Charlie Sheen shouts gay slur at club opening, then apologizes

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Lasher (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Fox-NY Post

The cringe-inducing antics of Charlie Sheen got ugly over the weekend when he berated the audience at his new lounge in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with an anti-gay epithet.

Sheen had been trying to warm up the crowd of the Epic Bar in the swanky El Ganzo Hotel, TMZ reported, when he shouted, “How we doing . . . Lying bunch of f----t a--holes. How we doing?”

“You guys suck!” Sheen added.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was in the crowd, as was Slash, the Guns N’ Roses guitarist, who was performing.

1. the bad boy we love of misogyny, and homophobia and truth be told, probably racist.

the white privilege we embrace.

it is generally all wrapped up in three's.

but... he is just our bad boy we love.

9. i do not know who he is, but if he is homophobic and a misogynist, then yes

he is probably racist also. and if he is latino by name and you are suggesting he could not possibly be racist because of that, you would be wrong. but ALL of this is a guess, cause as i said.... clueless who he is and really do not care.

12. Charlie Sheen is his stage name... Carlos Irwin Estévez is his real name...

That said, being born a descendant of Irish and Spanish paternal grandparents does not necessarily make him immune to racism. It was his brother, after all, who chose to keep the Estévez name, while he, as his father Martin, chose to use the stage name, Sheen.

13. Carlos Estevez is Ramon Estevez's third son

Charlie Sheen is also a major AIDS activist (he's an AFA Angel Award winner) and donates millions to charities

So maybe before you call him a homophobic racist for saying a bad word at one event, you should do some research on the man first

I'm just sayin'

19. he is clearly a misogynist, and yes the statement he made was homophobic.

the comment i made about racism is not stating he IS a racist, just that it is likely, as the three generally follow together.

so, before you accuse me of something i have not done, maybe you ought to re read my post.

i did not state he was a racist, but that in all likelihood, he was also racist, folloing along the lines of misogyny and homophobia.

make a homophobic comment and do not expect not to be called out on it.

the easy solution? do not make a homophobic comment.

and good that the man does aid charity. glad to hear it. then shame on him, even more, for being aware of the issue and still resorting to a homophobic comment.

20. And yet it somehow eludes you that he immediately apologized for the remark??

Look, Charlie Sheen is a wife-beating, alcoholic and drug addict..........but if you even bothered to look a little bit into his life, you would see that your implication of racism and homophobia are completely off base.

If you're going to bash the man, bash him for real reasons, and don't make up shit out of thin air.......like TMZ & FOX obviously does...............

You do know that there are plenty of Neo-Nazis and racists in Latin America and Spain don't you? He's Spanish and Scottish, both white European countries. His name doesn't mean shit.

28. I thought he was Irish.

The Spanish would be surprised that their Moorish and Arab heritage is being disregarded, too! The Alhambra didn't appear by magic, after all...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alhambra

...After being allowed to fall into disrepair for centuries, the Alhambra was "discovered" in the 19th century by European scholars and travelers, with restorations commencing. It is now one of Spain's major tourist attractions, exhibiting the country's most significant and well known Berber Islamic architecture, together with 16th-century and later Christian building and garden interventions. The Alhambra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the inspiration for many songs and stories.

Moorish poets described it as "a pearl set in emeralds," in allusion to the colour of its buildings and the woods around them. The palace complex was designed with the mountainous site in mind and many forms of technology were considered. The park (Alameda de la Alhambra), which is overgrown with wildflowers and grass in the spring, was planted by the Moors with roses, oranges and myrtles; its most characteristic feature, however, is the dense wood of English elms brought by the Duke of Wellington in 1812. The park has a multitude of nightingales and is usually filled with the sound of running water from several fountains and cascades. These are supplied through a conduit 8 km (5.0 mi) long, which is connected with the Darro at the monastery of Jesus del Valle, above Granada.

Despite long neglect, willful vandalism and some ill-judged restoration, the Alhambra endures as an atypical example of Muslim art in its final European stages, relatively uninfluenced by the direct Byzantine influences found in the Mezquita of Córdoba. The majority of the palace buildings are quadrangular in plan, with all the rooms opening on to a central court; and the whole reached its present size simply by the gradual addition of new quadrangles, designed on the same principle, though varying in dimensions, and connected with each other by smaller rooms and passages. The Alhambra was extended by the different Muslim rulers who lived in the complex. However, each new section that was added followed the consistent theme of "paradise on earth". Column arcades, fountains with running water, and reflecting pools were used to add to the aesthetic and functional complexity. In every case, the exterior was left plain and austere. Sun and wind were freely admitted. Blue, red, and a golden yellow, all somewhat faded through lapse of time and exposure, are the colors chiefly employed.

30. No they wouldn't

Not all Spaniards have Moore blood in them, I certainly don't. Anyhow it doesn't matter, anyone arguing that you can't be racist with a Spanish surname is an idiot.

31. Well, Michael Moore would have to have been very busy were that the case!

The Moorish heritage isn't something that most who know history will deny, any more than the Arab heritage. Have you been back to the homeland lately? You might be surprised at how multicultural it is.

You also might be interested in a Dale Carnegie course or offer up a New Year's resolution--calling people idiots here on DU is hardly the way to fire up your new year in a positive fashion, or win friends and influence people.

26. are you suggesting hispanics can't be racist?

i don't know if Sheen is, but my personal experience, and basic common sense, suggests that it is very possible for hispanics to be racist.

7. I love his father....

Charlie, by contrast is a drug-addled disappointment, given he once had some demonstrable talent (Platoon). That, like his teeth, long sense disappeared, due to the cumulative effects of drugs, narcissism, and self-loathing.

Some drunk ass shouts insults, apologizes a minute later.

Thank you TMZ for putting this on the national agenda today, and to FOXNEWS for the further distribution, and thank god it's LBN on DU!

29. I guess when men of a certain age get up in a club and yell slurs, it's like a

Paris Hilton or one of those Kardashians "accidentally" (oops! tee hee! Ohhhh noooo, hee hee!) letting a "sex tape" get out on the internet...?

There's fame and there's infamy, and nowadays they both can earn a past-prime individual a few more paydays.

22. I think he holds an official record for shouting gay slurs and then apologizing more than any other

human, out placing Chuck Hagel in this year's very tight competition both for frequency of slur and swiftness of apology.

A: Enough to kill Two and a Half Men.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
