Village Voice Launches “Worldwide Unfollow Charlie Sheen On Twitter” Campaign

Hoping to take a chunk out of Charlie Sheen’s now two million strong Twitter following, The Village Voice has launched a campaign to combat the trend. Calling it “Worldwide Unfollow Charlie Sheen On Twitter Day,” the New York newspaper is asking folks to make Friday March 11th the day the webosphere restores some sanity, and unfollows the former “Two and a Half Men” actor.

Among their arguments from jumping ship on Sheen:

  • Repeated violence to women (he shot one, he threatened to behead another, and then there are the porn stars. Oh, the porn stars.)
  • Spelling “corner” with a “k.”
  • Insulting Thomas Jefferson. Repeatedly.
  • Certain men are now using him as a role model. This is not good.
  • We’re tired of #tigerblood and #winning. Really tired.
  • Thinking about him and his porn star coterie is gross.
  • He has kids. Come on.
  • We have made him even more full of himself.
  • It remains to be seen whether the campaign will amount to much, but what is certain is that no matter how much Sheen charges per advertorial tweet, it will never compare to the nearly two million per episode he was making before he threw away his hit sitcom.
