(CNN) — Charlie Sheen has mostly stayed away from controversy recently, but he managed to get one last doozy in for 2012.

The Los Angles Times reports that the “Anger Management” star has apologized for a homophobic slur he recently made. According to the publication Sheen was emceeing the opening of a bar at a seaside restaurant in Mexico when he used the offensive word.

“How we doing?” Sheen says in a video that TMZ’s posted in its website Sunday. “Lying bunch of (slur)…how we doing?”

Sheen very quickly issued an apology.

“I meant no ill will and intended to hurt no one and I apologize if I offended anyone,” he said in the statement.
