Media enabling Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen, star of the gigantic CBS hit Two and a Half Men has spiraled out of control. His recent escapades have ended the run of the #1 sitcom in America. Hearing him rant about wanting a raise to return to the set of the popular TV show is a little baffling, to say the least.
However, why give Sheen a platform to mount, when he is this troubled? It's obvious that his drug and alcohol problems have spun out of control. Watching him not is equivalent of witnessing a train wreck. The media are having a field day with this.
It's sad really. Sheen needs to get help ASAP if he does not want to follow in the footsteps of Chris Farley, John Belushi, Corey Haim, Anna Nicole Smith, and others who have died much too young. It's a shame the media are sensationalizing this. Sheen is not in a sound mental state of mind. The best thing Hollywood can do is to cut ties with him, until he has achieved a respectable measure of sobriety.
I see nothing amusing about Sheen's problems. It's never fun to watch a person self destruct, regardless if he is a celebrity.
