  4. OK…When do these idiot celebrities no longer get a pass for something overtly and nastily homophobic, racist, or sexist?

  5. “… I apologize if I offended anyone” and “I meant to say ‘maggot’, but I have a lisp.” Those are apologies? Really?

  6. It’s hard to believe that he’s the spawn of such a class act like Martin Sheen, someone who always stands up for our community.

  7. personally we as a community are way too sensitive for our own good. someone calls me a f@ggot and i just keep trucking. yes i was severely bullied in school for it to the point of switching schools but we need to get over it.

  15. Interesting use of language from Mr. Sheen, especially if you look back at the divorce proceedings several years ago, where Denise Richards alleged that Charlie’s computer history revealed regular visits to gay porn sites (and she maintained it was his own personal computer no one else had access to…).

  16. 1. He’s a moron so who gives a shit what he does, I think this is the least of his problems. Can’t believe I’m saying this, as I hate this man with everything in me, but at least he apologized. Most people wouldn’t! Especially when he doesn’t usually give a damn about who he offends xD and 2. Like most people who say it, he probably didn’t mean it to target the gay community(though it does). Most people who say it just use it as an insult, without thinking who else it could hurt. But its Charlie Sheen. His contribution to society, which is mostly a negative one, is irrelevant. Its Charlie Sheen. C’mon now. Charlie. Sheen. Who cares?? xD

  19. How is that an apology? And when he says “nigger” does he say he has a lisp and meant to say “bigger”. What a tool.
