Apparently Sean Penn‘s cure for Haiti’s problems is Charlie Sheen. Yeah, that’s just what they need…

The recently fired “Two and a Half Men” star is bringing his “Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not An Option” tour to Haiti on the advice of one Sean Penn. Both actors visited the region together earlier this month, and apparently it had quite the effect on Sheen. The only good thing is that all proceeds from the show will go to benefit charities in Haiti!

TMZ has reported that the Haiti show will be Sheen’s last on the tour, which is estimated to generate an estimated $7 million profit.

In a recent interview, Penn defended his friend by saying, “When you divorce the moral judgments, which I prefer to do, I see a guy who has a clearer view of the nature of the world around him than is sometimes comfortable to have. Those are the sort of people who have a tendency to find altered states. But he’s a very ironic character. He’s got pretension in the crosshairs of his wit. I think to a large degree he’s saying, ‘Guys, we’re only going to be here once, so lighten the f**k up.’ ”

If lightening up means losing your children, beating women, and hiring prostitutes, then I’ll stick to being a bore!

    Are we soil talking about this low life? What an embarrassment to the U.S. just because he was a star ….. I don’t condone his lifestyle just because he made so much money. Too bad for the poor guy who acts out as Mr Sheen has, he would be in jail ….what’s up with that?

    This article is offensive on so many levels. First off, hiring a prostitute doesn’t make him a bad person it’s own right. Your puritanical judgements and moral preferences are your chosen lifestyle, but prostitution doesn’t hurt anyone. Second, we actually don’t know that he has ever hurt a woman. Just because someone says he did doesn’t mean it really did, and we shouldn’t assume one way or the other, espeacially when neither party seems credible. Finally, most divorces have nasty custody battles. Being the child of a single father and a mother who really did live Sheen’s alleged lifestyle, I know how much the court system is biased in favor of mothers in custdy disputes. You’re only reinforcing that. Plenty of evidence shows that he is an involved and caring dad, as the mothers have often said.

    Nearly every piece ends with hearsay and rumor now.Ecorazzi, your quality has been reduced to that of tmz.
