Charlie Sheen took to social media to try and make amends for his harsh words for current "Two and a Half Men" star Ashton Kutcher.
During a phone interview with TMZ, Sheen said of his "Two and a Half Men" replacement, "I'm tired of lying. I'm tired of pretending the show doesn't suck. I'm tired of pretending Ashton doesn't suck."
Kutcher replaced Sheen as star of "Two and a Half Men" this season after a series of events -- including public statements slamming "Men" creator Chuck Lorre -- led to Sheen's firing. Sheen's character, Charlie Harper, was killed off on the show. "It's nothing personal," Sheen said during the TMZ interview. "I just feel bad for him. He's saddled with such bad writing."
Now, less than a week after his original comments, the ex-"Men" star has taken to Twitter to issue an apology to Kutcher. Read the full statement below.
I was disrespectful to a man doing his best.
I got excited and threw you into a crossfire.
The rest of my statement I stand behind.
You, however, deserve better.
Safety in your travels good sir.
- The "late" Charlie Harper
Sheen's rebounding from his "Men" dismissal with "Anger Management," a new sitcom on FX. In "Anger Management," Sheen will star as an anger management therapist opposite Shawnee Smith and Selma Blair. The show has an initial episode order of 10, but a deal in place that could see it produce as many as 100 episodes.
