If the social media responses are any indication, the nation reacted to the news that Charlie Sheen has HIV with a collective yawn. This is a man who probably has more germs in his pants than an abandoned port-a-potty.
Knowing his extremely decadent lifestyle of shameless debauchery, chronic drug use and years of sexual promiscuity — which was played out in the blockbuster comedy show “Two and a Half Men” for more than a decade — some people are surprised that his libido doesn’t explode on contact. I mean, this is the guy who almost proud that his name was outed when Hollywood Madame Heidi Fleis’ black book became public knowledge.
So one one seems surprised that it was reportedly revealed by a number of media outlets and blogs that Sheen is not only HIV positive, but that he has known about it and has been living with it for years.
The once prominent movie star — who delivered riveting performances in movies such as Platoon and Wall Street back in the 1980s — is reportedly schedule to appear on the “Today” show in the morning (Tuesday, Nov. 17) to discuss living with the disease, according to tmz.com.
Social media, meanwhile, was not shocked in the slightest. Take a look at their outrageous responses.
Charlie Sheen being HIV positive is the least surprising thing I’ve heard.
