“Can I ask why you suppose it is acceptable to grant a visa to this violent prison at a time when males are murdering girls in Australia at epidemic charges and hundreds extra are terrorised on a regular basis by males like him?” Meagher requested.
In one other tweet, shared by activist group Collective Shout which final week pushed for a ban on Sheen’s arrival, Meagher expanded on his views.
“Charlie Sheen is in search of character rehabilitation in Australia throughout a nationwide disaster the place multiple lady per week is murdered by a person,” he wrote.
“If, within the midst of this disaster, we imagine it’s acceptable to welcome a serial violent offender like Sheen to an enviornment the place he’s applauded, celebrated and speaks unchallenged, it’s tough to imagine that it is a nation that takes the job of ending its epidemic of male violence towards girls severely.”
In Collective Shout’s protests final week, marketing campaign supervisor Caitlin Roper stated the federal government’s resolution to permit Sheen to tour Australia undermines all of the arduous work that is being carried out to place an finish to violence towards girls.
“It tells males if you happen to’re high-profile sufficient, rich or well-known sufficient, you may get away with it,” she stated. “I do not actually imagine he is a modified man. He is obtained a extremely lengthy rap sheet.”
Sheen’s tour goes forward on Saturday November three on the Conference Centre in Melbourne, and on the ICC in Sydney on November four. The tour’s publicist Max Markson has stated nothing might be off-limits throughout the reveals.
“He’ll cowl his time on Two and a Half Males and the blow-up on the finish,” he stated. “He’ll discuss HIV. There’ll even be an open Q&A with the viewers. He is carried out an unbelievable physique of labor.”
