(CBS) - Charlie Sheen being irrational? Surely you kid.

Since his volcanic morning show tirades and separation from "Two and a Half Men," the troubled star has had only kind words for ex-wife Denise Richards.

But earlier on Monday, the unemployed actor/full-time warlock blasted Richards on Twitter for taking back two pugs from his house.

Richards believed the dogs were being mistreated. She reportedly went to Sheen's house where he gave her the dogs. Her fears about the pugs' health seem sadly well-founded, as one of the dogs died of malnutrition, according to TMZ.

Even though Sheen reportedly gave up the dogs, he took to social media to rip on his ex-wife. "We must bombard with Warlock napalm, that traitor and loser whore #DUH-neese POOR-ards. A vile kidnapper and now dog thief. Hate."

Richards, no stranger to harsh words from her ex, has no intention of giving up the remaining pug. Sheen claims he needs to dog to be the mascot for his upcoming comedy tour.

Earlier this month, Sheen had nothing but nice things to say about Richards. He told Howard Stern, "She's fabulous, and she's smoking hot, and I just love her to death."
