I don’t know what’s gotten into Charlie Sheen lately – maybe the kind of syphilis that eats your brain? – but he’s been doing some awfully nice stuff lately. Last month, he gave a lot of money to the family of a little girl who’s currently fighting cancer, and this month, he gave a lot of money to another family. You want to know who?
That photographer that died trying to take a picture of Justin Bieber, right? His family is having a tough time raising enough funds for his funeral, because, you know, funerals are stupid expensive. One of the photographer’s friends is also friends with Charlie Sheen, and so Charlie heard that the family was struggling with this. So he wrote them a check for $12,000, and then when someone asked him about it, he gave this statement:
“A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject. It’s an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future. As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved.”
Isn’t that nice? I think that is so nice. Charlie’s a f-cked up dude, but it’s good to know that even f-cked up dudes can take care of business every once in a while.
