An Unlikely Winner

It's Wacky Wednesday time folks and today I have to admit that maybe I'm the wacko. So how many of you watched the Charlie Sheen interview on The Today Show yesterday where he divulged that he's HIV positive? As I sat down to watch I was fully prepared to make jokes about tiger blood and write this blog full of puns like "no longer winning" and "who's losing now" etc.
 
But as I watched this notorious Hollywood bad boy fully disclose his private health status, and admit his high risk behaviors such as drug addiction and frequent sex with prostitutes, I felt real compassion for the guy. It takes courage to go on national TV to talk about such sensitive issues. But what really got me in "the feels" was when Charlie admitted the reason why he was going public with the news was because people had extorted so much money from him over the years by threatening to expose his condition. He has paid almost $10 million to buy silence from these vultures.  These fucktards are not just taking Charlie's money, they are taking money away from Charlie's children and grandchild. Seriously, anyone who would take a photo of his antiviral meds and threaten to post the pic on social media deserves to be slapped into next week. 

Believe me folks, I nevah thought I would be writing a post in support of Charlie Sheen of all people. But even I have morals, and I don't believe in blackmail when it comes to something as personal as your health. So good for you Charlie for taking the high road. You are winning!

  1. Who would even think to do something like that? Have we really sunk that low as a society? (Sadly, we haven't reached bottom yet - morals and values will only get worse.)

    1. I know right? Yes it was a prostitute who took the pics, but she was paid good money for the job she was hired to do. Now she has made millions in extortion.

  2. I felt bad for the guy, too. It was no surprise he contracted it, with his lifestyle and all, and I've never been a fan of his, but seriously. He didn't deserve to be plucked apart by the vultures who took such advantage of the situation.

  3. Oh wow, no I didn't watch it but that is so sad. Good for him for being honest about it I guess.... I mean he probably didn't really have a choice at this point but to come out but that's sad all the same. People can be so mean and heartless...

  4. It takes a whole different kind of bottom feeding scumbucket to do that to someone.

  5. The only thing that surprises me is he didn't get it sooner. I know his ex-wife said she was scared to death she had it during the divorce.

  7. Wait? He paid ten millions to keep a secret something that everybody knew about? I mean the world didn't even need to guess..... they knew it was him and I think more people would be surprised if he didn't have HIV and whatnotelse. He could've used the money for the research of cures for HIV

  8. I tell you, nothing surprises me anymore about people. Doesn't matter how low they sink.
