Charlie Sheen refuses to apologise for that Donald Trump ‘death’ tweet

"I was talking to God, not you"

Carl Kinsella

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Charlie Sheen over the years, it’s that the man has absolutely no fear of controversy.

The actor caught quite a backlash yesterday for a tweet that rather emphatically prayed for the death of US President-elect Donald Trump.

Acknowledging that 2016 has been a rather horrific year for celebrity death, the Platoon actor offered a prayer that many people took to be in bad taste:

Rather than apologise, Sheen has launched a riposte unto his critics  — singling out the media for a sharp dressing down.

“The media’s reaction to last night’s tweet is inanely emblematic of the panoramic timorousness, draped vastly and wantonly, across any and all expressions of hope or joy that we now dare to publish or impart.”

“Oh, and by the way, I was talking to God, not you.”

Well that clears that up.
