Charlie Sheen has some words for Brian Williams. In light of the recent scandal that had Williams suspended for six months from NBC News for lying about his involvement in an incident in Iraq, Sheen posted an open letter on Twitter that called Williams a “hero.” He also said Williams was the victim of a “witch hunt.”
Dear Mr. Williams, Sorry to bother you during this most surreal, unjust and mercurial moment in your awesome… http://t.co/3yzNU5JqL8

Variety posted the full text of Sheen’s letter, noting that the actor lost his job on Two and a Half Men because of his “unruly” behavior. “
“Dear Mr. Williams, Sorry to bother you during this most surreal, unjust and mercurial moment in your awesome life.
First off, THANK YOU, for 24 years of inimitable professionalism and top shelf brilliance, as a stone cold passion driven and (PERFECTLY) fact based journalist.
Secondly, Thank you ‘squared’ for delivering not only the news on a nightly basis, (PERFECTLY) to myself and my family. But for every other person alive, (with a TV) who relied and still do,on your poetic, insightfuland NOBLE sacrifices,that made our longest nights shorter,and our shortest nights safer. You good sir, are a hero in my ‘Entire Library’
Lastly; you are clearly the victim of a transparent and vile witch hunt! Erroneously ‘staged’ by hooligans, non coms, cowards and oligarchs, [whose] only desperate and hideous goal is to discredit the genius that they relied on for almost 3 decades!
Now and forever you are a true Patriot and a Hero of mine until the day [I] leave this star crossed imperfect Rock we call Earth…
Mr W: respect love hi 5’s and refuge! (if you need it!) I remain humbly and on dangerous standby at your service….
Sheen’s letter is only the most recent of a series of personal notes he has posted to his Twitter feed. A few weeks back, he sent out kudos to actor James Franco.
Dear Mr. Franco, u r a stone cold genius. I’ve watched “TheInterview” 8 times!! best comedic work I’ve ever seen! yur #1 fan, C Sheen. — Charlie Sheen (@charliesheen) January 20, 2015
He also apologized to Kim Kardashian after a Twitter rant.
Sheen’s public letter comes just over a week before the series finale of Two and a Half Men. Since the show’s end was announced, there has been much speculation over whether Sheen will return for a cameo. Sheen expressed his interest in coming back.
Last week, People reported that CBS gave a strong hint that Sheen, or his character Charlie Harper, will have a part in the Two and a Half Men finale set for February 19. The hour-long episode is called, “Of Course He’s Dead – Part One and Part Two.” Sheen’s character was killed off four years ago.
CBS has said only that the show will have “surprise guest stars.”
