Charlie Sheen Gets Caught Up in New Controversy NY Daily News, TMZ

After a relatively controversy-free 2012 -- by Charlie Sheen standards -- the star of FX's "Anger Management" was overdue. So it may not come as a big surprise that the actor sparked one last brouhaha before the year ended.

The New York Daily News reports that Sheen was caught on video dropping a homophobic slur Friday night during the opening of a nightspot in the Cabo San Lucas area in Mexico. The video later surfaced on TMZ.

Sheen can be heard on the clip saying: "How we doing? Lying bunch of f---got a------s, how we doing?"

“Up until then Sheen had been the life of the party to open the swanky new Epic rooftop bar, which he co-owns, at the posh El Ganza hotel,” the Daily News reports. “Among the other bold-face notables that turned out: L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and former Guns n' Roses guitarist Slash, who played a set at the party.”

Sheen later offered a lukewarm apology, telling TMZ: "I meant no ill will and intended to hurt no one and I apologize if I offended anyone. I meant to say maggot but I have a lisp."
