    “Moral Turpitude? Moi?”

    By kyle | March 8, 2011

    I was wondering how Warner Brothers would get around to firing Charlie Sheen. It turns out “moral turpitude” is the best they could do; but I doubt “ranting like a nutjob” is cited in his contract as a nullifying option. It seems it took the finest minds in the Warner Bros. legal department a couple of weeks to come up with…not much. They didn’t really have a choice, but I suspect Sheen will win a hefty settlement, not to mention rebounding with a reality show that it will be pretty hard not to watch. Suggested title: “A Drug Called Charlie Sheen.” “Retarded Zombies” might be a little too off-topic. Wouldn’t it be fun if the Warners-Sheen dispute actually made it to court? It would make the Michael Jackson trial look like a routine SEC filing.

      It looks like Jon Cryer is doomed. Charlie Sheen will never help him in his career. In fact, Sheen will probably try to destroy his career. Poor guy.

      Carlos Estevez was a section 8 long before this diatribe. You need to listen to him talk about 9/11 conspiracy theories that make Rosie O’Donell blush.
