Charlie Sheen has waded into the controversy surrounding Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson with a long rant on social media site TwitPic in which the actor calls the Duck Commander “Mallard-brained” and a “shower dodger”.
Phil Robertson, 67, was placed on indefinite hiatus from the A&E reality show after anti-gay comments made during GQ magazine interview.
“Your statements were and are abhorrently and mendaciously unforgivable,” said Charlie Sheen in comments published Saturday.
“You are now in the crosshairs of a MaSheen style media beat down.”
Charlie Sheen was fired from the hit CBS show Two and a Half Men in 2011 amid ongoing issues with substance abuse and allegations of domestic violence.
The actor is the latest prominent person to weigh in with reaction to Phil Robertson’s comments. In recent days, Phil Robertson has drawn support from Sarah Palin and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, while being attacked by gay rights group GLAAD, and losing connections with Cracker Barrel.
In light of Phil Robertson’s suspension from Duck Dynasty, the fifth season of which begins January 15, the Robertson family is reportedly considering walking away from the series, to which A&E has exclusive rights.
