Back in the early 1990s, Andrew Dice Clay was selling out sports arenas by doing shows that included obscene versions of nursery rhymes and routines described as sexist, misogynistic, racist and filthy.
These days, he's still dirty on stage, but now he's telling the former "Two and a Half Men" star it's time to clean up his act.
In the video, however, Clay -- who is wearing a patch on his left eye because he suffers from light sensitivity -- demurred discussing Gottfried, instead choosing to give Sheen some tough love.
"This f---ing Charlie Sheen, with all his ranting and all the attention he's getting, maybe he should say something nice, and maybe some kind words to all those people out in Tokyo and to their families while he's got the f---ing spotlight on him," Clay groused. "No one's got the balls to tell this guy how f---ed up he is."
Clay went on to say he's disgusted at how Sheen has a chance to be on what he calls "one of the best sitcoms of the decade" and then goes on TV to promote drugs.
If this sounds strange coming from a man who never met a four-letter word he didn't like, Dice won't argue. However, he said the message to Sheen was a mixture of "Dice" -- the edgy, take-no-prisoners comic who gets paid for being outrageous -- and Andrew Silverstein, the Brooklyn-raised Jewish boy who reared two sons on his own for many years.
"There is an intermingling of Andrew Silverstein and Dice," Clay told AOL News. "It's like this: When Britney Spears was unraveling mentally, I was on 'O'Reilly' but refused to pick on her. Meanwhile, guys like Jay Leno, who used to get on me for my jokes, were happy to kick her when she was down.
"On the other hand, Charlie Sheen is a great actor and took a job on a hit TV show, but he doesn't take any responsibility. He's making drugs seem OK."
As Clay sees it, Sheen's recent brag that his drug use was epic is an insult to drug casualties like River Phoenix and John Belushi.
"He's pissing on people like Phoenix and Belushi by saying they mixed the wrong formula and he does it right," Clay said. "You think you did? I'm telling you, your brain is fried!"
Clay also said Sheen's antics are disrespectful to his father, actor Martin Sheen.
"Forget about being a rock star or a party animal," he said. "What about listening to your father who loves you? He's just this little Malibu rich kid who got richer, but is that any excuse to go on TV and tell people to use drugs?"
"Most of the people aren't laughing with him. They're laughing at him," he said. "Sheen says Sean Penn and Colin Farrell are calling him. Well, you can be damned sure Sean Penn isn't saying, 'You're doing great! Keep banging those rocks!'"
Clay also had harsh words for Sheen's decision to have porn stars living with him.
"You want to go out with porn stars? Fine," Clay said. "I know a lot of them. But if you're fighting a custody battle, why give your ex-wife the ammunition? I went through a bad divorce and I raised two sons. All I cared was that they be raised smart and educated.
Although Clay hopes Sheen finally gets the help he needs ("His kids are going to need him as they get older"), he warned Sheen that if he goes through rehab, "Don't do it on VH1."
Meanwhile, Clay is thinking about his own career. He reportedly is joining the cast of the HBO series "Entourage" and thinks another TV gig may be perfect for him.
"I never watched 'Two and a Half Men' before, but I recently saw a couple of episodes and had my people contact producer Chuck Lorre," he said. "I could step right in there."
