Two and a Half Men

[creator Chuck Lorre is] a stupid, stupid little man and a pu**y punk that I never want to be like.

— Charlie Sheen

The rhetorical devices and/or Greek figures used are the figure of repetition epizeuxis for stupid stupid (battologia for the vain repetition); alliteration (Greek figure homoeoprophoron) of pu**y punk; cacemphaton for the foul language; 

Side note: name-calling is not an ad hominem attack.

The back story:

“TMZ has learned “Two and a Half Men” will immediately stop production for the rest of the season … because of Charlie’s escapades in the last few days … most recently what he said to TMZ.”
