Charlie Sheen showed that he can still totally shock people when he took to Twitter during Father’s Day yesterday, targetting ex-wife Denise Richards and branding her ‘the worst mum alive’.
Luckily, Denise was taught to kill such nasty comments with kindness, and responded on her own Twitter in the best way possible.
Charlie, 49, went on something of a vile Twitter rant on Sunday, taking aim at his 44-year-old ex-wife (and the mother of two of his kids, 11-year-old Sam and 10-year-old Lola), writing: “Brooke M is a sexy rok star whom I adore D Richards a heretic washed up piglet Shame pile Happy Father’s Day!!! [sic]“
Brooke M most likely refers to Brooke Mueller, his third ex-wife and the mother of his twin sons Bob and Max, who were once in Denise’s custody.
He wasn’t done there though, continuing on to add: “Cadre: On FD; Father’s Rights! I INSIST we devour the mendacity of these “kidnapping” D Richards “types” & bring justice to “us,”.”
He later seemed to clear up what he was referring to (sort of) in a “open letter to the media,” in which he hints that his anger stems from a conflict over money. Possibly.
The letter starts by saying: “Denise Richards is a shake down piece of s**t doosh phace & worst mom alive!”
The whole Twitlonger is still available to read here, although his other tweets have since been deleted.
However, rather than fighting fire with fire, Denise had THE classiest response to the rant, tweeting simply to wish Charlie a Happy Father’s Day.
She wrote: “Happy Dad’s Day! @charliesheen have a great trip in Mexico! Kids were disappointed u weren’t here for it- Hey we’ll celebrate when u r back!”
Kill them with kindness, babes.
She later tweeted another message to all the other amazing dads in the world, before retweeting a Twitter user’s inspirational message about not letting negativity get you down.
Other Twitter users were ready to show the actress a tonne of support following her message, with Louise Mensch writing: “classy and classic burn, sis.”
Another said: “staying above the cray..”
Hurrah! Well done for staying classy, Denise.
