He said what?

Yes...just when you think that celebs would learn from other celebs dumb mistakes...along comes another to take their place. In an age where media, web 2.0, and tech rules....someone, somewhere will catch their transgressions and post it to youtube, facebook, myspace...or like about it. The winner of this week's "He Said What Award" is: Charlie Sheen. The ironic part of this whole story is that Charlie wasn't even caught by the paparazzi; it was his own ex-wife, Denise Richards, that outed him. It seems that Charlie left a nasty voicemail 3 and a half years ago on his exe's vm, in which he pulled out...the n-word. Seriously. Why? What ever happened to just using the word b*tch? I'm not condoning swearing, but why, why, why resort to derogatory racial epithets. What makes this act even more deplorable is the mere fact that Tony Todd, an African -American actor, served as his BEST MAN at his first two weddings. What could he possibly say that would condone his ignorant rant? NOTHING. Just like my great-grandma used to say: "You reap what you sow."
