Charlie Sheen is still feuding with Ashton Kutcher, more than two years after the latter actor took over the lead role on Two and a Half Men. The current Anger Management star lashed out at his replacement on Monday in a series of Twitter posts.
Charlie Sheen's first Twitter post featured a picture of Ashton Kutcher alongside Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer. Sheen had nothing but good things to say about Cryer but refused to compliment Kutcher's work on the series.
"hey Jon!!!" Charlie Sheen tweeted. "u r a GENIUS!!! I effin love and MISS YOU old pal! Q; who's your lame side-kik? #NiceTryCanonBoy #CH." Per Daily Mail, "Canon Boy" may be in reference to Kutcher's camera commercials, though he actually works for Nikon, not Canon.
And just in case people thought Charlie Sheen was joking, the actor fired back with another tweet. "hey relax everyone!" Sheen wrote. "read the hash tag! oh and Jon I'm so sorry I insulted your sidekik I meant REALLY lame c."
A few hours later, Charlie Sheen ramped up his feud with Ashton Kutcher. This time, the FX actor referenced Kutcher's old MTV series, Punk'd, which played tricks on famous celebrities.
"hey Ashton sorry bro all good," Sheen continued. "now quit barfing on my old brilliant show. Remember Punk'd? how duz it feel?"
This Charlie Sheen feud with Ashton Kutcher began shortly after the former That 70's Show lead took over the starring role on the hit CBS sitcom. Kutcher replaced Sheen after the latter was fired fromthe series for his bizarre behavior. Shortly after Kutcher's casting, Sheen implied to TMZ that ratings for Two and a Half Men would tank with its new star.
"Enjoy the show America," Sheen said. "Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB." For what it's worth, the most recent new episode of the CBS sitcom managed a 2.2 in the demo, slightly higher than Sheen's prediction.
Still, Charlie Sheen appeared to end his feud with Ashton Kutcher a short time later, tweeting the star congratulations for his new gig. "#Winning Congrats to the cast and crew...CBS & WB..!" Sheen tweeted. "My best to @aplusk !! The show must go on... You got the right guy!"
The feud then heated up in 2012, when Charlie Sheen got in trouble with WB for using Two and a Half Men photos to promote the aforementioned Anger Management. When speaking to TMZ Live about the studio's cease and desist letter, Sheen could not help but get one more dig in at Ashton Kutcher.
"I'm tired of lying," Sheen said. " ... I'm tired of pretending the show doesn't suck ... I'm tired of pretending Ashton doesn't suck."
However, Sheen later claimed that his issue was with the series' writers and not with Kutcher himself. "It's nothing personal," Sheen continued. " ... I just feel bad for him ... he's saddled with such bad writing."
This, in turn, led to another apology in the Ashton Kutcher/Charlie Sheen feud. "Dear Ashton — My bad," Sheen wrote on his personal website. "I was disrespectful to a man doing his best. I got excited and threw you into a crossfire. The rest of my statement I stand behind. You, however, deserve better. Safety in your travels good sir."
