Sheen boys vs. critic

Young Guns picIn emails flitting around Hollywood today, Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez take offense at a passage in yesterday's Times by Susan King. It ran in The Envelope and read: "Demander in chief: Charlie Sheen took brotherly love to a new level of hokum when introducing the clip of sibling Emilio Estevez's overly hyped 'Bobby' on the Golden Globes. Sheen gushed that the box-office bomb had been put 'together with love and genius by the writer and director, my big brother, Emilio Estevez.' Sheen then insisted his brother stand up, which a rightfully embarrassed Estevez did ever so briefly."

Since this is a family blog, their retorts are hidden after the jump (with email addresses redacted.)

Susan,

You're a fucking asshole.

Very sincerely,

Emilio Estevez

Hey Sad Susan - It must suck watching people do things you can only fantasize about. To spend your entire life watching the other kids play, knowing deep in your heart your parents LIED to you when they promised, "You can be whatever you want, if you just follow your dreams." Oh well, try and enjoy your daily nightmare .... And as my genius Brother so eloquently stated -

"Go fuck yourself."

Touchy, touchy.
