Charlie Sheen knows a thing or two about using drugs and being under media scrutiny. It makes sense that a reporter would ask his opinion about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who confessed to buying drugs while in office and was caught on video allegedly smoking crack cocaine and threatening violence.
However, the actor claims he was misquoted in a newspaper in which he reportedly called for Ford's resignation
While filming "Scary Movie 6" in the Canadian city this week, Sheen reportedly told La Presse newspaper, "I hate to pass judgement on anybody, especially given my history. But I've been seeing those videos on the news, and I think it's fair to say that Rob Ford parties too much. I can honestly tell you I've never been that high.
"There was this one time in Vegas when I took four Victoria's Secret models and did one gram off each of their bodies within, like, 45 minutes. I declared myself King of Vegas and decided to remodel my hotel room with my bare hands to resemble King Louis XIV's bedroom at Versailles. Knocked down two entire walls, and later had four knuckle surgeries. Still wasn't as high as Rob Ford.
"This guy needs help. I'm not saying he needs counseling or AA or rehab or anything like that. Everyone gets better in different ways. But, yeah, I think he should at least resign and figure out what kind of help is right for him. It's one thing if you're an actor, but public servants should be held to a higher standard."
On Thursday, Sheen backtracked on the comments, insisting he was misquoted.
He posted on Twitter: "Dear Mayor Rob Ford, the only truth or correct reporting in today's repulsive story regarding my alleged comments about you, is the accurate spelling of your great city.
"Your personal life is and never would be, any of my business. I'm sorry for any grief this may have caused. If I can be of any assistance in any capacity in this media cesspool, please accept the noble offer of my steady hand and compassionate heart. respectfully, charlie sheen."
