If you haven't heard about Charlie Sheen's recent meltdowns you must be living under a rock. Charlie, real name Carlos Irwin Estevez is everywhere. Spouting off gandoise, deluded commentary in interviews and generally making himself look ridiculous. It seems you can't draw another breath without hearing something new about him. His life is spiralling out of control and right now seems to have one of two endings; bad and bad. His father must be very embarassed. It's funny I hear you say. It's hilarious! But is it? Is it really? What's even wierder but unsurprising is the media's reaction to it, his antics are being glorified. If Charlie was black or a woman he'd be crucified. Look what happened to Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan who's actually a genuinely talented actress, but being from hollywood royalty means you get away with shit. He's been behaving terribly and going unpunished for a long time. He shot ex girlfriend Kelly Preston now married to John Travolta.
Charlie's also a fan of racist rants. He left a bunch of racist voicemails for ex wife Denise Richards calling her "A Fucking nigger." then used the old "I'm not racist, my best friend is black!" lame getout. Charming. Nasty piece of work. Hey Charlie, been hangin out with Mel Gibson? Having beers together and slating black people, jews and anybody you consider "other." He's an over paid, over indulged and mediocre actor at best. Charlie you may be loaded but you're not "winning." You need help. You're not 21 anymore and your antics aren't cool. You're careening off the tracks in spectacular fashion and people are laughing at you. They're vicariously amusing themselves through your real life and it's a sad sideshow.
