The actor posted a late-night racist tweet about Barack Obama on Thursday, referring to the president as “Barry Satera Kenya” – just the latest rant in the actor’s downward spiral.
Sheen, who suffered an infamous meltdown in 2011 that led to his firing from Two and a Half Men, was apparently upset that the president filled out a bracket for the NCAA basketball tournament, which Obama does every year. “Barry Satera Kenya u won’t attend a soldier’s funeral uhkros da street that u kild yet u hav time 4 brackets? s a d,” Sheen wrote in a rambling message on Twitter.
Sheen came under fire from Twitter users, one of whom posted: “You’re an idiot, misogynist … and racist,” and another who tweeted, “Probably didn’t have to use the word Kenya. Makes ya look like a ‘racist douche’ – invalidates the whole tweet.”
“An astounding number of people stood up for Charlie, as though people should be able to show up to work rarely, if at all, verbally abuse their co-workers publicly with anti-Semitic slurs, get arrested on a regular basis — as well as abuse drugs to the point where they can barely function — and not have their high-paying jobs threatened,” Fox News said Cryer wrote.
