Yesterday, the Daily Currant, the world's worst "satire" site, published a fake news story about Charlie Sheen calling for Toronto mayor Rob Ford's resignation. Many, many people fell for the "joke," including Sheen, who was so offended that he tweeted a bizarre apology poem to Ford.
dear Mayor Rob Ford,
the only truth or correct reporting in today's
repulsive story regarding
my alleged comments about you,
is the accurate spelling of your great city.
your personal life is and never would be,
any of my business.
I'm sorry for any grief this may have caused.
if I can be of any assistance
in any capacity in this
please accept the noble offer of my steady
hand and compassionate heart.
Not so sure about the "steady hand" part, but it's a nice gesture, even if Ford probably has too much on his plate now to take Sheen up on his offer.
