Charlie Sheen

Actor Charlie Sheen is well known for his colorful vocabulary, but in the midst of a 2008 custody battle with his ex-wife Denise Richards, he took things to another level. Richards released an expletive-laced voice mail in which Sheen used a crude term for a female body part and referred to her as “f***ing n****r.”

Sheen apologized — though not to Richards. “I deeply apologize by my choice of words to all I have obviously offended; especially to Tony Todd, an African-American, who was my best man at my first two weddings,” he said in a statement.
