Charlie Sheen "half-apologizes" to former Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer for calling him "a traitor and a troll"
Charlie Sheen issued a "half-apology" to his former Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer on Tuesday after calling him "a turncoat, a traitor, a troll," reports People.
"I was in a mood and I threw that out to somebody. I didn’t know they-well I kind of knew they were going to print it. Yeah, I knew they were going to print it. I confuse myself," he told radio station K-EARTH 101. "It’s a little bit of a half-apology. An apol."
Sheen, who was fired from Two and a Half Men after weeks of "ridiculous statements and insults" directed to its producers, added, "The reason I was upset was because I didn’t get a text or a phone call or anything saying, ’Hey, dude, back off, I got your back, or you got my back or there’s a back involved.’"
On Monday, Sheen told E! News, "Like I said, you’re with me, or you’re with the trolls. Obviously he’s (Cryer) with the trolls." He claimed that Cryer issued a statement but did not give him a call. However, E! News reported that Cryer’s rep said the actor would rather not enter the fray, despite E! News’ repeated requests for a statement.
E! News also reported that a source close to Cryer claimed that the former co-stars "have communicated and that Cryer did reach out to Sheen, but that out of respect, Cryer was not going to comment publicly."
