Charlie Sheen is angry and disgusted with Chuck Lorre, Warner Brothers, and Ashton Kutcher – and who can blame him? The owners of “Two and a Half Men” have formally told Charlie to stop using what they consider to be their photos in the promotion of his new show ‘Anger Management.’ Most likely at Chuck Lorre’s urging, lawyers of Warner Bros. sent a cease and desist letter to Charlie and the owners of ‘Anger Management’- demanding they stop using the pics from Charlie’s time on ‘Two and a Half Men.’ Stop using your own pics Charlie – or else!
Well Charlie is not one to take this move against him without the tiger spilling some blood in return.
Charlie spoke to TMZ Live today: “I’m tired of lying … I’m tired of pretending the show doesn’t suck … I’m tired of pretending Ashton doesn’t suck. It’s nothing personal … I just feel bad for him … he’s saddled with such bad writing.”
The world is strange in the sense that a person can lose the rights to their own image. Of course we can understand Warner Brothers wanting to protect their property rights but couldn’t they give poor old Charlie a break here? I mean do they think that the current incarnation of ‘Two and a Half Men’ can get any worse if Charlie’s pics are used to promote ‘Anger Management?’ Ashton Kutcher will remain a dud regardless of what Charlie does.
This whole campaign is incredibly stupid – what’s the big deal about him using two measly photos to promote his upcoming new show? It’s obvious that “someone” still has a grudge against him, and that “someone” is Chuck Lorre. Charlie WAS ‘Two and a Half Men’ and everyone watching the current Tiger-Bloodless production can see just how critical he was to the show’s success. Do you think Charlie should be allowed to use his own images or are they not really his any longer? Should permission have been obtained from Warner Bros. before using the photos? Will Ashton respond to Charlie’s insult – will Chuck?
