Charlie Sheen on the Internet

Can't Look Away: Charlie Sheen on the Internet

News travels fast in the age of the Internet, but that means gossip does, too. If you've been unable to turn away from the drama that is Charlie Sheen, you're not alone. After being rushed to the hospital in January, his hard-partying lifestyle has drawn media scrutiny. And now his TV interviews and surrounding drama are making headlines again, leaving some to wonder if he's actually OK — but we can't seem to take our eyes away from his downward spiral.

Mid-afternoon Tuesday, Charlie Sheen created a verified Twitter account, which amassed nearly 170,000 followers in the first four hours — before he even posted a tweet. When he did, he posted a photo that immediately received hundreds of thousands of views. There are plenty of spoof sites, one in particular that has over 70,000 Facebook Likes, and everyone from CNN to TMZ is reporting Sheen's every move.

I'm still on an ethical fence about whether all of this visibility is helpful or hurtful. On one hand, he seems to be welcoming the attention. On the other, it's very hard to watch what looks like someone completely losing his grip on reality. The Internet is amazing for immediate access and a person's sense of expression; unfortunately it's also very permanent. Have an opinion? Share it below.

He's creating the buzz around himself by booking interviews, etc. on his own. So even if it's hurtful - it's all in his hands.
