Charlie Sheen rants, seeks revenge over daughter's alleged bullying, school reacts (Poll)
Charlie Sheen is taking on more "trolls," this time, according to the "Anger Management" star, at his child's former school.
The 47-year-old star on Tuesday unleashed a nasty, expletive-filled rant on Twitter that he calls a "legitimate call to arms." He asked people to "deliver" with "extreme prejudice" a "rotted egg," "a roll of toilet paper" or some dog feces to the Los Angeles-area school of his and ex-wife Denise Richard's 9-year-old daughter Sam, saying she was "bullied out" of the facility. He also cites the first name of another girl.
School officials said in a statement on Thursday, March 14, that the facility's "highest priority is the safety, security and education of our students."
They say a parent of a former student who had not attended the school since March of last year has "made certain accusations in the media" and that administrators "first became aware of these accusations last year" and "addressed the issue appropriately at that time."
"Our school takes accusations of bullying very seriously," the message added, saying that for more than 50 years, the facility has "provided a safe and nurturing environment for our students to thrive," and "will continue to do so."
When asked about the actor's comments, a local sheriff's department spokesperson told OTRC.com's parent company, KABC Television: "It's a concern. We've been in contact with the school."
Richards' rep had no immediate comment about Sheen's remarks, made to his some 9.1 million Twitter followers on Wednesday, March 13 -- two years since he was fired from CBS' "Two and a Half Men" and unleashed profanity-laced tirades against its producers, in which he coined phrases such as "tiger blood" and "winning" and referred to himself as a "warlock" and his enemies as "trolls."(Check out a summary of Charlie Sheen's 2011 meltdown as well as a collection of his craziest quotes.)
Sheen, who went on to star in the FX sitcom "Anger Management," echoed similar remarks in his latest rant, saying his daughter's school is "run by trolls and charlatans" and adding: "We will not tolerate this level of abhorrent disrespect towards the child of your favorite Warlock."
"Hashtag HYLMN?" he said at the end of his rant, seemingly referring to the popular 2009 song "How You Like Me Now?" by The Heavy, which was featured in the 2010 film "The Fighter."
Jon Lovitz's Twitter rant
In April 2012, actor Jon Lovitz also used Twitter to bring attention to an issue involving alleged bullying by students -- he Tweeted about a friend who had found feces as well as Nazi symbols and the word "Jew" drawn in maple syrup on their property.
He said the perpetrators were three 14-year-old girls who wanted to "bully" his friend's daughter. The four in question have not talked to the press, but Los Angeles police said they admitted they carried out the acts. They were not charged with a crime.
