Former Two and A Half Men actor Charlie Sheen took his anger at Apple’s restrictive operating system out on his iPad, according to a report in tabloid UK newspaper The Sun.

The publication claims Sheen was enraged by the inability to share audio between iOS devices without using iTunes, a policy integrated to limit music piracy.

While praising Apple’s late CEO Steve Jobs, Sheen said he took his frustration out on Apple’s iPad tablet and hurled the device into a wall.

“The fact you can’t share music between devices and have to go through this central hub makes me very angry,” Sheen told The Sun.

“So I took my iPad and I flung it – I didn’t know how aerodynamic it was: you can use it as a weapon.”

The disgraced former star was fired from hit TV show Two and A Half Men after battling anger issues and a drug addiction in March last year. Ironically, Sheen now stars in US TV series Anger Management.

This is the second article from The Sun on Apple iTunes sharing, after wrongly reporting Bruce Willis was considering legal action against the Cupertino-based company a fortnight ago. The report was refuted by Willis’ wife Emma Heming on Twitter.
