Charlie Sheen’s Apology and Reason For Using The Other F-Word

Charlie Sheen mayor of Los AngelesCharlie Sheen cheekily tells TMZ that he meant to say “maggot” instead of “faggot” at the opening of a rooftop bar he co-owns because he has a speech impediment.

Sheen originally caused a mini uproar when he said, “Lying bunch of faggot assholes, how we doing?” to a crowd at Epic inside El Ganzo hotel in Cabo San Lucas.

“I meant to say maggot but I have a lisp,” he explained.

The rest of his apology (“I meant no ill will and intended to hurt no one and I apologize if I offended anyone”) was sadly lacking in warlock or Vatican assassin talk. Maybe next time?
