It seems that Charlie Sheen can get away with any number of appalling acts of violence against women, up to and including death threats, and Big Entertainment won't bat an eyelash at continuing to pay him a million bucks per episode of the execrable, utterly unfunny, misogynist "Two and a Half Men" sitcom. (Yes, I have watched a number of episodes. Like I said, execrable, utterly unfunny, misogynist.)

But when he disses his bosses? Boom!!!! Fired!!

I get that he made antisemitic comments about his boss, and yes, I agree that being an antisemitic asshole should be a firing offense.

But why the fuck wasn't he fired years ago for beating up and making death threats against women?

Indeed, why isn't he sitting in a prison cell?

Oh, wait. Maybe because he's white, male, cis, hetero, filthy rich, and (until very recently) a cash cow for Big Entertainment and Big Media.
