Charlie Sheen Attacks 'Two and a Half Men' Creator in Radio Rant

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie Sheen really likes calling into radio shows. The troubled TV star took to the airwaves once again, this time calling into syndicated radio show The Alex Jones Show to slam Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre in a rambling, erratic interview.

Sheen ripped into Lorre, saying that he must have embarrassed him "in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process." But Sheen didn't stop there went on to call Lorre a "turd" and a "clown" and later used an anti-Semitic term while referring to Lorre's name. Sheen said he is eager to get back to work but has now seemingly escalated a very public battle with the producers the hit comedy.

Sheen was even more outrageous than in his recent series of radio interviews since announcing he was entering rehab, claiming he is "100 percent" clean.

"Here is your first pee test," he said to Alex Jones, the "next one goes in your mouth. No, you wont get high."

In the live interview Sheen also said he has no time for Alcoholic's Anonymous, saying, "I am special and I will never be one of you" and referred to the group as a "bootleg cult" with a success rate of five percent. He went on to say, "I have a disease? bulls**t! I cured it ... with my mind."

The interview comes as the actor left Los Angeles to spend some time in the Bahamas with his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller and his new girlfriend. In the interview Sheen says Mueller left the vacation early and wished her well in her travels, sarcastically adding that his ex-wife is "going to need it, badly."

Earlier this week Sheen's father, actor Martin Sheen, broke his silence about his troubled son.

"With prayer, we lift him up and we ask for everyone who cares about him to lift him up," Martin Sheen said Tuesday night at a movie premiere in London.

It was the first time Sheen's family has spoken publicly since the Two and a Half Men star was hospitalized for stomach pains after a night of heavy partying last month.

CBS Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television responded to Sheen's rant later Thursday in a joint statement.

"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season."
