Angus T. Jones, the “half” in the highly successful sitcom “Two And A Half Men”, recently made a video wherein he plead with the show’s fans to stop watching, saying the writing was “filthy”.

“If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men,” the actor said. “I’m on Two and a Half Men, and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it, and filling your head with filth…people say it’s just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch. Jake from Two and a Half Men means nothing.”

The 19-year old has recently found a calling to Christianity and made the video as part of a testimonial. He has, however, issued an apology to the writers of the show and his co-stars, saying his part on the show has been one of the most “significant” parts of his life.

I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours.
While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family.

Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.

I also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years. I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.

I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that.

No word yet on what the actor’s plans are, or if the writers of the show are in the process of deciding what to do with him. Jones reportedly has another year left on his contract.

    Calling it “filth” might be going too far. There are many better ways to describe the show. Puerile, Low-brow, unfunny, pathetic, etc.

      Filth is exactly the word to use. He has seen and heard things from a young age that he should never have seen or heard. His father on there would live with anyone if they’d pay his way and he’d do anything they wanted. Never cared about his son, only if he thought Charlie was getting more attention and love than he was getting. Charlie never put things in rotten ways to him and did protect him from the worst.

    I am proud of Angus. However, he is in a contract and has exposed himself for prosecution. The boy is correct. It’s filthy. I didn’t care for it when Sheen was on it, and it’s worst with Ashton Kutcher. His spiritual eyes have been opened. He should start looking for his next job upon the expiration of his contract. I’m grateful that he wasn’t polluted by these ‘older’ mentors. God Bless him.

    Angus’ spiritual eyes have been opened and I am proud of him. I am grateful that he wasn’t poluted by his ‘older mentor’ co-workers. He should start looking for his next acting role now, so he won’t lose any time upon the expiration of his contract.

    Give back all of the money he made from this show.

    I think the thing that bothers me is that Angus does not understand how much the “Church” is licking its chops at the prospect of all the monies he will be tithing to them. Per month by the way. I am glad he has found religion and do hope that this is the right path for him.

    LOL!! What a classic flip-flopper! I see a future in politics for the young, spoiled actor! Hey Angus, if you really want to be pure and christ-like, donate all your acting salary to the poor and less fortunate and start from scratch in the real world like the majority of people.

    I really don’t think that he flip-flopped or even changed his view. No where in the “apology” does he say anything good about the show itself. He doesn’t even imply that he doesn’t think the show is filth. In the apology he only gave credit and respect to the staff and people he has worked with. He said he appreciate them and the opportunity to work with them and all they have added to his life.

    I believe he telling the truth in both the video and his apology. It is entirely possible to love the people you work with and appreciate them, but also to think what you do $uck$. Hasn’t anyone hated their job, but LOVED the people they worked with and worked for?
