  1. That’s OK, you twat!

    Oh, sorry: I meant to say “megastar” but my lisp got in the way.

    1. Hate when that happens.

  2. They must have been doing the “Hokey Cokey” that niite… take your left foot out put your right foot in! in one apology he (ahem) makes amends to LGBT people then offends “all” people present by saying he meant to call them “lying maggot a’holes”

    1. “How we doing? … Lying bunch of f**got a**holes, how we doing?”

      The TV and film actor has now apologised for the comments, and any offence they may have caused. He said:

      “I meant no ill will and intended to hurt no one and I apologize if I offended anyone… I meant to say maggot but I have a lisp.”

  3. He’s obviously visciously homophobic.

    Can you imagine hime using the word “nigger” and apologising- saying he meant to say “bigger” but he has a lisp!

  4. he should wear a less obvious wig

    1. I like the wig, really helps to sell the ‘crazy’.

  5. Why does the headline say he apologised? That snide statement contained no such sentiment.

    WHAT! Charlie Sheen isnt homophobic. what a pile of bull Pink News. yes it was a homophobic slur. but not aimed at us other gay people. anyway isnt Charlie Sheen actually Bi-Winning? (Bisexual). doesnt he have close friends who are gay too? & if he really hated gay people that much he wouldnt hang around with Lindsay Lohan & Miley Cyrus (who also love us gays) would he. again it must have been a slow news day in the pink news office.

    1. Wow, that’s really your response to this article?
      Sheen may or may not hate Gays. His casual use of the word FAGGOT, which is rightly likened to the word N!GG3R demonstrates a profound lack of respect. His apology (as reported) was sarcastic and insulting. I would suggest to you that his friendship with Lindsay Lohan is possibly not based on their commitment to Gay Rights.

  7. “I meant to say maggot but I have a lisp”! Glorious! Best one I’ve heard. Is there a compilation of 2012’s worst excuses? We fell about reading that here.

  8. So “lisp” is the new word for alcohol problem now.

  9. “How we doing? … Lying bunch of f**got a**holes, how we doing?””

    Well, if the testimony of your ex-wife is anything to go by, some of us are doing a lot better than you, sir.

  10. Why expect anything else from an old drunk!

  11. Jesus Christ, THAT’S what passes for an apology these days? Why is it that the gay press and much of the gay community will accept a statement as an apology that is actually more offensive than the the original offense itself?

    (Before anyone checks my spelling, let me point out that I’m American)

    1. No American peculiarities in that one.

      1. Offense = American… Offence in the English speaking world

        1. ‘Offensive” (the word he used) has the same spelling on both sides of the pond, I think you’ll find.
          Someone even gave you a thumbs up for that.

  12. Step away from the alcohol and cocaine, you look like you are almost 60 years old at 47. That would probably help you with your lisp too.

    FADING Former Stars, do/say anything in failed attempt to stay current. So long charlie!!!!

      Mary Flying Eagle. if Charlie Sheen is now a fading former star. how come he is starring in a new comedy series Anger Management & next year in two comedy films A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III & Scary Movie 5 & also in a action sequel to the awesome Machete called Machete Kills then?. it sounds like he is still Winning to me.
