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 ...


No Avatar


I guess the shoe is on the other foot now for all of the sheen fans on here....anyone who doesn't like charlie has been accused of being jealous because we don't have his money or career....You all are starting to sound awfully jealous of Chuck Lorre's POWER and money.........and for vanity cards that are so ridiculous, you all are sure giving them a lot of POWER!!!! Be careful what you wish for.....look at what happened to charlie....he is a shining example.....what was it he said about hating that show and those shirts.....

A coward is a man who has to pay for sex because he is totally incapable of keeping the love and respect of a real woman. A coward is a man who has plead guilty to domestic violence against his wife. A coward is a man who does not have custody of his own beautiful children

A coward is a man who convinces everyone he is sticking it to his bosses and standing up for himself and then goes on a national tour and asks his audiences, multiple audiences to help him get his job back.

''Although 45-year-old Charlie is currently suing Chuck and Warner Bros. for $100 million, he recently expressed his desire to return to the sitcom and hinted that he would have amended his past behaviour if he had known it would lead to him losing his job.
"Had they told me at the end of season eight that that behaviour wasn't going to be cool, I would have adjusted it."


So poor Charlie got too big for his britches, lost every ounce of common sense and decency and pretty much pushed and pushed like a raging bully with no regard for anyone.
How much tolerance does he think people will have for an immature ass with an attitude? 45 years old and still has no self-discipline. 3 year olds know how to stop their tantrums - in fact, many 3 year old don't even have tantrums.
You earned your firing, little boy. You stay in the corner, you cry and you beg, LOSER! There are no rewards for a 45 year old Sheenius who has spat and crapped on everyone and didn't know better.
How warped is this idiot, anyway?

real deal
It's obviously aimed at Charlie. It seems he's saying that they had cause to be concerned that Charlie's "personal life" was having a noticable effect on the set. And if only Charlie had played ball and gone to detox and rehab in Palm Springs, or some other resort, everything would have been fine.
real deal
Instead, Charlie is out of a job. In the final analysis, whether you think rehab works or doesn't, it may have indeed been worth it for Charlie to at least play the game. #duh #math!!! A 28 day break would have done him good. Instead he went the Sober Valley Lodge route, with crack breaks, porn stars, media blitz, Sheen's Korner and now these stupid shows.

But who isn't a Monday morning quarterback?

He might be alright if nobody contacts his former employer...LOL
real deal
how can you say ohh he needs rehab rehab doesnt work for everyone and def for the majority since they only have a 6% success rate ohh so you where over at his house when he was getting clean and saw him smoke crack and didnt charlie take a couple of pee test for reporters right after he was done detoxing I mean come on that makes no sence hes using but still pees clean he must really be a warlock then and charlie didnt do any interviews intill after he tryed to come back to work besides talking to dan patrick by phone about sports which I think might of even been after he tryed to come back to work and so what he only had one porn star and a model over at his house but they where there to take care of him and friends where over for support and to look after charlie and I think a doctor or doctors came there to make sure he was fine too and so what detoxing and having girls and friends there makes charlie bad and makes getting clean void in your minds and bree the porn star isnt really known for being a huge party animal and has said in many interviews before she even met charlie has said I only drink maybe 2 to 3 times a month and I mean she did get a dui but that doesnt make her a party animal but a person who made a bad decision and a dui is normal these days haha and yes him going to rehab would of prob helped him but they should of just been happy he got clean rehab or not and tryed to finish the season and him only missing a week or 2 compared to a month meant the show could of gone on and made money which is all that matters in math duhhh and how do you know 28 days would of done him good I mean I guess a break is good for anyone but if he was up to finish the season they should of tryed to finish it and then charlie prob would of never of started bashing wb. I would be mad if I just got clean and went through hell and was gonna man up and come back to work when my health wasnt in the best of shape so I could finish the show ive doing for 8 years and the company told me the season's cancelled because we wherent ready for you to come back so fast.

Warner Bros.' rebuttal to that joke of a lawsuit makes it very clear - to anyone with even a third grade education - that Sheen lost that job all by his lonesome. It had VERY LITTLE to do with his PRIVATE life, and EVERYTHING to do with his behavior on the set.

Sheen cost them valuable production time with his benders and antics (missing rehearsals, missing his cues, forgetting his lines), he failed to abide by the terms his employers set for him to return to the set, and his employers fired him. Period. Same treatment ANY of us would get if we f**ked up on the job. Well, better, actually, since I seriously doubt that anyone else would have a private plane standing by to take one to rehab at their EMPLOYER'S EXPENSE. Srsly. And he gave them the finger anyway.

He compounded that by telling anyone who'd listen how terrible, awful, nasty, and ugly his employers were to him- those same employers who were holding that PRIVATE FREAKIN' PLANE for him to go take a little "vacation." NOOOO, Sheen wanted to do things HIS way, so he freakin' BLINKED and was CURED! I'm amazed that he isn't canonized by now by working this terrific MIRACLE!

I don't really blame Lorre for taking a crack at the crackhead. After everything Sheen put the CAST, the CREW, the WRITERS and the PRODUCTION COMPANY through, Sheen earned AT LEAST this, if not more. IF that's what Lorre was even doing. It's all conjecture on our part, which is just the way Lorre wants it. Sheen is on the downhill slide... nudge his shaky butt a little and watch him foam at the mouth, much like the rabid dog he is. I find it entertaining, myself.

Who knows? Maybe with a little more foaming at the mouth, Sheen will finally go over that edge and get the help he needs, instead of continuing to be enabled by all the leeches he has sucking him off regularly.


The talk is out there among insiders... they're worried that he's gonna fall HARD. Let's hope that it isn't too hard and it isn't too late to save what's left of someone who, at one time, had some talent as an ACTOR. Not a comedian, not as a comedy writer, not even as a creative talent, but as an ACTOR - a guy who was FED his lines and performed them to the best of his ability.

Sheen DID NOT participate in writing that show. Sheen DID NOT participate in the creation of that show. Sheen may have lived that part, but it WAS NOT created for him. He just happened to fill the bill when it came time to cast.

And for all the poo-flinging monkeys who keep getting down on their knees to enable Sheen to keep this farce going... better stock up on those knee pads, kiddies, it's gonna be a bumpy, rough ride!

you say charlie was mad because he just got clean and then they wouldn't let him come back to work...
He had been clean for about a week.....and if you can't see why this would cause alarm to these professionals who had been witnessing his drug abuse and erratic behavior for years and years, then there is no point to a discussion about it. Even professional rehab did not work for charlie so they are supposed to believe that he did it by himself in a week? According to reports, he had been having problems on the set and then add that to all of the other meltdowns he'd been having in public and they offered him a jet to take him anywhere and get help and he basically laughed in their faces and like it or not, they are THE BOSSES and he is the employee and he did not want to show a sincere effort to get well and so therefore they did not have to let him back to work. It is called TOUGH LOVE and now for Charlie Sheen it is called TOUGH LUCK PAL! Why would anyone running a multi billion organization want this man on their set at that point after he'd been acting out the way he was...

XCLENT post, but like the narcissist that Charlie is, and how blind his sheeple are, I think they wont get the message till he hits the bottom and bounces hard.

Bada boom bada bang! Sooner rather than later!

You mean ... the "well connected sources?" So glad they're talking to you.


Your sources seem to talk to you all the time, so what's your big issue? Jealousy and resentment?
