Not Winning

Popular culture seems to have an innate obsession with ‘screw-ups.’ Take for instance Charlie Sheen (actor) most known for his role as ‘Charlie Harper’ on the television sitcom Two and a Half Men.

Charlie’s personal life has been an up hill battle because of his hard partying ways. His personal life includes being married three times, having five children, shooting a fiancee in the arm, drug and alcohol abuse, violence, criminal mischief, and rehab too name a few things.

After recently being a topic of tabloid scandal, being fired from the popular sitcom Two and a Half Men, and coining the phrase ‘winning,’ Sheen announced a nation wide tour called, “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option.” Not only were people dying to see his show but the tour sold in 18 minutes, a TicketMaster record. On opening night “Charlie Sheen was heckled, booed and eventually abandoned by the crowd at his inaugural stage show, with many of the audience members chanting “refund” and heading for the exits even before the show abruptly ended, says Mike Householder and Jeff Karoub in an article for the Globe and Mail.”

Maybe some people have finally come to their senses and realized Sheen is no more than a pathologic screwup/drug addict that should not be glorified. It makes no sense why people would be willing to spend their hard earned money to go see this man when he is definitely, ‘not winning.’ I don’t support the choices Sheen has made and hope he is given help instead of glory for his actions.
