Anyone following my hubs lately is probably aware that I really don't like Charlie Sheen. I'll spare you a lecture but to sum up, I think the man is a tasteless, misogynist, violent maggot and while I'm not surprised that he's getting so much publicity and attention for it, I'm saddened that people seem to have forgotten the terrible things he's done so easily.
What do you think of him? Do you think he's doing all this for publicity or is he genuinely just crazy? Do you like him?
It is disturbing to see the attention, and now the jokes everywhere. I guess I have a different standard for what I find humorous. He's obviously a mentally unbalanced human who is in denial of his problems.
I agree with you. I wrote a hub yesterday about how mental illness isn't a lughing matter. I talked about Charlie Sheen. He is probably all the things that people have said about him and more - but to see the personal distingration played out before us could never be said to be humorous.
I'm unclear on what you mean? I do think Sheen should have served prison time for his abuse (I believe he has only done probation and forced rehab time), but I don't think we can blame the legal system for Sheen being abusive to his partners. The responsibility lies with him.
I totally agree with you ,but my point was (which you answered) was if justice had of been adequately served in the first place,perhaps we wouldnt still be witnessing this 'manbrat' and his high profile!
On the one hand, I do like that Sheen is giving the CBS execs the middle finger in a big way. It's entertaining to me because it is obviously something that a lot of actors would love to do. On the other hand I agree that he seems to be unbalanced and out of control. I really think all the drugs and alcohol have short-circuited his brain somewhat and he needs some sort of medical attention.
"It's entertaining to me because it is obviously something that a lot of actors would love to do."
Yes, but it's infuriating that verbally attacking the CBS execs is what finally got him fired. If you look at the timeline, the CBS execs were totally willing to overlook the fact that he was routinely threatening and beating up wives, girlfriends, and prostitutes, but as soon as he starts badmouthing them, oh no, can't have that! Frankly, it's disgusting.
At first I didn't pay attention. Later I had some sympathy for him. Later still, I lost the sympathy. After that, I stopped paying attention (except for seeing this thread a few times and eventually deciding to post, of course
Having said that, I really think there should be some kind of thing where someone could get a court order against media covering people going through this kind of thing (showing clear signs of a mental-health issue), as part of not fueling things while they're in that "mode" and as part of kind of protecting them from all the stuff that results from these giant, public, melt-down, type of things. If someone were acting like he has mental-health problems, he'd get a little protection. If he were faking it and just trying to get attention it wouldn't work.
