Charlie Sheen - Charlie Sheen: Dave Chappelle Cost Me My Job!
Charlie Sheen has offered up a rather odd explanation of why he suffered a hernia in 2011. Possibly one of the most famous hernias of all time, the accident triggered Sheen's very public meltdown which ended up costing him his job on the hugely successful 'Two And A Half Men' - a role since taken on by Ashton Kutcher.
Many believe that the stomach hernia was a result of drugs, and indeed Sheen did end up going for a spell in rehab. However, in this instance? It wasn't that at all, no it was comedian Dave Chappelle, apparently. "Everybody thought I had OD'd (overdosed) or whatever. No, I had a f**king hernia blow out of my stomach. I called the paramedics, because that's what you do, right?" Sheen explained to Playboy Magazine.
Continuing, he added "It was because of a Dave Chappelle sketch. Remember the scene where he's a blind white supremacist who doesn't know he's black? It's f**king hilarious. I'd never seen it, and I laughed myself into a hernia. That is 100 per cent true. It's his fault. There you go. Dave Chappelle cost me my job." We're sure that Chappelle has never felt prouder. Sheen's new series 'Anger Management' - based on the Hollywood movie of the same name - premieres later this month.
