Charlie Sheen meant to say maggot. The Anger Management actor was caught using a homophobic slur over the weekend but Sheen swears it was just an accident.
TMZ reports that Sheen was opening a rooftop bar in Mexico when he used the slur.
The actor, who was trying to rev up the crowd, said:
“How we doing? …. You lying bunch of (gay slur). I said how we doing?”
Sheen later apologized for the offensive comment.
“I meant no ill will and intended to hurt no one and I apologize if I offended anyone … I meant to say maggot but I have a lisp.”
The LA Times reports that Sheen wasn’t the only big name at the Epic Bar on the roof of the El Ganzo hotel in San Jose del Cabo. Slash performed for the crowd while Sheen mingled with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
Sheen took to Twitter to post a picture of himself with the mayor, writing:
“From Boyle Heights 2 Mayor of LA..! …. Antonio Villaraigosa knows how to party!”
Here’s a video of the incident. (Obviously contains offensive language.)
Do you think Charlie Sheen’s comment was offensive? Or was the slur just an innocent slip of the tongue?
