Charlie Sheen Rant: Staples Center Gives Him the BootBy: WebProNews Staff - June 8, 2012
Charlie Sheen rant: Is anyone really surprised at this point when the former “Two and a Half Men” star completely blows his cool? Despite the fact that Sheen claims he regrets his actions following his infamous, widely-publicized meltdown, the actor is apparently at it again, directing his misplaced rage at a Staples Center employee who barred him from re-entering the venue on Thursday. The kicker: TMZ got the whole thing on video. Obviously.
Sheen, who had stepped outside to smoke a a quick cigarette, attempted to return to his seat once the deed was done. Unfortunately, he didn’t notice the posted signage about leaving the venue, and the female security guard on-duty refused to let him back in. At first, Sheen attempts to reason with the guard, that is, until he realized that she wasn’t going to budge. In true Sheen fashion, he unleashed an epic stream of expletives.
“You know what? F**king blow my balls, alright, you f**king asshole,” he shouted before heading back to the parking lot. Once there, he used a nearby paparazzo to express his displeasure with the whole scenario. “Have common sense and common courtesy gone in society? That was what I was trying to impress upon her.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, the Staples Center defends their employee’s decision to bar Sheen from re-entering the venue, claiming the system is in place for the “safety of fans”.
Michael Roth of AEG, the company that owns the Staples Center, says there are signs posted inside and outside that warn patrons that they cannot re-enter the building once they’ve stepped outside. He added that there are areas inside the venue for smokers.
“We regret that any patron would direct such abusive language at one of our employees,” Roth explained.
