That was the joke when the satirical news website the Daily Currant posted a faux story about the actor weighing in on the case of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.
Ford, 44, has admitted to having smoked crack cocaine and buying illegal drugs while in office. Although many of the city's residents have called for his resignation, so far he's refused.
According to the fictional story, when the correspondent asked Sheen about Ford's situation, he hesitated then gave a measured response that quickly devolved into nonsense.
"Ah man, that's a tough question," Sheen supposedly said. "I hate to pass judgement on anybody, especially given my history. But I've been seeing those videos on the news, and I think it's fair to say that Rob Ford parties too much. I can honestly tell you I've never been that high.
"There was this one time in Vegas when I took four Victoria's Secret models and did one gram off each of their bodies within like 45 minutes," he continued. "I declared myself King of Vegas and decided to remodel my hotel room with my bare hands to resemble King Louis XIV's bedroom at Versailles. Knocked down two entire walls, and later had four knuckle surgeries. Still wasn't as high as Rob Ford."
In the story, Sheen also said that Ford should resign from office and seek help.
On Thursday, Sheen posted some presumably real comments to Twitter. His words, written in stanzas, were not so much supporting Ford as they were slamming the media.
"Dear Mayor Rob Ford, the only truth or correct reporting in today's repulsive story regarding my alleged comments about you, is the accurate spelling of your great city," the real Sheen wrote. "Your personal life is and never would be, any of my business. I'm sorry for any grief this may have caused. If I can be of any assistance in any capacity in this media cesspool, please accept the noble offer of my steady hand and compassionate heart. Respectfully, Charlie Sheen."
After all, Sheen wouldn't want anyone to get confused and think the Currant story was real! He's got a reputation to protect.
