The Ladies of ‘The View’ Have No Sympathy for Sheen’s Assault Victim

This morning, the ladies of “The View” discussed the charges of assault brought forward by Capri Anderson, the woman stuck in Charlie Sheen‘s hotel room last month when he went bonkers. Led by Whoopi “It wasn’t rape-rape” Goldberg, the women roundly dismissed Anderson’s claims.

Anderson went on “Good Morning America” today to recount the events of that night, and to announce her intentions to file charges against Sheen for battery, assault and false imprisonment.

Interestingly, she says Sheen later offered her $20,000 offer to keep quiet. Gosh, it’s getting expensive to beat up a woman these days.
