What's Charlie Sheen saying about Ashton Kutcher taking his job?

Duh, whining.

"Ashton Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer. Oh wait, so am I!!" the actor griped Friday. "Enjoy the show America, Enjoy seeing 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB. Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there."

Sheen, 45, was referring to Chuck Lorre, the creator and executive producer of Two and a Half Men and Sheen's nemesis since he was fired from the hit sitcom amid allegations about his lifestyle and behavior on the set.

Kutcher, 33, who got the role after Hugh Grant reportedly dropped out of negotiations, will make $650,000 to $750,000 an episode, a source close to the show tells PEOPLE.
