Open letter to the internet [Mar. 8th, 2011|12:01 pm]
M. McGregor

My dearest internet,

I know you're desperate for the next big meme to make your life worth living, and I understand that you're deeply interested in watching people's personal lives crumble into dust right before your very eyes, but I was kind of hoping you'd draw the line with this Charlie Sheen nonsense. Call me crazy, but I don't find it at all amusing or hilarious to watch a man who should be in jail for domestic abuse flaunt his insanity.

Charlie Sheen held a knife to his wife's throat and threatened to kill her, but he's famous, so he doesn't go to jail. Or she's a gold digger, so she deserves it.

That's not funny. He's not funny. His mental state is not funny. This entire thing is sad, and the more you giggle and twitter over every insane thing he says, the less serious it becomes. Charlie Sheen's life is not a joke, it's a tragedy; not for him, but for the people around him.

But hey, we love a good trainwreck, don't we? I can't wait to retweet the next crazy thing he says!

M. McGregor, the living legend (so dreamy!)

From what I've been seeing and hearing about him - I have to wonder if he's had some kind of psychotic break driven by an organic problem in his brain. I feel more sorry for the man, than amused by him.

i agree, untill just now i didnt know what he had done (wikipidia showed something about children and asking for a payrise for 2 & 1/2 men)

but yeah, threatning people with knives is not cool or funny.

a rather stupid friend of mine liked to play with knives, he ended up slashing his brothers hand open by accident, the poor guy almost bled out before they got him to hospital...


lets talk about O.J simson, wasnt he such a nice guy?


i have always hated celeb culture, it just seems to ruin the lives of everyone who gets any fame at all,

although i am waiting till someone gets pix of justin bieber passed out on crack in a allyway

(its only a matter of time.)

I agree that the situation is equal parts sad and infuriating. He's clearly quite sick, so that's sad. And just as clearly, there's no reason for a guy who should be in jail to take up so much attention when vital fights for democracy are happening all over the damn place.

I would say, though, that some of his lines are pretty amazing lines. If they were said by some fictional character in a book or movie, they would be pretty quote worthy.
