Charlie Sheen has been all over the place the last couple of weeks. The guy’s public meltdown has become a national obsession. Among all his crazy rants, there is one thing he said that few people picked up on: He admitted publicly that he is Latino. He was denying claims that he was an anti-Semite for calling his boss Charlie Lorre, Chaim Levine in an interview. Charlie said he was simply referring to Lorre by his real name. He then said: “So you’re telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?”
We all know that his father felt he had to change his name from Ramon Estevez to Martin Sheen. The thing is, unlike his dad and brother Emilio, Charlie has never acknowledged the fact that he is Latino. Until now. When he is having an alleged coke fueled self-immolation of insanity, that’s when he decides to embrace his heritage. When he’s at his maximum level of embarrassing. Thanks, dude. <- Sarcasm.
As designated spokesmen for Latino men, we would like to invite Charlie to re-enter the Latino denial closet. He can keep Cameron Diaz, Christina Aguilera, and Jessica Alba company.
