Charlie Sheen calls Rihanna ‘the village idiot’

Story Highlight

Charlie Sheen launched a Twitter attack on Rihanna. Of course Rihanna responded.

Charlie Sheen launched a Twitter attack on Rihanna, slating her appearance and calling her ‘a big ol liar’ and ‘the village idiot’, after an apparent restaurant snub.

In an extremely long Twitter post (he had to use the TwitLonger service to fit all 1826 characters in), Sheen explained that after hearing that Rihanna was in the same restaurant as he and his fiancé, he tried to arrange an introduction, but was turned down.

“I sent a request over to her table to introduce my fiancé Scotty to her, as she is a huge fan. (personally I couldn’t pick her out of a line-up at gunpoint).

Well, the word we received back was that there were too many paps outside and it just wasn’t possible at this time” he said.

“At this time? AT THIS TIME??
lemme guess, we’re to reschedule another random
11 million to 1 encounter
with her some other night…?”

Later in the post, the actor ranted that perhaps he and his fiancé were deemed “not KOOL enough to warrant a blessing from the Princess (or in this case the Village idiot)”. He also slated Rihanna’s current look and ‘bad’ pink wig, referring to it as a ‘Halloween’ costume.

Funnily enough, despite saying he “couldn’t pick her [Rihanna] out of a line-up at gunpoint”, Sheen certainly managed to describe her appearance and quote song titles.

Not one to just sit back without reacting, Rihanna of course posted a few messages herself and changed her Twitter banner image to a spoof pic of her signing an autograph for Sheen.



According to one of her ‘Navy’ @Trendeh, Rihanna says she was unaware that Sheen was even in the restaurant and hadn’t been asked if anyone could meet her. He posted an apparent screenshot of her comments online.

We’re guessing we won’t get a full on Sheen rant from Rihanna though as she says her subconscious is telling her to ‘chill’.
