Charlie Sheen Officially Fired From ‘Two and a Half Men’

Published 3 years ago by , Updated February 15th, 2014 at 5:02 pm,

Today, in a surprising turn of events, CBS and Warner Bros. have decided to end all speculation about whether or not Charlie Sheen would be returning to Two and a Half Men and officially fired the outspoken actor from the hit television sitcom.

While Sheen has been publicly attacking his, now, former employers for the past month, the actor’s recent public antics appear to have pushed CBS and Warner Bros. passed the limits of acceptable absurdity.

In the eleven page letter that Warner Bros. sent to Sheen’s attorney, they state that “[Charlie Sheen] has been engaged in dangerously self-destructive conduct and appears to be very ill.” Continuing, the letter then describes the public antics that Sheen has been involved in, as of recent – including the continuous attacks against Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre.

To make sure that Sheen knows exactly why he’s being fired from the series – and why having a no morals clause in his contract doesn’t mean a thing – Warner Bros. explained that they are able to terminate anyone who has committed “a felony offense involving moral turpitude.”

Believing that Sheen has committed said offence, Warner Bros. states:

“There is ample evidence supporting Warner Bros. reasonable good faith opinion that Mr. Sheen has committed felony offenses involving moral turpitude (including but not limited to furnishing of cocaine to others as part of the self-destructive lifestyle he has described publicly) that have ‘interfere[d] with his ability to fully and completely render all material services required’ under the agreement.”

In the lengthy letter – which also includes a link to almost every news article written on this matter – Warner Bros. also detailed how they attempted to provide him with the help they believe he needed by having their corporate jet ready to take him to a treatment facility. Unfortunately, Charlie Sheen declined this offer.

As expected, a response from Sheen himself also accompanied the news of his firing. Speaking with TMZ, Sheen said:

This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge (his house with the “goddesses”) because now I can take all of their bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”

While Sheen believes that he will ultimately win any legal proceeding that results from his firing, Warner Bros. made sure to note that they believe their case is sound – and even went so far as to say that they reserve the right to take legal action against Sheen. Even though Sheen touted his no morals clause in his contract, it appears that Warner Bros.’ moral turpitude provision will come out on top.

As for Two and a Half Men, will this popular series ever see the light of day? At this moment, it’s hard to tell, but from the recent rumblings of overheard conversations, CBS and Warner Bros. are still looking for a way to bring the series back. Last week, CBS president Les Moonves was heard speaking with John Stamos about the possibility of him joining the cast for next season.

The only obvious thing I can say to that is, “Have mercy!”

We’ll continue to update this article as more information is released.

  1.

    • Well Kimberly; I would agree more with you if you actually used real words like “they” and “know”. I mean “cray cray” really? This is just a sad comment and I’m surprised that it hasn’t been deleted because of all the lack of common sense used to write it. Here’s a tip: use punctuation. It’s all just jumbled up together and makes no sense. It’s comments like these that make me question people; and I’m 12 as well but you don’t see me typing like I’ve never used grammar. Honestly; people these days are worried about keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools, they should start with your keyboard.

      • Heard of commas, mate?

  3. Show sux without sheen hire him back immediately

  4. Charlie Sheen, I miss him. If there is any way,bring him back,like as a ghost or something. You did that before. The only reason I wasn’t sad when I first heard about this was because I thought Charlie quit the show. I don’t know if he would come back, but if he will, bring him back… please

  5. My husband & I have been avid fans since the first series.
    We find the script extremely clever and funny.
    We are in our seventies and still enjoy watching each episode. It has been missing for some while but recently returned. We live in the U.K.so we are probably watching repeats.
    We really hope that Mr Sheen and his company can resolve their differences as a lot of people out there who miss the series.

  6. Dear CBS and WB,
    We are all humans, Mr. Charlie Sheen may be going through some rough times and I cross my fingers for him to get back to life.
    I don’t know the background of the case who did what to whom, but it lead to Charlie not being part of the sitcom anymore.
    If that is so, please close the sitcom for good.
    Although I have my respect for Ashton Kutcher (who is a great actor), NOONE, unfortunately not even AK can replace THE man of the T&HM.
    There is the only and will remain unique and genuine Charlie, and whoever grown with the old series should see that it is not funny anymore, everything is synthetic, unrealistic and NO FUN.
    Me and my family would very much like Mr. Sheen to return, even my 13 years old son have stopped watching his most favorite sitcom saying, the sitcom died with Charlie and he tried liking the new half man, it just does not work.
    Leaving the scene at the highest popularity is the right way, continuing with fake is not funny and wise either.
    Please think of it.

    • Marko, I agree with you one way. I just started watching series-es by T&HM this year(2014) January while I didn’t know what to watch. These were repeats but, they really captured my interest and I followed in from its first episode up to season 8. Now I just started Season 9 episode 1. I started wandering why Charlie was not there. When I googled it, result=fired. I tried watching episode two but I couldn’t finish it. Now I just hope Warner Bros. and CBS can hear our cry.

    • yes charlie sheen should be brought back people have lost interest in two and half men

  7. My place of employment would of fired me if I did what he did. Everyone seems to forget that he is using an illegal substance and should be held accountable. We would all be fired from our jobs. He is not above the law and neither is a moral clause in a contract. If that be the case then we could write up a contract include the moral clause and start committing crimes. I don’t think so. So to everyone who wants him back “WAKE UP AND SMELL THE TOAST”!!! He isnot that great. You all need to get a life,……

  8. I Charlie Sheen referring to Jon Cryer when he mentions “wathiscock”?

  9. PLEASE Can someone tell me WHO Charlie Sheen is talking about when he says that he will glad not to have to look at “whathiscock” anymore as stated in the 7th paragraph from the top. Is it Jon Cryer or “Jake”????

  10. It’s not 2 and half men… it’s charlie sheen and few other actors… it’s saddening they replaced him like nothing happened… this sitcom is over for me.

    Anyway, I want to thank you for those 8 series of fun.
