(Newser) – Hanesbrands said today it's ending its advertising campaign featuring Charlie Sheen because of domestic-violence charges filed against the actor. Company spokesman Matt Hall says it was a "pretty standard, straightforward call" given the nature of allegations from Sheen's wife that the 44-year-old held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her on Christmas Day.
