Unlike other public figures attacked with Foxman’s highly nuanced objections, Sheen demands an apology. His attorney Marty Singer says that Lorre referred to himself as Chaim on a vanity card in February and that Sheen's statement was not anti-Semitic. Sheen says he was referring to Lorre's real name "because I wanted to address the man, not the bulls**t TV persona." Sheen himself was given another name at birth. "So you're telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?"By invoking television producer Chuck Lorre’s Jewish name in the context of an angry tirade against him, Charlie Sheen left the impression that another reason for his dislike of Mr. Lorre is his Jewishness. This fact has no relevance to Mr. Sheen’s complaint or disagreement, and his words are at best bizarre, and at worst, borderline anti-Semitism.
