Charlie Sheen hasn’t been looking so great lately, from his drug induced nights to his crazy talk during interviews and now via his Ustream podcast, many people believe he could end up in the city morgue just as fast as he was fired from Two and a Half Men and it’s for that reason that many news agencies have already written the obituaries they will post the moment Sheen kicks the bucket.
From Reuters to The Associated Press many top news agencies are rumored to have In Memoriam articles about Sheen’s life sitting on the back burner, waiting for immediate publication.
It should be noted that this isn’t a new practice, when Britney Spears went insane for a while back in 2008, The Associate Press had her In Memoriam and obituaries written and ready to go. While the 1990’s saw various agencies preparing an endless cycle of Elizabeth Taylor In Memoriam articles.
According to a CBS insider:
“No one is wishing the worst but as a news organization for us not to be prepared for one of the biggest stories in a long time would be unprofessional.”
Heck even the team at Warner Bros. tried to reach out to Charlie Sheen’s legal team to get him the help he needs:
“..Focus your energies on what no one so far has been able to do: get your client the sustained, rigorous and effective treatment he so urgently needs,” the WB wrote in its plea. “It is clear that [Sheen] has no intention of agreeing to the intensive evaluation and treatment that his condition requires. It is also clear he does not believe he has a problem and that he will continue to conduct himself in a destructive manner.”
