Back in 2011, here's what Sheen had to say about Lorre via People Magazine:
But Sheen saves his strongest words for Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, who recently joked about Sheen. Lorre professed to having a healthy lifestyle and said he'd be mad if Sheen outlived him.
Sheen says he didn't find that funny, calling Lorre a "clown" whose real name is "Chaim Levine." (His name is actually Charles Michael Levine).
"I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that this un-evolved mind cannot process," says Sheen. "I've spent, I think, close to the last decade, I don't know, effortlessly and magically converted your tin cans into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write."
In an interview with TMZ, Sheen continued to blast Lorre as a "stupid, stupid little man and a p----y punk that I never want to be like."
