“The boos and rejection by the audience at Charlie Sheen’s first live performance will only worsen Sheen’s already fragile mental and emotional state and could push him over the edge” warns warns Los Angeles based therapist and Human Behavior Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD.
“Sheen has never experienced rejection on such a large scale before and Sheen has obsessively and desperately been trying to get the public’s approval, to convince everyone that he is a winner but last night’s blatant disapproval and rejection by the audience could push Sheen to drugs again or his behavior could become even more extreme or even violent; his language is full of references to violence – a reflection of his deeper unresolved anger and rage” says Dr. Wanis.
“We love to associate with strong, confident winners but now the public’s perception has shifted from a winner fighting for what is right against the big Hollywood machine to being a desperate, negative, rambling former drug addict who is still seeking everyone’s approval as exemplified by his attempt on stage to connect to the audience by telling crack stories and asking who has smoked crack. Recall that something similar happened when the crowd turned on Tila Tequila and threw feces at her when she was on stage at a festival. The public generally supported Sheen but he gave them no reason to continue supporting him and in fact, he betrayed them by not being able to deliver entertainment or even one ‘torpedo of truth.'”
Wanis says that Sheen is an actor – an entertainer with a script but without the script he is lost for words and has no experience as a live entertainer. “Sheen falsely and foolishly believed that if all he gave the audience was more of the same (the porn actresses kissing, references to drug use) the audience would be satisfied; the audience expected comedy, fun, truth, inspiration, escape and instead all it got was the sad ‘torpedo of truth’ that Charlie Sheen needs help and is desperately trying to get the public to approve of him, reassure him he is a winner and side with him against Hollywood. ”
“Sheen is also used to simply walking the red carpet and being applauded and having his photo taken, but when you ask people to pay money to see you perform live, they expect you to stand and deliver and Sheen did neither.”
Wanis claims that Sheen’s words “I am tired of pretending like I am not special…I am tired of pretending like I am not bitchin’, a total frickin’ rock star from Mars” have now come back to haunt Sheen. “I revealed that Sheen subconsciously believes he is a loser and was desperately and obsessively trying to convince the public that he is a winner, and unlike real rock stars, Sheen doesn’t have the experience or the necessary mental and emotional grounding to handle the rejection and that could push him over the edge.”
“Sheen also said on a TV interview ‘I am a man of my word.’ Let’s see if he is and if he will actually finish the tour or dropout. However, the best case scenario is that Sheen does drop the tour and instead checks into a clinic for real help – before it is too late” concludes Dr. Wanis.
