Charlie Sheen Fans Offer Flood of Online Support After HIV Positive Announcement

”Charlie, I hope that today starts freedom and peace in your life from now on… God bless,“ one user tweets after the news breaks

Charlie Sheen revealed on Tuesday that he was diagnosed as HIV positive four years ago, and fans have quickly taken to social media to send support the actor’s way.

“Hang in there Charlie Sheen, hope all those people you have helped are there for you,” one user tweeted.

“Feeling sad for Charlie Sheen,” said another. “No one deserves this!”

The former “Two and a Half Men” star said that after experiencing cluster headaches and “insane” migraines he was hospitalized before receiving the diagnosis. “I thought I had a brain tumor,” he said. “I thought it was over.”

“It’s a hard three letters to absorb,” the 50-year-old sitcom star said. “It’s a turning point in one’s life.”

Sheen followed up his appearance on NBC’s “Today” with an open letter promising his days of partying are behind him, and “philanthropic days” lie ahead.
