So everybody's all down on Charlie Sheen again, this time for going on a Twitter tirade encouraging his followers to deliver rotten eggs and/or dog poop to an elementary school in protest of the administration's failure to stop his 9-year-old daughter Sam from being bullied. And I've got to say -- it's not often that I find myself in agreement with Charlie Sheen, but as a mom, I get where he's coming from. Maybe the rotten eggs and/or dog poop idea is a little out of hand, but it sounds like his poor kid was being seriously victimized. And what's MORE frustrating, Sheen and ex-wife Denise Richards reportedly had a "number of meetings" with school officials in an attempt to solve the problem, but the bullying continued ... to the point where Sam was getting physically ill.
That's just not okay.
Apparently the bulk of the bullying came from a classmate named Victoria, who teased Sam "relentlessly" about everything from her skin to her hair to, not surprisingly, her dad's "winning" phase. Finally Charlie and Denise pulled Sam out of the school. And considering they tried solving the problem the "right" way, needing to uproot Sam was a move which got a certain dad's tiger blood boiling, hence the following Tweet:
If you have a rotten egg, a roll of toilet paper or some dog s**t, I urge you to deliver it with ‘extreme prejudice’ to the campus run by trolls and charlatans. Make me proud. And if you’re feeling the ‘show and tell’ of it all, smear the s**t to spell one name on the front door: VICTORIA.
Like I said, the rotten egg/poop stuff kinda crosses a line of sorts, but I honestly don't blame Charlie for feeling this strongly about the situation. If somebody was bullying one of my kids to the point of making her or him physically ill, I'd be pretty damn pissed myself.
Can you understand why Charlie Sheen wants to throw dog poop at his daughter's bully?
