Charlie Sheen Grovels, Begs Elon Musk for His Blue Twitter Checkmark Back

Hollywood star Charlie Sheen has begged Elon Musk to restore his coveted blue Twitter verification checkmark.

In a groveling public display on Friday, Sheen tweeted to Musk to ask for his verification badge back.

Earlier this week, the platform removed all of the verification badges from celebrities who have not signed up for the $8-per-month Twitter Blue subscription.

One of Musk’s early goals for Twitter was to scrap the elitist hierarchy that blue badges created by allowing anyone to apply to be verified by paying a small fee.

However, when the badges were removed this week, celebrities flooded Twitter to express their outrage at losing their badges because they refused to pay.

Sheen can certainly afford to spend $8 bucks a month making the begging even more desperate.

“Dear @elonmusk,” Sheen said on Twitter.

“I’m sorry your fancy rocket exploded in spectacular fashion.

“I’m certain you’ll build an even bigger and more explody one.

“Now, may I please have my blue check back?

“It would mean a lot to me. thank you in advance, sincerely – c sheen.”

Musk fired back with: “I Feel your pain.”

And Sheen wasn’t the only celeb to show their true colors when Musk yanked their check marks.

Bette Midler said: “Elon, deciding that I’m not me, I’m a fake, & obliging ME, who has contributed mightily to your platform, (at least until you ‘tweaked the algorithm & tanked my metrics’) to pay monthly because you don’t have enough money & you’re humiliated b/c everyone thinks you’re a pathetic douche, is the funniest thing you’ve ever done.

“Let that sink in. Sorry to hear about your rocket.”

“Elon took my blue check away! I’m unverified!” she added.

“After all these years and thousands of tweets and free content, this worm has the nerve to de-certify me!”

Jason Alexander, the actor who played George Costanza on the hit sitcom Seinfeld, said:

“Ok everyone. Twitter has removed my verification.

“I will no longer be posting on this app.

“Anyone who posts as me is an imposter. I wish you all well.”

Alexander’s next tweet was two days later – shortly after a blue checkmark mysteriously re-appeared next to his name.

Alyssa Milano said: “So by revoking my blue check mark because I wouldn’t pay some arbitrary fee, someone can just be me and say a bunch of bullshit.

“Does that mean Twitter and @elonmusk are liable for defamation or identity theft or fraud?”

A blue checkmark also mysteriously returned to Milano’s account.

Elon Musk shut them all down by trolling them with one devastating line:

“We’ve started a ‘save-a-celebrity fund’ to pay their $8.

“We take this matter very seriously.”

He added later: “Anointed nobility is anathema.

“Quality of content counts.”
