(CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico) — Charlie Sheen is apologizing for a homophobic slur he made Friday at the opening of his new rooftop bar in Mexico.
“I meant no ill will and intended to hurt no one and I apologize if I offended anyone,” he told TMZ Sunday. “I meant to say maggot but I have a lisp.”
Sheen’s rep was unable to confirm the details of what Sheen reportedly said, but referred to his statement to TMZ when asked for a comment.
TMZ posted a video purportedly of Sheen on stage introducing the opening acts at his Epic Bar on the rooftop of the four-story El Ganzo hotel near Cabo San Lucas.
“How we doing? …Lying bunch of ******* how we doing?” he says on the video.
Sheen promoted the bar’s opening and special guest performer Slash, former lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses, on his Twitter page, Friday.
Later he touted Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s appearance at the grand opening.
“From Boyle Heights 2 Mayor of LA…!…Antonio Villaraigosa knows how to party!” Sheen tweeted Saturday, along with a photo of himself, grinning, with his arm slung around the mayor, also flashing a toothy grin.
The photo was later deleted from Sheen’s Twitter feed.
Villaraigosa’s press secretary declined to comment on the photo, telling ABC News only that the mayor is in Mexico until Jan. 2.
