It’s not surprising that Charlie Sheen got a little too excited at the prospect of meeting up with a teenager he saw on TV and tweeted his cell number to the public instead of through a DM. What is surprising is that the teenager was a boy. Named Justin Bieber.
The Daily Mail says…
(Sheen) thought that he was just sending his digits to the teenage singer but instead his 5.5million followers were able to view the number – until it was swiftly taken down.
Charlie saw the funny side and answered the phone a few times, saying things like ‘Ray’s Pizza’ and ‘Winning.”
‘But his phone just continued ringing and buzzing and eventually just completely melted down. Charlie was like, “I guess I need a new phone.”‘
Charlie Sheen is almost 50, and was getting pranked after posting his number because he wanted to hang out with Justin Bieber. I’m not sure what he should have said when answering the first few calls, but I’m confident the word “winning” doesn’t apply to any of this in even the loosest possible sense.
