The week Sheen was fired from the set of the long-running CBS show, "Two and a Half Men," he appeared on every cable news or entertainment show that would have him. You couldn't turn on the TV without hearing something ridiculous about tiger blood or winning, a word that has taken on an opposite connotation after Sheen's terrible misuse of it.
Recently, Sheen has taken to the internet to make his money, since TV networks and movie production companies are too smart to hire him. He posts videos on uStream that contain ego-ridden rants that are so overwhelming, even Donald Trump would say, What's with this guy? Sheen went as far as to make a Twitter account during the entire frenzy, and he incurred over one-million followers within 24 hours, a new record.
The Onion is a parody news source that writes fake stories for laughs. Responsible, Thoughtful Nation Decides to Ignore Charlie Sheen parodies the nation's newfound obsession for the story. It should be funny but to me it is just sad. Why do we give so much attention to people that are too ignorant and stupid to deserve it? America is so addicted to train-wrecks that we are giving him exactly what he wants: attention.
