Actor Charlie Sheen has defended remarks suggesting he hopes US president-elect Donald Trump will be the next celebrity to die.

The former Two And A Half Men star posted a message on Twitter which read: "Dear God, Trump next please!" shortly after the death of actress Debbie Reynolds was announced.

He signed off the tweet with an emoji showing a hand with its middle finger sticking up.

After a number of news reports were published about his tweet, Sheen posted a second message on his Twitter account defending his comments.

He wrote: "The media's reaction to last night's tweet is inanely emblematic of the panoramic timorousness draped vastly and wantonly across any and all expressions of hope or joy that we now dare to publish or impart.

"Oh and by the way, I was talking to God, not you."

Singin' In The Rain star Reynolds, 84, died from a suspected stroke on Wednesday, just a day after the death of her daughter, actress Carrie Fisher.

Fisher, who shot to fame as Princess Leia in Star Wars, died in hospital aged 60 after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
