Charlie Sheen slammed the recent remarks of Phil Robertson about homosexuality, commenting on Twitpic about the recent Duck Dynasty patriarch’s remarks. Robertson’s remarks will be featured in the upcoming January issue of GQ magazine. Among other remarks, Robertson, 67, equated homosexuality to bestiality. Sheen, who has many friends and acquaintances who are homosexual, roundly denounced Robertson’s anti-gay comments with a few choice words of his own.
Charlie Sheen who starred in Two and a half Men and currently stars in Anger Management, apparently considered Phil Robertson’s remarks to be non-winning ones.
Sheen wrote his reply to Robertson’s supposedly biblical-based anti-gay remarks Saturday on Twitpic. Sheen said, among many other things, that the Duck Dynasty star was a “shower dodger” and that he was “the only surviving brain donor I’ve ever known.” Charlie Sheen added that Robertson needed “to make serious amends to those you have radically offended.”
Charlie Sheen is no stranger to “offending” people, so he should, presumably, know an offensive remark when he hears or reads one. He had many friends who were offended by Phil Robertson’s remarks, so Sheen wanted to stick up for them.
Displaying perhaps a bit of the anger that Charlie Sheen counsels against having in the television series Anger Management, he also stated that it was a “miracle” that Robertson had “a job outside of dirt-clod stacking.”
A&E has suspended Phil Robertson for an indefinite period of time following the ongoing backlash against the Duck Dynasty star’s controversial comments.
Phil Robertson’s remarks have gotten widespread publicity, most of it condemning his anti-gay slurs. Robertson said that homosexuality is a sin, and “sin: it’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.” He also remarked to GQ that, “as a man,” he considers a woman’s vagina to “be more desirable that a man’s anus.”
However, Phil Robertson is not without his share of supporters, like former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who stand up for Robertson’s First Amendment right to free speech.
Palin and others might be correct in saying that Robertson is exercising his use of free speech, but IMHO that does not mean that the people who are condemning Robertson’s remarks are also motivated by hatred, as Palin seems to suggest when in a Facebook post she called them and their feedback: “intolerants’ hatin’.”
She also wrote that the people who were criticizing Phil Robertson “for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.”
The Robertson family is standing behind Phil Robertson and his right to freedom of speech and have stated that they will not continue on with Duck Dynasty if Phil is not a part of it. The future of Duck Dynasty is now unclear, but at least for now, the Robertson family are unified and are sticking together.
Charlie Sheen definitely expressed his own right to freedom of speech by calling Phil Robertson “Mallard brained” and writing on Twitpic that Phil Robertson had an “army of scabies and bull weevils sequestered deep” within his beard.”
