As we await the premiere of Charlie Sheen’s new FX show Anger Management, his new Playboy interview will keep us entertained. The best part of writer Eric Spitznagel’s Q&A, in which the actor dissects his public meltdown at length, is arguably the part where Sheen explains why he really ended up in the hospital the January before he was fired from Two and a Half Men. It wasn’t after he’d spent days partying and doing drugs, as tabloids reported and his employers allegedly believed — it was because he laughed too hard at a Dave Chappelle sketch.
SHEEN: Remember that scene where he’s a blind white supremacist who doesn’t know he’s black? Have you seen it? It’s the funniest thing in the world. He becomes a Klansman, and he’s railing against black people. It’s insanely brilliant.
PLAYBOY: We’re familiar with it. “If anyone’s gonna have sex with my sister, it’s going to be me.”
SHEEN: Right. It’s f—ing hilarious. I’d never seen it, and I laughed myself into a hernia. That is 100 percent true.
PLAYBOY: So forget Chuck Lorre, forget Warner Bros. and CBS. It’s Dave Chappelle’s fault that you got fired?
SHEEN: It’s his fault. There you go. Dave Chappelle cost me my job.
