The star of television’s top-rated sitcom, Charlie Sheen has some unexpected free time on his hands following an incendiary rant on radio. The star of Two and a Half Men turned the air waves blue during a radio interview on Thursday, February 24, with host Alex Jones in which Sheen blasted "Two and a Half Men" executive producer Chuck Lorre, who is Jewish, and was born Charles Levine.


CBS and Warner Bros. Television said they are ending production on the show for the season. The decision was based on the "totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition," the companies said in a joint statement Thursday.


In his interview with Jones, Sheen, calling from the Bahamas, ridiculed Lorre in an attack, mocking his Jewish name.


"There's something this side of deplorable that a certain Chaim Levine -- yeah, that's Chuck's real name -- mistook this rock star for his own selfish exit strategy, bro. Check it, Alex: I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his unevolved mind cannot process," Sheen said.


"Last I checked, Chaim, I spent close to the last decade effortlessly and magically converting your tin cans into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write," he said.


Sheen also made fun of Alcoholics Anonymous, calling it a "bootleg cult" with a 5 percent success rate, compared to his own "100 percent" success rate.


Sheen, however, did not go silent after the CBS and Warner announcement.


In an open letter posted on the TMZ website Thursday, Sheen went on to call Lorre a "contaminated little maggot" and wished the producer "nothing but pain."


Lorre had no comment.
