I said that he was raised by a celebutard and is a second generation celebutard.
That means being exposed to all of the things that you would expect to find in a celebutard household where they have alot of money, alot of far left leaning ideas and enjoyed the 'untouchable' mindset and status that comes from being a celebutard in Hollywood, and add to that that his father was a celebutard activist for far left leaning issues during very permissive decades, and that doubles down on the 'untouchable by the law' mindset.
He had drug issues from his youth, BEFORE his acting career began, admitted to by his father in the midst of one of the many public scandals surrounding his son's drug use, stemming from living the lifestyle where anything goes and they had all the money to pay for it because celebutard parents believe in allowing their offspring to explore the world without boundaries or, apparently, consequences, and unlimited funds.
People in the industry knew that Charlie Sheen had a substance problem but it didn't keep him from getting work and making money. At the height of the firestorm surrounding his drug use he got fired from the very popular Two and a Half Men because he was having issues with Chuck Lorre over his showing up late, stoned and unable to do the work he was hired to do.
DESPITE that open, unabashed issue that Sheen was only too happy to brag about, he landed a HUGE pay raise for his new show. A result of his drug use was getting fired from Two and a Half Men, and then hired to a better paying job, and that's how the timeline went.
Now, I have been very specific about my reasons so I hope that there is no confusion in my meaning.
Can you tell me where I am wrong to see a correlation to the lifestyle he was raised in and then the lifestyle he was living ( one influencing the other, and which apparently nobody had a problem with because plenty of people wanted to hire him with his well documented habits ) and that unabashed illicit lifestyle that garnered the attention was what landed him the higher paying gig than the one he'd gotten fired for from Two and a Half Men?
And that same celebrity lifestyle that Etheridge lives where she has no compunctions breaking the law because she thinks she's cool and toking up with her kids proves she's a cool mom, will have a direct impact on all her children, over 18 and under 12?
Nicole Richie, Drew Barrymore, Alexis Arquette, Tatum O'Neal, Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Penn...
No, there's no correlation between being raised in a celebutard household with unlimited funds, no boundaries and a sense of being above the law that could have a negative influence on kids or that their scandalous lifestyles just creates more interest from the viewing public that translates to getting roles in film and TV that fuels the cycle for more and more of the same until they end up become heroine chic martyrs.
As for Charlie Sheen, the result of being fired for being a drug addicted, hooker collecting, tiger blood infused megalomaniac was a massive pay raise over the job he was fired from for being all of those extremes, and he got to entirely jettison the morals and standard code of conduct clauses removed from his new contract.
Which meant he had fewer rules to ignore as he charges full speed ahead toward that tragic Hollywood legend status.
OK I think I understand better what you meant. The way you worded it originally, I thought you meant the reason
he was rich & famous ("obscene amounts of money") was because
of his hedonistic lifestyle. As though he was poor & unknown before, had no career, no major film or TV roles, no money to speak of, etc, and then as a direct result
of his drugs & alcohol & hookers & such, he suddenly became
rich & famous.
I no longer think that's what you're trying to say. I sure hope not anyway.
