Unfollow Charlie Sheen on Twitter Day: Do It for America!

charliesheentwitter.jpg
Even though America loves a shitshow, and has every right to do so, we think this particular shitshow has gone on too long. Watching Charlie Sheen flame out again has been amusing, in part, but, much like his porn stars, we've taken to hiding in the bathroom and cringing. That is to say, we've come to desire a rapid end of our time with him for a number of reasons. Among his crimes:

Yes, watching him is akin watching a trainwreck, and it's hard to pull yourself away from the spectacle. So, fine, keep watching him, preferably in clips from Men at Work and Major League. But the man has 2 million Twitter followers. Isn't enough enough? Can't we all just commit to the itsy bitsy task of unfollowing him? We did. It felt...good. We're pretty sure we won't miss it.

Take this random sampling of @charliesheen mentions. Scary.

Thus, we propose to make this Friday, March 11, Worldwide Unfollow Charlie Sheen on Twitter Day. Think of the message we will send! Power to the people. If Charlie Sheen loses even 5 followers, well, that's 5 followers who won't retweet him. And if we don't care what Charlie Sheen is doing, we will stop talking about him and talk about something else. Anything else. If no one can hear a bitchin' rockstar tweet, does anyone care? Ask yourself that, and then hit "unfollow." It's so easy.

Hey, some people didn't write about Sarah Palin for a month. That's what we call sacrifice. You can at least do this little bit to help humanity.

Also: Apparently it was the best month of their lives.

UPDATE: Charlie Sheen was just fired from his highly successful horrible sitcom. Let this be the incentive you need! Make it a clean break, unfollow! Or take the suggestion of some of our commenters and block. As individuals, we can all make a difference. Hey, here are 15 other people to follow on Twitter. Because we care.

They are clearly setting him up, he's with the movement! I'm not saying he never did any drugs (I'm sure he's not now) or anything like that cuz the in the industry you can get anything and be okay. They use all they know about him to continually ruin his image and make it out way worse than what it is and still benefit from it, people just eat the stuff. Now he's some crazy guy that people are turning away from, shit, people dont just turn crazy like that, maybe the environment is the crazy one. Same thing happened to DMX, Tupac and Micheal look it up!

I never cared to follow Charlie or youtube any of his rants or whatever. I did however choose to follow Charlie right after this article. I don't mind people speaking their mind, partying, running around with women and making money. So what and do you Charlie. I hate media assassinations and haters a lot more.

sooooo....

Beeing successful as an actor and making loads of money from that is not a crime, is it?

Having a respectful amount of narcisism is also not a crime. As well as beeing an epic douchebag.

Ok, having sex with porn stars is unethical but still not a crime.

Doing drugs is a crime but who doesn't.

But beeing Charlie Sheen and having all of the above is definately a crime, so let's all unfollow him on tweeter and give him a lesson....

Duh....Get a life ...

Seriously....get one now before it's too late....

Searching for "Charlie Sheen" on the Village Voice returns over 1870 page hits. If you guys want to lay culpability for the follow Charlie phenomenon, it starts with looking in the mirror.

This is clearly coming from a female's opinion. Charlie Sheen is entertaining to watch and observe because he does not follow orders from anyone. It is understandable why every guys want to be like him

Charlie Sheen should be unfollowed just for the same reason that he has no freakin clue how to use Twitter. 2.5 million followers and no real engagement. What an idiot.

With constant alcoholic benders, and a sex life possibly less discriminating than Sheen's, when you see old Charlie do you ever think, "There but for the lack of funds go I?"

Statistically more men are abused by women than vice versa, but you don't care about that at all do you? Only women have any worth, right?

Your an idiot. You write your "column" because of freedom of speech. Yet, you attempt to block his or tell people who and what they should read. You got your degree online, huh?FYI... you couldn't come up with anything better than "shitshow"? Really?

You have to admit, the man is pure genius! He has taken his own self that would ordinarily be detested and has created his sitcom of being himself while getting to enjoy being the highest grossing actor per episode! He has found a way to not only continue his guilty pleasures without condemnation, but also to become rich and famous for it. I think that I speak for many when I say: doesn't everyone, in some form, want to be Charlie Sheen? (also, gotta give the man props for being on Two and a Half Men. That show is fantastical and quite hilarious!)

Jiggs3791

two and a half men. Charlie is the half, he doesnt even have to act the part he just tones down his life for public t.v. he has done good work in the past but is now a discrase.why is he on my local evening news?are there not more important things going on in the world?we are giving other nations proof that there is such thing as "american trash". where are our priorities. forget him, the way he spends his money he will be a homeless junky in no time.

I am completely on board with this... but for a different reason.

By following him and fueling this nonsense (I'm guilty, too), we are ALL acting as ENABLERS. All 2 million followers may as well be sending him crack rocks and bottles of booze.

I AM SO DISGUSTED BY HIS BEHAVIOR AND THE FACT THAT HE FORGETS HE HAS CHILDREN WHO WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THE AFTERMATH OF HIS SHIT. IS HE SO INTO TO HIMSELF THAT HE FORGOT ABOUT THEM?

What the hell is wrong with our country! Are we so bored with our own lives that we need to enable yet another overpaid actor without a cause. He is seriously ill and is in need of tremendous help. He is endangering his children's lives as well as his own. Why don't they just lock him up? He is a really sick person and if he doesn't get help soon will end up taking his own life!!!

this is just misandrist ranting from Jen Doll. Men, unite! unfollow those feminist hypocrites!

but... i mean, you realize he's done more than that, right? shot a woman, split open another's face so she had to have stitches, threatened other women repeatedly... scared another so badly she locked herself in a closet while he trashed a hotel room, with his children in a room across the hall... i just wonder why you mentioned all those things, but left out the pertinent ones.

I think abuse of men by women is very unreported. Even as a woman I can say that because I've seen it among my male friends. There are women who take advantage of a man whom they know won't hit them back.

Why the rage at somebody you don't even know?

Perhaps Sheen's kids will grow up feeling free to be themselves, just like their father is being true to himself.

Giving a child permission to be themselves is one of the greatest gifts a parent can impart to their children.

Girl "the shot in the arm story" was an accident, yeah maybe hard to believe but even the "victim" said it and right now Kelly Preston still defend Charlie whereas she doesn't need any fame or money (like you could suspect for the many hookers, porn stars, gold-diggers who claimed abuse) from him since she is famous and Travolta's wife.We know only the media coverage of these stories so i think it is foolish to crusify this guy about this personal troubles when we don't really know what is going on..and anyway it is anyway not our business.Watch him if you like what he is doing as an actor, entertainer otherwise don't watch..why wasting your time with these articles or pseudo "unfollow whatever movement" on twitter..I don't understand this need to bash famous people, to obsess about them and whatever they are doing. Don't like don't watch, don't follow, don't talk about it..it is simple.

thesporkgirl
thesporkgirl

same could be said for you reading this article about those who oppose him. just don't read about it, or obsess about what we're doing. and no, i think i'll keep talking about it, seeing as the hundreds of people who claim sheen "never hurt anyone" most of them honestly never heard about how he obviously has, he's admitted it himself, plead guilty, multiple times, across 20 years. "don't talk about it" is foolish advice. it needs to be talked about. it is simple.
