Ashton Kutcher finally responded to Charlie Sheen's endless rants pertaining to "Two and A Half Men" following his exit this week.
Sheen was fired from CBS's comedy in 2010 following a public meltdown that included the actor's feud with "Men" creator, Chuck Lorre. As a result, Sheen was replaced on the show by Kutcher, but the 48-year-old actor has not accepted the change quietly. Over the past two years, Sheen has berated Kutcher, Lorre and "Men" co-star Jon Cryer with comments during interviews and offensive posts to Twitter, and now, Kutcher has a message for the star.
"Dude, shut the ---- up," Kutcher yelled during his appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Wednesday, Feb. 5 after the show's host asked about Sheen. "Seriously, like, enough already. It's three years later and you're still blowing me up on Twitter? Come on dude, really?"
Sheen was fired from "Men" after his longstanding battle with drugs and alcohol abuse, which caused delays in the show's production as well as dissatisfaction among the cast and crew. During Wednesday's telecast, Kimmel cited the "Men" cast and crew who previously were forced to work with Sheen's antics.
"Every day when you go to work, do they say, 'Thank you for not being Charlie,'" Kimmel quipped.
"I'm trying to, like, skew towards where Charlie was at when he left," Kutcher replied, laughing. "I'm just trying to, like, edge in that direction."
Shortly after Kutcher's appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel," Sheen responded to the message.
"Ashton, message received," Sheen wrote on Twitter on Thursday, Feb. 6. "So sorry. U sounded like me! Well done! My bad, I was p***** at other c*** & took it out on you. Hope u r good. Xox. C"
However, in true Sheen fashion, the actor added a more menacing message: "But news flash, dood, you ever tell me to shut the ---- up, EVER again, and I'll put you on a hospital food diet for a year. C #YaFeelMe Jr?"
Sheen's most recent comments surrounding "Men" included him blasting Kutcher for "barfing" on "his show." The actor's jabs also include saying that Kutcher "sucked" during a live interview in Feb. 2012.
"I'm tired of lying. I'm tired of pretending the show doesn't suck," he said during an interview with TMZ. "I'm tired of pretending Ashton doesn't suck. It's nothing personal."
Shortly thereafter, Sheen posted a backhanded apology on his website, writing: "Dear Ashton- my bad. I was disrespectful to a man doing his best."
