Charlie Sheen — Way to Lose Your Shirt! Hanes Axes Charlie's TV Ads … For Good!

122709_CHARLIE_SHEEN_57666483_small544Hanes says the TV spots featuring the Two and a Half Men star have been suspended — and “will not run again” — after his Christmas Day arrest on assault charges!

HollywoodLife.com just learned that Hanes has dropped Charlie Sheen as a TV spokesguy for its T-shirts. His series of ads with Michael Jordan, among others (you know the ones — “You like Korean barbeque?”), have been “suspended effective Dec. 28,” according to a Hanes spokesman. Worse yet, for Charlie, they “will not run again.”

The spots may have run for a few days after the Christmas arrest in Aspen, Colo., in which he allegedly tried to choke wife Brooke Mueller.

Here’s the full statement –

Hanes is not running the Hanes television commercials featuring Charlie Sheen, and those commercials will not run again.  The commercials were suspended effective Dec. 28, the first date possible after Mr. Sheen’s Christmas Day arrest.  There are a few trade advertisements featuring Mr. Sheen scheduled to run this spring.  Unfortunately, the production schedule of those publications do not allow us to pull those ads.
