Chuck Lorre -- Blasting Charlie With Monkey Jokes?

4/29/2011 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chuck Lorre is taking a vicious shot at an actor -- accusing him of being a drug addict who is "impossible to work with" ... but the shocker is he's NOT talking about Charlie Sheen. Maybe.

At the end of last night's "The Big Bang Theory" ... Lorre's vanity card seems to be joking about a monkey that was on the episode -- saying its "behavior became increasingly erratic, to the point of refusing to come out of his trailer to rehearse."

The card continues, "The monkey is a heroin addict. Yes, hard as it may be to believe, the monkey had a monkey on his back." It goes on to say the monkey is in detox and a 12 step program.

But after Lorre's announcement he's retooling "Two and a Half Men" without Charlie -- and Charlie's nuclear response, we gotta ask ...

Lorri should let that monkey replace Charlie for at least one episode. **** he might just have himself a new hit. I wonder what he would call it?

Ya know Chuck should actually take the high road (no pun intended) and leave it alone. Any words he says about Charlie Sheen will only give douchebag Charlie more ammunition to lash out and there is no 'winner' in sight in this situation. Chuck would actually 'win' if he would focus on re-tooling the show and having it become even more succesful without Charlie. Time to just let that chapter of the show go and move forward. The best revenge is success. Charlie Sheen doesn't have much time left as it is given his current state.

On a side note though I think Scott baio would be a perfect fit in Charlie's role

There is no comparison here. One is a trained show business animal with a brain of a toddler, and the other is a monkey.

My mother once told me: Someone else's poor behavior does not justify my poor behavior.

This stuff isn't funny, it's disguised as humor, but it's just tacky and in poor taste, for all parties involved. All appear chonologically to be adults, but their behavior says otherwise.

I never watched the 2 1/2 men show or read the vanity cards until this all came to the gossip columns - But now I've become a huge Chuck Lorre fan and have read all the vanity cards because he is such a good writer and I am a fan of The Big Bang Theory -
As for this last card - yes it is a very subtle way of showing the disaster of working with a "monkey" with entitlement issues - I loved it!
As for Carlos well now that I've watched some re-runs of TAHM his 'real life' character has soured the show for me although I must say the other characters had much more demanding and comical roles - IMO

I look forward to the day when Charlie Sheen stops being an egotistical whiner and disappears from view -

Lorre's comments are a slap across the faces of monkeys everywhere. Imaging being compared to Sheen, what an insult!!!

Now maybe a roach with a drug habit would be a fair comparison. I think PETA should get involved with this event to right the wrong done to monkeys everywhere.

Who cares whether he is talking about Charlie or not. These comments he comes up with are sofa king gay. You would never know that he actually writes hit shows. We'll see what he comes up with for the "new, improved (and crack-less)" TAHM and whether it can match the ratings TAHM had with Old Man Pappy Crack - not an easy task at all.

Visit the Live Nation website. Is the Charlie Sheen tour in the top 10 sellers?

NO.

Click on Charlie's link (on the Live Nation home page) and look at the tour's "official fan rating":

2.75 out of 5.

Charlie Sheen says, "The Scoreboard Doesn't Lie."
