Angus T. Jones has offered an apology to Two and a Half Men and the show's producers after slamming the show in a video posted Monday, in which he called it “filth” and told viewers not to watch.
In the video, which now has over 1.6 million views, Jones discusses his religious beliefs with the Forerunner Chronicles. “I'm on Two and a Half Men, and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it, please stop filling your head with filth,” he said.
According to Deadline, Jones finally broke his silence in a statement sent to the media by his rep, saying, “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 over the past ten years and who have become an extension of my family.”
He continues, “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.”
After thanking the rest of the crew for the experience of working with them, Jones apologizes “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.”
While the producers haven’t commented on the video, Charlie Sheen, who was fired from the show for criticizing it in 2011, sent a statement to People, calling it a cursed show.
“With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed,” he said.
A source close to the show also told People that the video took them by surprise. “This came as a surprise to most people. This isn't who he grew up as,” the source said. “He's always been a good kid and he's very well-liked by everyone at the show.”
The comments came after Jones joined the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
While it has been reported that Jones won’t appear in the last two episodes of the season, that is purely a coincidence. His character is in the army and has been appearing on the show less frequently.
