During a live radio interview Thursday, Sheen blasted the show's creator, calling him a "turd." In addition, the unpredictable actor also launched a verbal assault on Thomas Jefferson, labeling the Founding Father a "p***y."
"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen’s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros TV have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season," the two companies said in a statement.
The Hollywood Reporter adds:
The move was not unexpected: Before lashing out at Lorre during an interview on the syndicated Alex Jones Show, Sheen said he was told that if he went on "attack" execs would cancel the show.
During Sheen's lengthy tirade on the program, he repeatedly refered to Lorre as "Chaim Levine," and said he spent "close to the last decade effortlessly and magically" converting Lorre's "tin can into pure gold."
Later, Sheen told TMZ he "violently hated" Lorre and that he "owned" him.
