Charlie Sheen Rips NBC, Calls Brian Williams a ‘Hero’ in Open Letter

Brian Williams’ suspension from NBC News has ignited a firestorm of opinions on both TV and the Web. Now, Charlie Sheen, who was famously kicked off CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” for unruly behavior, has weighed in on the Iraq controversy, calling the news anchor a “victim of a transparent and vile witch hunt” and blasting the “cowards” at NBC for benching him in a new letter posted to Twitter.

Read the full letter below:

Dear Mr. Williams,
Sorry to bother you during this most surreal, unjust and mercurial moment in your awesome life.

First off, THANK YOU, for 24 years of inimitable professionalism and top shelf brilliance, as a stone cold passion driven and (PERFECTLY) fact based journalist.

Secondly, Thank you “squared” for delivering not only the news on a nightly basis, (PERFECTLY) to myself and my family.
But for every other person alive, (with a TV) who relied and still do,on your poetic, insightfuland NOBLE sacrifices,that made our longest nights shorter,and our shortest nights safer.
You good sir, are a hero in my “Entire Library”

Lastly; you are clearly the victim of a transparent and vile witch hunt! Erroneously “staged” by hooligans, non coms, cowards and oligarchs, who’s only desperate and hideous goal is to discredit the genius that they relied on for almost 3 decades!

Now and forever you are a true Patriot and a Hero of mine until the day i leave this star crossed imperfect Rock we call Earth…

Mr W: respect love hi 5’s and refuge! (if you need it!) I remain humbly and on dangerous standby at your service….

I am;
the MaSheen….
