Charlie Sheen Posts Racist Rant Attacking Obama

Charlie Sheen doesn't think the president should have time for brackets.

Published March 19, 2015

Actor Charlie Sheen definitely isn't winning. On Thursday, he posted a racist tweet attacking President Obama for, of all things, engaging in a little March Madness.

After the president appeared on ESPN's SportsCenter to fill out his NCAA tournament bracket, which has become an annual tradition, Sheen lost it.

"Barry Satera Kenya u won't attend a soldier's funeral uhkros da street that u kild yet u have time 4 brackets? Sad c," the tweet read.

Sheen was referring to the funeral of Major Gen. Harold Greene, who was killed while serving in Afghanistan. Although then-Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel attended the funeral service, some conservative media outlets began spreading a myth that the White House didn't send any representatives to the two-star general's funeral, Media Matters reports. The lie was in response to news that three administration officials would be attending Michael Brown's funeral.

Sheen's rant elicited a number of humorous tweets in response that offered advice and warnings to not drink the bong water, to lay off of the cocaine, and perhaps most important, to stop being a racist.
