Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre addressed Charlie Sheen's situation in a vanity card that ran after Monday's episode of Mike & Molly.
Lorre did not address Sheen by name, but decided to share his "uncensored thoughts" because he was "under a lot of pressure to respond to certain statements made about me recently."

"I believe that consciousness creates the illusion of individuation, the false feeling of being separate," Lorre wrote. "In other words, I am aware, ergo I am alone. I further believe that this existential misunderstanding is the prime motivating force for the neurotic compulsion to blot out consciousness. This explains the paradox of our culture, which celebrates the ego while simultaneously promoting its evisceration with drugs and alcohol. It also clarifies our deep-seated fear of monolithic, one-minded systems like communism, religious fundamentalism, zombies and invaders from Mars. Each one is a dark echo of an oceanic state of unifying transcendence from which consciousness must, by nature, flee. The Fall from Grace is, in fact, a Sprint from Grace. Or perhaps more accurately, 'Screw Grace, I am so outta here!' Questions?"
Should John Stamos replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men?
The vanity card is Lorre's first statement regarding Sheen in a week after saying in last week's vanity cards for
Mike & Molly
and The Big Bang Theory
that he would "take a break for a few weeks." Since then, production on Two and a Half Men
has shut down and Sheen has gone on a media blitz blasting Lorre and CBS, among other things, and demanding more money.
