Charlie Sheen has been attacking Two and Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, and while he really might despise his former friend right now, he wants everyone to know he is not an anit-semite and released yet another statement explaining why he kept referring to Chuck as Haim (Chaim) Levine, his Hebrew birth name. 

"I was referring to Chuck by his real name, because I wanted to address the man, not the bulls**t TV persona," Charlie told TMZ.

The producer's birth name is Charles Levine ... and Haim or Chaim is the Hebrew translation of the name Charles.

"So you're telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino," Charlie added.

Nonetheless, the actor's rant against Charles delivered some pretty hard-hitting insults and had a very threatening tone.

“What does this say about Haim Levine after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows … I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can’t handle my power and can’t handle the truth. I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon."

So while he claims not be using an anti-semitic slur, he does wish pain on Chuck.

Is it hard to believe Charlie was just addressing Chuck by his full name in such a mean-spirited rant? Share your thoughts in the comments.
