Troubling

DaGoddess @ 00:51

In which I use my burst of lucidity and lack of fever to expound on something not personal.

Anyone else deeply disturbed that a certain sitcom star’s rants and ramblings often contain violent imagery in regards to anyone who doesn’t agree with him?

I find it rather unsettling that he continues to get all sorts of press and all these psychologists and psychiatrists talk about his “mania” but don’t address the threats he’s made.

Where Charlie Sheen was once funny and Two and a Half Men a show I made a point to watch, his antics have made it painful to do so. He stopped being funny. There was plenty of good writing, but his performance was flat. About a month ago, there was an episode in which he was horribly pale, sweaty looking, and listless. No matter how much makeup they slapped on him, no matter how they lit that set, he looked bad. Really bad. And I had to turn it off even though I love Rose and Jake and Herb. It’s no longer on my watch list. Such a shame, too, because we had SQUAB! And Vod, Vod Kaknockers. And Benjamin Franklin in a rainstorm. And Alan being “the guy” to repair the satellite dish to disastrous, but hilarious results. All that is gone.

I’m not going to mourn the loss of a TV show. But I will mourn the loss of a man’s sanity and society’s refusal to address the severity of the violence in his “interviews”. It’s time to stop creening our necks to watch the wreck as we drive by and to get back to protecting people from becoming his future victims.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

  1. It’s horribly sad. His rants have verged on the brink of psychotic lately.

    I do love the show, but…

  2. I heard on the radio this morning (I didn’t see the actual interview) that half way through the 20/20 interview Sheen seemed so whacked out that they stopped everything and asked him to take a drug test, to which he agreed, and passed.

    I’d almost feel better if he had tested positive. If that’s his REAL state of mind…OMG! :shock:

  3. His bipolar disorder is so bad now that any non-rich and non-famous person would have already been committed. Which is too bad, there should be someone that could help him.

  5. The media needs to quit giving celebrities free passes to misbehave and instead start vilifying them for the creeps that some of them are, or have become.

  6. I think everyone would feel better if he’d tested positive because then we’d understand the behavior better.

    The simple truth is, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. This isn’t entertainment. This is real life. And watching someone circle the drain isn’t fun. I hate shows like Intervention and all that for this very reason. THIS IS NOT ENTERTAINMENT. This is a cry for help. But as long as people continue to treat this all like fun and games, this is the sort of coverage we’ll get.

    I’m done. I’ve opted out. I hope you will, too. (This is the very same reason I no longer write about politics, other celebs, etc. I’m not playing. I’m not going to bring more attention to bad behavior and let someone else get rich off it. Not me. Nope.)
