Charlie Sheen’s publicist is a miracle worker. At this point last year, there was likely no amount of money that could convince someone to represent Charlie Sheen – the man was a self-made wreck and insisted on keeping it that way with one asinine action or comment after another. However, with his new show Anger Management off to a great start in the ratings and his comeback efforts well underway, Sheen seems to be doing the impossible – winning people back over.
The first smart move in his efforts to win back public favor was to quit Twitter. Sheen was a known Twitter addict who never hesitated to tweet what was on his mind – which is also what frequently got him in trouble. By cutting out that direct link into the twisted caverns of Sheen’s brain, he can more easily create a public image of guy with his act together.
Now, Sheen has really stepped up his game and has given the largest donation from a single person ever to the United Service Organizations Inc. The 46-year-old former (?) trainwreck publically announced this week that he will donate 1% of his personal profits from Anger Management to the USO. This guarantees a donation minimum of $1 million with the potential for much more and no price cap.
The move is brilliant, as it encourages people to watch his new show and promote it as a means of also supporting the USO; the more successful Sheen’s show is, the more money he gets, which in turns means a larger donation for the USO.
“The USO would like to thank Charlie Sheen for his very generous $1 million donation to our Operation Enduring Care Campaign and his interest in helping us lift the spirits of those who have endured so much to protect the freedoms we enjoy daily,” said General John I. Pray, Jr., Executive Vice President and Joint Chief of Staff, U.S. Air Force. “His support is greatly appreciated, especially from our wounded warriors and their families.”
“It’s an honor for me to be able to give back to these men and women of the military who have done so much for all of us. They put their lives on the line for us every day, and I’m just happy that my work on Anger Management can bring a little bit of relief to the troops and their families,” Sheen said (in a speech most likely written for him by someone else).
