Charlie Sheen Does Damage Control: Visits Alabama
Charlie Sheen quickly learned that you can go from Hollywood funny guy to outcast in just a few weeks. He’s lost his fans, he’s lost his job, and he even lost a goddess. So what’s a man to do? Damage control.

Charlie is hoping to get back into our good graces by helping out with various charities. Not a bad idea.

He paid a visit to Tuscaloosa – where at least 200 people died last week after the area was struck by a number of twisters.

He walked around and talked to the victims and now plans to organize either a baseball game or "multimedia show" with celebrity pals to raise money for those affected by the natural disasters.

He told local reporters: "We’re just going to ask them to drop everything and get down here. I’m hopeful that I can do whatever I can to lend support, compassion and hope.”

Sad news is he doesn’t really have any major celebrity friends left—just a few z-listers like Simon Rex, who rapped during the opening of his Violent Torpedo Tour.

Surprisingly Charlie showed up to Tuscaloosa after a college student tweeted to him.

He added: “I wanted to see it for myself. I’m here to bring the focus of the world down. I’m on a bit of a recon mission and then we’re going to plan a fundraiser and come back in full force.”

Before his visit to the devastated area, Charlie tweeted: "Alabama; Heading your way. On a recon mission. My Cadre right behind me. You need help. I'm bringing it. DogSpeed. C (sic)"

It’ll be interesting to see if he actually keeps his promise and returns. You think he’s capable of such a big change in such a short time? Or is he doing it for some good press?
