After news that actress Debbie Reynolds died yesterday (2016 has had a particularly high mortality rate for Hollywood), Sheen responded with a tweet saying he hoped Trump would be next.
Sheen finished his tweet with a middle finger emoji.
As of writing this article, the tweet had been liked over 72,000 times and retweeted over 38,000 times.
Sheen received so much criticism in response that he wrote a note addressing the reactions.
And while many were upset, a lot seemed to love the message.

I understand that people are upset by the election results. Trust me, I get it. But the best way of wishing for change is definitely not wishing for harm to come to someone. There’s already been enough death in 2016. Instead, we should be focusing of effecting positive change. Attend a peaceful protest. Find a philanthropic cause to be a part of. Write a social media post that encourages love not hate.
It’s too easy today to send out a tweet without giving the consequences of your words a second thought. Trust me, I’ve read plenty of Trump tweets that prove my point. Which is exactly why we all need to take a step back. No good can come from a conversation that only encourages negativity.
How are you effecting positive change after the election?
