Charlie Sheen blasts Chuck Lorre over teen star's rant
Charlie Sheen has accused Two And A Half Men creator Chuck Lorre of operating a "hive of oppression" after his former co-star Angus T. Jones publicly trashed the hit sitcom.
The 19 year old, who has portrayed Jon Cryer's onscreen son Jake Harper in the comedy since its 2003 launch, hit headlines on Monday after he labelled the series "filth" and pleaded with fans to quit watching in a taped testimony for the Forerunner Christian Church.
Sheen, who was fired from the show after a feud with Lorre erupted last year, admitted after Jones' rant that he believes the programme is "cursed" - and now he has taken aim at his former boss.
He tells TMZ.com, "Obviously, not having been there for some time, the Angus T. Jones that I knew and still love is not the same guy I saw on YouTube yesterday.
"I dare anyone to spend 10 years in the laugh-track that is Chuck Lorre's hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami."
