In its letter dismissing Charlie Sheen from the CBS show “Two and a Half Men,” lawyers for Warner Bros. dumped the company’s whole basket of dirty laundry on the actor out.
Sheen “has been engaged in dangerously self-destructive conduct and appears to be very ill,” the letter from the firm of Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP to attorney Marty Singer said. Sheen’s condition “undermined the production in numerous and significant ways” and ultimately left Warner Bros., the producers of the hit sitcom, no choice but to pull the plug on the show and subsequently on himself.
Charlie finally gets fired. Warner Bros. pulls the plug on “Two and Half Men”.
It was only until Sheen began trashing his bosses that they began to react negatively to his behavior. Prior to his recent outbursts regarding Warner Bros. and the others involved in the production of his show there had been little serious criticism.
Even when his behavior demeaned women and involved illegal drug use it seemed that his bosses turned a blind eye for the sake of money and the success of television.
Well, all good things come to an end. Maybe now Charlie Sheen will get the help it seems that he so desperately needs.
We can only hope that this happens.
