Charlie “Dental Hygiene is Important” Sheen refuses to back away from his controversial race-based tweet about President Obama from earlier this week–and he’s not afraid to talk about it, either. Sheen took to Twitter to express frustration, even outrage, with Obama’s most recent NCAA basketball tournament bracket. And not just because Sheen is a die-hard Cincinnati fan, though Obama has the Bearcats losing to Kentucky in the second round. Here’s the tweet, in its garbled entirety:
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 c http://t.co/KM1in5MPio

The Tweet drew criticism from all corners; the Telegraph of London went so far as to link it to Sheen’s cocaine use and “spectacular fall from grace” in recent years. Surprisingly, when asked for further comment, Sheen said it was Obama’s bracket, and not the cocaine, that made him insane. Check the video:
In related news, Sheen’s Two And A Half Men co-star Jon Cryer has a new book coming out. So That Happened will be on bookshelves next month, and it contains some tasty information about Sheen’s meltdown years. Among the juiciest bits? Sheen had Cryer stash a porn collection in his trailer, mentored Cryer on how to talk to hookers, and texted with Cryer while he (Sheen) took his children to see Mary Poppins on Broadway, left early, and destroyed a hotel room with a porn star.
What do you, the viewers at home, think? Does Sheen’s Tweet go too far? Does he have a point? Should we all give a little more–and take a little less?
