Angered by recent comments by Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson likening homosexuality to bestiality, Charlie Sheen has taken to Twitter to launch a blistering attack on the show’s patriarch.

‘You have offended and hurt so many dear friends of mine, who DO NOT have the voice or the outreach that I do,’ Sheen posted yesterday.

‘Well news flash shower-dodger, I will speak loudly and clearly for ALL of them … Just when your desperately sub evolved ass thought the pressure was off, you are now in the cross hairs of a MaSheen style media beat down.’

Sheen said that Robertson’s comments were ‘unforgivable.’

‘I'll try to keep the big words to a minimum as not to confuse you,’ Sheen posted.

‘Your statements were and are abhorrently and mendaciously unforgivable. The idea that you have a job outside of dirt-clod stacking is a miracle.

‘The only thing you should ever be in charge of building is a hole in the ground the exact size of your head. Perhaps your beard would fit as well if you plucked out the army of scabies and … weevils sequestered deep in it's sarcophagus of dander and weasel pelts.’

Sheen posted that he was ‘repulsed’ by Robertson.

‘Shame on you,’ Sheen wrote, ‘You're the only surviving brain donor I've ever known.’

‘When the gators and Egrets kick you out of their hovel, you need to make serious amends to those you have radically offended. On the eight day when I was whittling my cosmic banjo, I'm pretty sure YOU were the scattered dross I then used to light a fire … Repulsed by you; C Sheen.’

In a recent interview with GQ, Robertson compared homosexuality to bestiality and also grouped 'the homosexual offenders' with prostitutes, swindlers, drunks and others who 'won’t inherit the kingdom of God.'

He also offered an interpretation on the segregated South, maintaining when he grew up blacks were 'singing and happy.'

Sheen most recently appeared as the President of the United States in the Robert Rodriguez action movie Machete Kills, credited under his birth name Carlos Estevez, and continues to star in the television sit-com Anger Management.
