Charlie Sheen Finds Success Ridiculing Ex Wives, Detroit


Charlie Sheen finally figured out how to get an audience on his side. Find scapegoats. In Cleveland on Tuesday night he led a crowd in chanting, alternately, “F–k Detroit” and “F–k that bitch” regarding his ex wife Denise Richards, mother of his young daughters.

In Chicago, two nights ago, Charlie called ex wife Brooke Mueller a “kidnapper bitch.” Otherwise, he’s changed his tune, to wanting his job back on “Two and a Half Men.” His “Violent Torpedoes of Truth” tour has no entertainment value besides all that.

Next stop: Columbus, Ohio. And then Radio City Music Hall in New York. There are still thousands of seats available on StubHub despite his press officer putting out notes that the prices have gone up. Not much. You can still see Sheen in New York for under thirty bucks. Meantime, Sheen is trying to trademark 22 different phrases.

PS Yesterday Sheen’s actor-director brother Emilio Estevez tweeted this message: “Film is an illusion, fame is ephemeral – faith and family are what matter.”

Well put, Emilio.
