Several news agencies are treating a May 29 tweet posted by actor Charlie Sheen seriously. Now that ABC canceled “Roseanne," Sheen acted on the timing to pitch the resurrection of “Two and a Half Men” on Twitter with the hashtag #CharlieHarperReturns. Not so fast, however.

While Tinseltown may forgive and forget, many people do not. When Sheen was fired from “Two and a Half Men” in 2011, the show was quite popular, BBC pointed out. The sitcom was so well-liked, in fact, that Ashton Kutcher was brought onboard to co-star after CBS fired Sheen.

Networks are not likely to work with blatantly temperamental actors prone to launch tirades that offend and demean colleagues.

Just as Roseanne was confronted with the fact that offensive opinions do not play well on a public platform, Sheen discovered that some things will push the most resilient to a breaking point, even in the entertainment industry that leaves many feeling already jaded.

Stars faced similar sitcom fates, getting fired

Sheen’s tirades sent him packing from the sitcom, which killed off his character after he lashed out publicly. There is a striking similarity between the firings of Roseanne and Sheen. Both relayed their thoughts either from a sense of egotism, indifference, or dismissing the need to invoke self-restraint and use a filter.

When views are so offensive to millions of people, even with a die-hard fan base, entertainment loses value as actors apply their celebrity status by advocating and expressing opinions that hurt other people.

They pose a liability and are a risk that the public will construe their continued roles as a sign of approval. Winners do not need to tear others down to make a point.

Fan’s haven’t forgotten what led to Charlie Harper’s demise

While The Blast, Page Six, Fox News, and People TV are in the ranks of media outlets writing about Sheen’s pitch for a “Two and a Half Men” redux, it may be prudent to also think of the source.

Surely, the irony has not escaped Sheen, who is quite intelligent and understands the implications of not only what he states but how he also delivers a message.

There is definitely the possibility that Sheen was parlaying Roseanne’s firing to show-off his quick wit blended with sarcasm, more than making a plea to resurrect a character he self-destructed. Even if Sheen took himself seriously while tweeting about breathing life back into “Two and a Half Men” and reprising his character Charlie Harper, some social media users loathe the thought.

Many have not forgotten what led to his character’s demise.

A Twitter user, going by the moniker @JRCHeller, replied to Sheen’s idea of reviving “Two and a Half Men,” noting, “Great. Let’s swap in misogyny….” Sheen’s former co-star, Jon Cryer, also replied, tweeting, “What could possibly go wrong?” Need anyone ask? Sometimes it is better to let sitcoms live in the land of syndication and allow the stars to garner royalties.
