Charlie Sheen, in Toronto this week for his “My Violent Torpedo of Truth” tour, announced in a series of tweets that he is organizing a bipolar awareness walk for Friday evening, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Sheen was between two Toronto shows, having received mixed reviews for his Thursday performance, the story reported. He invited fans to participate in a 1.2-mile walk from his hotel to the concert venue, Massey Hall, before Friday’s show.
One of Sheen’s tweets reads: "Stop the Stigma!! Bipolar Awareness Walk!! Please join me at 6pm at the Ritz tonight! Raise Money! Raise Awareness! #BIPOLAR #BIWINNING.”
Canada’s Organization for Bipolar Affective Disorders, OBAD, was reportedly onboard and ready to match all donations, according to another Sheen tweet.
Sheen denied rumors last month that he has bipolar disorder, the story points out, responding to one interview question on the subject by saying he is “bi-winning,” and adding that his brain is “maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.”
The event is reportedly unrelated to the recent revelation by Catherine Zeta-Jones that she has bipolar disorder.
