Charlie Sheen trainwreck takes to Twitter

The glorious, cocaine-fueled chaos that is Charlie Sheen has officially joined Twitter. This momentous marriage of modern technology and good ol’ self-destruction occurred on Tuesday, at about 5pm EST. By 5:08pm, the Twitter-verified account had already reached 10,000 followers. An hour later, it had reached 100,000.

This morning, @CharlieSheen is well above 720,000 followers. And that number will probably seem antiquated by the time you read this. Sheen’s custom hashtag, #Tigerblood is the top trending term in the US, at the time of this writing. He has posted 12 tweets since he joined.

One of those tweets, posted at around 1am EST, reads: “My sons’ are fine… My path is now clear… Defeat is not an option..!” That optimistic little number was posted just after police removed Sheen’s twin sons, 2-year-olds Bob and Max, from the porn star-loving actor’s Los Angeles, California, home. So that’s nice.

Not to be confined to a simple 140 characters, Sheen has also been utilizing TwitPic, having posted pictures with three out of his 12 tweets. One picture shows Sheen with porn star Bree Olson, each holding their favorite beverage. Another is of Sheen holding a painting (?) of an Academy Award statue with Sheen’s face on it, which reads “Oscars 2011.” And the last is of Sheen’s arm and hand, adorned with watch and ring.

In case you missed it: Sheen has been in the news constantly since the end of January, when he was hospitalized (for a hernia) after a “wild” 36-hour cocaine binge with five porn stars.

Following that rock star-level debacle, episodes of Sheen’s show, “Two and a Half Men,” were cancelled, leaving the future of the series in limbo, all due to a controversial CBS radio interview during which Sheen made disparaging remarks about the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre.

Since then, Sheen has been on a ranting rampage, having appeared on both “The Today Show” and ABC’s “Good Morning America” to further discuss his CBS interview, and his unquenchable hunger for drugs and porn stars.

Now, it appears his rants will continue on Twitter, where the entire world can witness the completely awesome disintegration of a Hollywood legend. Win, Charlie. Just win.

Deadpool & Wolverine: Everything we know about the film formerly known as Deadpool 3
DEadpool and Wolverine stand next to each other in Deadpool & Wolverine.

In retrospect, we should have suspected that Deadpool & Wolverine wouldn't keep its most famous co-star out of the title. In 2022, Ryan Reynolds coaxed Hugh Jackman into reprising his role as Wolverine for the first time since 2017's Logan. Once that happened, the name Deadpool 3 didn't fully convey how monumental this film would be.

So Marvel Studios has officially retitled it as Deadpool & Wolverine. Jackman has also humorously rebranded the film as Wolverine & [expletive], which would make this R-rated flick a lot harder to market!

Everything you need to know about The Last of Us season 2
Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal in The Last of Us.

Video game adaptations have failed to live up to the expectations of gamers for decades. That's why it's so refreshing that HBO's The Last of Us not only captures the spirit of the game that inspired it, but the show also stands as a work of art in its own right. This series has completely redefined what a video game adaptation can be, largely thanks to the showrunners, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. Mazin previously created the critically acclaimed Chernobyl miniseries for HBO, while Druckmann co-created The Last of Us video game franchise.

Fans will have to wait at least another year for The Last of Us season 2 to arrive. But now that the show is inching closer to restarting production, we can share everything we know about The Last of Us season 2. Next season, the series continues the story of Joel and Ellie while also introducing some important characters from the second game, The Last of Us Part II.
Who's coming back for The Last of Us season 2?
