He wants to be back in the major league.
Actor Charlie Sheen publicly begged Elon Musk to return his blue Twitter checkmark on Friday.
Sheen, like thousands of others, lost his official verification badge after a site-wide purge of legacy verified accounts who refused to pony up for Twitter Blue — Musk’s $8-dolllar-a-month subscription service.
“dear @elonmusk. i’m sorry your fancy rocket exploded in spectacular fashion. I’m certain you’ll build an even bigger and more explody one,” Sheen wrote. “now, may i please have my blue check back? it would mean a lot to me. thank you in advance, sincerely – c sheen.”
The “fancy rocket” the “Two and a Half Men” and “Platoon” star referenced was Musk’s 400-foot tall SpaceX Starship, which exploded moments after taking off in Boca Chica, Texas, Thursday.
Officials say the Starship, the world’s most powerful rocket, will one day be capable of taking people to the moon and Mars.
Though Musk has agreed to cover the costs for a few megawatt accounts like Stephen King, LeBron James and William Shatner, he offered no indication that Sheen would be among that select group.
“I feel your pain,” he tweeted in response to Sheen’s appeal.
