Actor Charlie Sheen is apparently decidedly not here for President-elect Donald Trump.

Following news of the death of actress Debbie Reynolds, star of the classic Singin’ in the Rain, Sheen sent out a plea to God in a tweet, asking him to take Trump next … six times over, just for good measure, we're sure:


The tweet, which was rounded out with a middle-finger emoji, has been retweeted over 20,000 times and liked by more than 40,000.

Reynolds, 84, died just one day after her daughter, actress Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, passed away.


Their deaths are just the latest in a series of celebrity deaths this year that include greats like Muhammad Ali, Prince, Alan Thicke, George Michael and David Bowie.

The shocking number of deaths has left social media on edge as many fans express anxiety over whom the year may take next with just two days left. One man even started a GoFundMe campaign to protect Betty White from 2016 … which has actually raised just over $7,000 of a $10,000 goal in one day.


"Help 2016 catch these hands if it goes anywhere near Betty White! If she's okay with it I will fly to where ever Betty White is and keep her safe till Jan 1, 2017. Now, assuming she doesn't want a strange Greek standing guard outside her door all monies will be donated to the Spartanburg little theater to help craft new stars of stage and screen to carry mantle of the legends that have left is this year," the description, written by Demetrios Hrysikos, reads.

As for Sheen, well, we know how he really feels.
