Charlie Sheen decided after four years to “come forward” on the Today Show this morning to admit he has been living with HIV. He played on the well thought-out, PR-vetted vertical that he was being extorted for millions by “unsavory” characters that are responsible for putting his children’s futures in peril. He came off as incredibly disingenuous and shifty, playing the blame game all throughout. He couldn’t even answer Matt Lauer’s straightforward line of questioning as to how he thought he got the disease. He couldn’t even muster an answer, but adamantly denied the use of “needles.”
The man who is normally quick on the draw for come backs and quips couldn’t come up with an answer? I mean who could EVER predict that a raging alcoholic and drug addict who has unprotected sex with porn stars and hookers possibly get HIV? Hmmm…what. are. the. odds?!
He went on to say he told everyone he has ever slept with about his condition. How so very responsible of him! Was this disclosure mentioned while he free based CRACK off the buttocks off of his harem of sex workers or after? Cause nothing says “responsible disclosure” like four years of back to back obliterated benders.
What a load of GARBAGE?!?!
The whole dog and pony show played out like a carefully calibrated scheme to get in front of whatever is surely around the corner for Charlie Sheen and sway public opinion.
Women who have possibly been unknowingly infected, who will come forward.
Bree Olsen, one of Sheen’s barely legal ex girlfriends, admitted this morning on Howard Stern that she only found out about his condition 3 days ago? Surely she will be burnt at the stake and discredited as the public cannot see past Charlie Sheen the STAHHHHHHHH.
Will others surely to come forward be given the same amount of ‘air time’ to tell their sides of the story? Will all the hookers and ex porn stars be discredited because of their vocation? The same hookers Sheen has seemingly had an unquenchable thirst for since the late 80’s?
This is a reckless cowboy, whose been given free license and even praise for his disturbing behaviour. With this new information, we see clearly that all of his ‘winning’ drug-addled antics were AFTER he got his HIV diagnosis. He’s suddenly labelling the thousands upon thousands of prostitutes he’s enjoyed the services of since the Heidi Fleiss years as unsavory? He brought them all into his fray. HE ALONE, put his children’s emotional well-being, never mind their financial future at risk by his irresponsible and dangerous behavior.
The sympathizers are trying to frame this as the publics stigmatized response to HIV and AIDS? I am in no way trying to shame the terrible disease of HIV?! What I can’t tolerate is Sheen posturing as the new face of HIV, as a victim of others malfeasance and untruths?! That he will hopefully be the impetus for others to come forward, not to be afraid of the HIV stigma?
AM I THE ONLY ONE DROWNING IN THIS OCEAN OF LIES?!?!
If Sheen really cared about helping others and the fight to end the stigma of HIV, he would not have cowered to his alleged extortioners and waited four years to come forward. He would not have spent the last four years of his life post diagnosis in a drug addled sex Bacchanalia haze that would make Caligula blush. Why is *he* suddenly the face of HIV? Magic Johnson, who is living a strong, purposeful life after 20+ years of HIV status can be the face of this terrible disease, (or anyone else for that matter) JUST not Charlie Sheen.
I have zero sympathy for this man and he’s playing all of us, DO NOT buy into what he is selling.
Don’t believe the hype,
