*Charlie Sheen is now saying that Dave Chappelle is at the root of his stomach hernia in 2011, which he says triggered his headline-making meltdown and eventually led to the loss of his job on “Two and a Half Men” – a role since taken on by Ashton Kutcher.
Many believe that the stomach hernia was a result of drugs. After all, Sheen did enter rehab shortly afterward. But in this instance, Sheen says it was his laughter at a “Chappelle’s Show” skit that triggered the hernia.
“Remember the scene where he’s a blind white supremacist who doesn’t know he’s black? It’s f**king hilarious,” Sheen told Playboy Magazine. “I’d never seen it, and I laughed myself into a hernia. That is 100 percent true. It’s his fault. There you go. Dave Chappelle cost me my job.”
Sheen’s new series “Anger Management” premieres later this month.
