Charlie Sheen a No-Show at Baja Film Fest Due to Plane Issue

Charlie Sheen No-Show Baja Film Fest

Charlie Sheen, who was set to attend the second Baja Film Festival in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico as a special guest, didn’t achieve lift-off, tweeting that there was an issue with his plane. Sheen, whose tweets famously exceed the usual 140 letters by quite a bit, tweeted an apology to the festival on Saturday afternoon. He and his family and publicist were not able to board a different plane “for reasons that are both practical and ethereal,” he wrote, including a photo of his family on the plane. Sheen is credited as “Carlos Estevez” in the Robert Rodriguez film “Machete Kills,” which screens at the festival that runs Nov. 13-16.

His extended tweet read:

ok here goes:
first and foremost
I’d like to apologize to
Pablo Sanchez-Navarro
Hotel El Gonzo
the good people of Cabo
who organized the film festival
as well as all of my fans in
I boarded my plane this am
with denise, my daughters Sam and Lola, as well as my publicist Jeff Ballard and life long best friend Tony Todd.
I allotted ample time to attend the event in a punctual and safe capacity.
however we encountered a mechanical diversion that rendered the trip potentially life threatening.
the generous offer was made to have a replacement plane
scoop us up,
and deliver us to said event.
the problem is
for a myriad of reasons that are both practical and ethereal
and completely rooted in a
gut check ‘safety first’ code,
I will NOT fly my family
my friends
or myself on any other aircraft.
this is a non negotiable rule of mine as it lives in concert
with zero wiggle room for maybes or friendly
as I write this my plane is still not launch ready therefore leaving us all with zero options to attend the event on time.
i am beyond apologetic and I ask all involved,
to exercise grace and understanding in and around the headaches I’m certain
this has created.
