Sometimes revenge doesn't smell so sweet — it smells like dog poop, at least in Charlie Sheen’s world.
Charlie Sheen unleashed a series of crude tweets on Wednesday, saying to his followers, “If you have a rotten egg, a roll of toilet paper or some dog s**t, I urge you to deliver it with 'extreme prejudice' to the campus run by trolls and charlatans. Make me proud.”
Sheen went a step further with his vulgarity, saying, “And if you're feeling the 'show and tell' of it all, smear the s**t to spell one name on the front door: VICTORIA.”
The Anger Management star, who had managed to stay out of the spotlight until now, is apparently angry that his 9-year-old daughter, Sam, was bullied by a fellow student, Victoria, 9, last year at Viewpoint School in Calabasas, Calif.
Allegedly, Victoria made attending the private school a living hell, making fun of Sam for her skin, looks, hair, and even Sheen getting terminated from Two and a Half Men. Sources close to the situation told TMZ that Sam became physically ill and could not attend school.
Sheen's ex-wife Denise Richards, who is Sam's mother, reportedly went to the school three times to meet with the administration about the bullying. Nothing came of the meeting, so Sheen took matters into his own hands.
During the third and final meeting last May, allegedly Richards met with Victoria’s parents, but they argued that Sam was lying about the situation. Following that meeting, Sheen and Richards decided to withdraw their daughter from the school.
Sheen told TMZ that the school, “…should be ashamed of itself for allowing the bullying to go on and try to hide it.”
The school has responded to Sheen’s criticism, telling the LA Times that the actor, infamous for his hot-headed outbursts, may have jeopardized the school and its students’ safety, "Like all responsible schools across our nation, we are concerned when any individual uses a social media forum to encourage actions that may risk the safety and security of any school."
The school added in a statement to the Times that its “highest priority is safety, security, and education of our students. Our administrators addressed the issue appropriately at that time. Our school takes accusations of bullying very seriously.”
Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said deputies visited the school and found no problems.
In a period of moral panic surrounding heighten concern about gun violence and school security, it would seem that Sheen would face some sort of legal action for threatening a school in any fashion. How are celebrities to learn that they are not above the law if they are not held accountable for their actions?
Since the bullying incident occurred last year, it begs the question, why is Sheen just getting around to lampooning his daughter’s former school now?
According to TMZ, Charlie explained that he egged on fans to take retributive action because his anger had been simmering for months and it had boiled over when he couldn’t stand it anymore, saying, “There’s no statute of limitations on bullying.”
In light of this latest outburst, it seems that instead of starring on Anger Management, Sheen ought to enroll in anger management.
