If there was a poster-child for the most humorously deranged actor on the face of the planet, then it's pretty safe to say that Charlie Sheen would be the first in line for it.
Sheen, who is perhaps best known for his public meltdown while being fired from the hit TV show "Two and a Half Men", has taken his recent bout of quasi-insanity and turned it into a “winning” strategy.
On Wednesday night, however, “winning” wasn't on the agenda, after he was barred from reentering Staples Center during the L.A. Kings/New Jersey Devils game.
What went down was that Sheen exited the building during the game for a smoke and when he went to go back in, was denied entrance, as per the many posted signs stating that once people exit the building, they are not allowed to return. This policy, according to Michael Roth of AEG, which owns Staples Center was used at "nearly every other venue where tickets are required for entry" is designed for the "safety of fans."
Well, you can imagine how Charlie Sheen took being denied; and if you're a fan of TMZ, then you've probably already seen it.
Sheen went into a predictable profanity laced tirade at the female employee, punctuated by a jab at her intelligence.
What does common sense dictate?" Sheen told the employee.
Apparently, and rightly so, common sense dictated to the employee that she must follow the guidelines set up by her employer and deny Sheen re-entry, which she did. And, according to the TMZ video, she even got in a little profanity of her own into the conversation.
"I don't care who he is," she told the camera.
Roth declined to comment on the employees actions but did state that "We regret that any patron would direct such abusive language at one of our employees."
If there is a bright spot in all this for Sheen, it's that the Kings lost Game 4, 3-1 — meaning that he has at least one more chance to catch some Finals hockey. Hopefully, this time, if he attends, he will take a second to read any posted material.
