“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.
