While introducing the opening's musical
acts, which included Slash, Sheen yelled out to the crowd, “How we
doing? … Lying bunch of faggot assholes, how we doing?”
Sheen apologized for the remarks,
saying he meant to say maggots instead of faggots.
“I meant no ill will and intended to
hurt no one and I apologize if I offended anyone,” Sheen said. “I
meant to say maggot but I have a lisp.”
“Antonio Villaraigosa knows how to
party!” Sheen messaged in a tweet along with a photo of the pair.
A representative for Villaraigosa told
TMZ that the mayor, a strong gay rights ally, had “no comment.”
