article imageCharlie Sheen blames lisp for saying homophobic slur

By Eileen Kersey     Dec 31, 2012 in Entertainment
Charlie Sheen's acting career nosedived as drug and alcohol abuse became part of his daily life. He also became no stranger to controversy. Charlie is back in the news this time for shouting the "faggots" at his bar opening in Mexico.
Charlie Sheen appears to still be a troubled man. Born into a celebrity family, with father actor Martin Sheen a highly successful celebrity, Charlie had a lot to live up to. Money, fame and celebrity perhaps came just that bit too easily to Charlie.
After his health deteriorated in 2011 there were concerns about his mental stability. Physical problems received hospital treatment but reports that Sheen had an addiction problem meant that he had a "mountain to climb"
Charlie was interviewed on mainstream US TV and repeatedly claimed that his drug abuse days were over. In February 2011 Charlie told ABC, I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available because if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body, Since then there have been instances when Mr Sheen has all too often appeared to be high on something other than himself.
Sheen has repeatedly admitted that he was a high octane drug user. In other words he used drugs, big time. In the Summer of 2012 he claimed that he had come to the conclusion that rehab was not for him. Having quit a 12-week programme before its completion he also admitted that he was not alcohol free. He however maintained that he was drug free. 'We live in a country where it’s always Miller Time so what are you going to do? It’s happy hour somewhere in the world.' he told the mailonline. Yes and sadly it shows. 46-year-old Charlie's once good looks have been ravaged over the last two years.
By November 2012 there were reports that Charlie was using drugs again.
On Friday TMZ caught Charlie on camera using an inappropriate ""F" word. It was not one he has used in the past but instead it was "faggots" Mr Sheen was at the opening of a bar in Mexico that he and a partner own. Not a good venture for a man with a alcohol problem, surely.
Taking to the microphone for no apparent reason in particular Charlie shouted into the crowd, "How we doing? ... Lying bunch of f**got a**holes, how we doing?" Since the incident Friday Charlie has tried two tacks as he offered apologies. He claimed that he meant no offense but then again he also claimed that due to a lisp the word maggots came out sounding like faggots.
Whether you believe him or not, and whether you find his "F" word offensive or not is up to you. For sure we are more politically correct than ever and what one person thinks is said in fun can cause offense to others. TMZ actually are now running a poll where you can vote Offensive or Innocent. Sadly there are no other alternatives.
As a Brit my initial reaction was that it was just a funny story. A storm in a tea-cup. However it could of course show that Mr Sheen is far from a stable individual as yet.
Of course if you are gay the term faggot may be offensive to you.
Faggots
in the UK though are a food resembling large meatballs. They are cheap and made of meat off cuts and offal. Whilst they may sound disgusting plenty of Brits still serve, eat and love faggots
