Reportedly, this hiatus will last until the end of the season, at least, and it seems the final straw (because, there were plenty of reasons up until this point to just flip the off switch for now) was Sheen’s most recent (at the date of this writing) radio rant.
As The Huffington Post reported (with an included audio recording), Sheen spent his Thursday appearance on the Alex Jones Radio Show:
[...] touting his mental curing abilities, ninja training, magic fingertips and, most consequentially, ripping “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre – whom he later challenged to an ultimate fighting match.
Sheen also referred to Lorre as a “contaminated little maggot” who “can’t handle [his] power and [...] truth.”
Hmm. Let’s talk about contamination, power, and truth, shall we?
