Lee Aronsohn: ‘Two and a Half Men’ creator blasted for criticizing female comedies as ‘labia saturation’

Lee Aronsohn, co-creator of "Two and a Half Men."

Lee Aronsohn, a co-creator of CBS’ sitcom “Two and a Half Men” has found himself at the center of controversy for his questionable remarks about comedy shows based on women.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Lee Aronsohn said, “Enough ladies. I get it. You have periods.”

“We’re approaching peak vagina on television, the point of labia saturation,” he added.

Aronsohn was also a speaker at the Toronto Screenwriting Conference over the weekend, where he said the characters on “Two and a Half Men” are plagued by troubles caused by women.

“We’re centering the show on two very damaged men,” he said. “What makes men damaged? Sorry, it’s women. I never got my heart broken by a man.”

Internet backlash quickly followed the remarks as several notable female comedians launched a campaign of girl power against Aronsohn.

Co-creator of “The Daily Show” Lizz Winstead tweeted a link to the Hollywood Reporter interview along with the comment, “At the risk of never getting a part on “2 1/2 Men” What a gaping [expletive]…”

Aronsohn didn’t back down from his comments initially, instead defending them as harmless jokes, as reported by The New York Times.

“Women, please look up ‘irony,’” he tweeted, and later said, “See what I did there?”

However, he removed that last comment and later replaced it with, “Yes, yes – it was a stupid joke. I’m sorry.”

Considering Aronsohn’s resume includes work on shows with female leads like “Grace Under Fire” and “Murphy Brown,” we’re left wondering whether this was all a big publicity stunt to fill the “crazy comments” gap that Charlie Sheen left behind when he was booted from “Two and a Half Men.” If that’s the case, #notwinning.
