Charlie Sheen has taken to Twitter to bid farewell to the TV reboot Roseanne after ABC cancelled the series.
â€śAdios Roseanne! Good riddance,â€ť Charlie tweeted on Tuesday. â€śHashtag NOT Winning. The runway is now clear for OUR reboot.â€ť
He finished off the tweet by adding the hashtag #CharlieHarperReturns and included a picture of a script from his previously successful series, Two and a Half Men.
Charlieâ€™s erratic behavior, including calling the showâ€™s creator, Chuck Lorre, a â€ścontaminated little maggot,â€ť led to his dismissal from the long-running CBS comedy, with Ashton KutcherÂ then taking over in a new role as his replacement. Charlieâ€™s character, Charlie Harper, was killed off twice â€” once by being thrown in front of a train, and then again when a helicopter dropped a piano on him.
Charlieâ€™sÂ Two and a Half MenÂ co-star Jon Cryer retweeted hisÂ Twitter post and added the tongue-in-cheek message: â€śWhat could go wrong?â€ť
ABC cancelled Roseanne on Tuesday following a racist tweet by star Roseanne Barr, suggesting that former Obama advisor Valerie Jarett is the offspring of the â€śMuslim Brotherhood & planet of the apes.â€ť
After receiving serious backlash from the public, celebrities, and even her own co-stars, Roseanne deleted the tweet and has since apologized for the â€śbad joke.â€ť She also released another now-deleted tweet in which she blamed the sleeping aid Ambien for her racially charged comment.
â€śIt was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting â€“ it was memorial day too â€“ I went 2 far & do not want it defended â€“ it was egregious Indefensible,â€ť the tweet read. â€śI made a mistake I wish I hadnâ€™t butâ€¦ donâ€™t defend it please.â€ť
Drug company Sanofi, which produces Ambien, responded to Roseanneâ€™s claim with a tweet Wednesday morning: â€śWhile all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.â€ťÂ ~Caitlyn Clancey
