Charlie Sheen and Hollywood Hypocrisy

“Charlie Sheen – beating a woman? Okay. Insulting your boss? No way! That’s the inconsistency and hypocrisy of Hollywood” says one therapist and human behavior expert after CBS and Warner Bros. today shut down ‘Two and a Half Men’ following Sheen’s public insults on radio against his boss Chuck Lorre.

“Hollywood cares more about racist remarks than it does about actual violence against women – although both are seriously wrong” says Los Angeles -based Human Behavior & Relationship Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD.  “CBS executives turned a blind eye and ignored the fact that Charlie Sheen pleaded to guilty to abusing his wife Christmas day last year but when he verbally attacked Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre, CBS and Warner Bros. execs cancelled the show for the rest of the season – and this reveals that Hollywood doesn’t care about violence against women” says Dr. Wanis.

Charlie Sheen told a radio show today that Chuck Lorre is a “clown,” a “stupid, stupid little man”, and added that he “violently hates” Lorre; Sheen also made an anti-semitic remark by twice referring to Lorre with a name that sounds like “Haim Levine” (Lorre was born Charles Michael Levine.) Wanis says Hollywood sends the message to men that it’s okay to hit a woman, be a misogynist, do drugs, use prostitutes and be an irresponsible father and role model, but, you cross the line when you insult your boss or make even a partial racial slur” reveals Wanis.

“Hollywood execs potentially shirk their responsibility when they fail to protect underage actors on the show (such as Angus Turner Jones who plays Jake Harper) from the bad-boy ways and poor role-model example of Charlie Sheen – they should have fired him the instant he hit a woman or used illegal drugs; execs acted much too late – Angus Turner Jones, who is at such a vulnerable and impressionable age and stage, has probably already been damaged” says Dr. Wanis.

“Sheen’s public and deliberate tirade also reflects his ego, arrogance, entitlement, narcissism and deep-seated anger” says Dr. Wanis.  “Charlie Sheen is now learning that even a Hollywood superstar is not invincible nor is he indispensable; and while Sheen seems okay with throwing away 9.5 million dollars – what would have been his salary for the remaining 8 canceled episodes, Sheen selfishly ignored the fact that many other people involved in the  production of the show have also lost money. Charlie Sheen needs to learn that he is not the center of the universe and the world does not revolve around him” concludes Dr. Wanis.

    Charlie may just be the most brilliant intellect on the planet. And I’m NOT kidding!

    Hollywood is a dung heap, and he is rightfully rebelling against the idiocy, degradation and filth around him. American poplar culture is a cesspool. He alone seem willing to call a spade a spade.

    Bravo, Charlie Sheen!

      Dear Mike,

      I am not sure that I fully understand your point about Charlie Sheen. You state that he “may just be the most brilliant intellect on the planet.” Are you saying that he is superior in intellect to scientists and laureate winners? How would you be able to ascertain this?

      You also state that “he is rightfully rebelling against the idiocy, degradation and filth around him. American poplar culture is a cesspool.” If you are referring to ‘filth’ as moral filth – he is contributing to that and he is part of the “cesspool’: drugs, beating a woman (his wife Brooke), being an irresponsible father, etc.

      Incidentally, his speech and references to having “tiger blood, Adonis DNA” and a “10,000 year old brain” don’t reflect the behavior and beliefs of an intellect but rather the delusions of a user of meth or other drugs.

      You also state about Sheen “He alone seem willing to call a spade a spade. ” That is not true. I am also telling you that he is a misogynist – he has abused women on multiple occasions and pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife Brooke Mueller. From my article about top ten meltdowns of 2010:
      https://patrickwanis.com/blog/index.php/2010/12/27/the-top-10-celebrity-meltdowns-of-2010-2/

      “Charlie Sheen pleaded guilty to abusing his wife Christmas day last year [2009]. Sheen’s wife, Brooke Mueller says her husband Charlie Sheen sat on her, strangled her, and held a knife to her throat on Christmas day. Charlie Sheen was arrested on Christmas Day after Brooke Mueller, his third wife, told police he had pulled a knife on her and threatened to have her killed; Sheen pleaded guilty to misdemeanor third degree assault and could have gotten 3 years in jail but a judge sentenced Sheen to a 30-day jail term, and was ordered to undergo 36 hours of counseling on domestic violence. ”

      So yes, let’s call a spade a spade. Sheen pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife.
      Now, ask yourself why you choose to idolize such a person – who has abused women – when you say “Bravo, Charlie Sheen!”

      All the best,
      Patrick
