Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds has stirred up a shit storm by saying Charlie Sheen deserves to have HIV.

Earlier today Burt, 79, appeared on English TV Show ‘Loose Women’ and went to town on Sheen, 50, by saying he handled his HIV revelation poorly. Way to kick a man when he’s down!

In an outrageous comment he said:  “I don’t feel bad for him. He’s getting what he deserves. If you’re going to misbehave like that, they’re going to get you.

“His father is a very, very decent man and a dear friend of mine. I feel bad for him, But Charlie, I don’t feel bad for him.”

We’re not sure Daddy Sheen will be too happy with you buddy!

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, a stunned member of the show’s audience revealed: “The audience were shocked – as were (TV hosts) Ruth and Coleen  - and there was an extremely awkward silence.

“Of course, HIV is something that no one deserves.”

Wow, sounds like a bundle of fun. Burt was on the show to promote his new autobiography, ‘But Enough About Me’… Well you’ve nailed that interview champ!
