Charlie Sheen tripled down on his response to public outrage after he wished death upon President-elect Donald Trump, brushing off the incident in a second tweet and in a Facebook post.
After the passing of Debbie Reynolds, the actor took to Twitter to ask God if Trump could be next. When he was met with criticism, Sheen responded, tweeting, “The media’s reaction to last night’s tweet, is inanely emblematic of the panoramic timorousness, draped vastly and wantonly, across any and all expressions of hope or joy, that we now dare to publish or impart. [O]h, and by the way, [I] was talking to God, not you.”
Then, he followed up with another tweet, which further dismissed the incident. It features a photo of him and his daughter with the words, “sami: So how was your day dad? dad: well sweetie, it went a little something like this…”
Sheen also reiterated how little he cares about the drama that has ensued by posting an image of a man giving the bird on Facebook, with the words, “When you truly stop caring what the fuck anyone thinks of you, you will reach a whole new level of freedom.”
Despite his attempts to calm the haters, it seems people are still angry about his initial comment, with one Twitter user firing back, “Too bad your daughter has you as an example in her life. At least she knows what NOT to do.”
