Angus T. Jones, an actor on Two and a Half Men, recently slammed the show, calling it “filth” and urged viewers not to watch it, saying he doesn’t even want to be a part of it anymore.
This is all too familiar for CBS and producers at Men, as Charlie Sheen got fired before Ashton Kutcher replaced him for his many rants against the show.
Although Jones has since apologized, CBS CEO Les Moonves is now weighing in on the controversy.
"We took this boy who started with us when he was eight years old and it seems to be what happens with child stars over the course of time," Moonves said at a breakfast hosted by the Wall Street Journal, USA Today reports.
He added “He's now making over $300,000 per week, which is not a bad salary for a 19-year-old kid, and he went on a religious channel and urged people not to watch the show because it was filth. By the way, he's still collecting his $300,000 per week."
Moonves concluded about Jones’ future with the show, “I don't know what our status is with him” but "after going through what we went through with Charlie Sheen, it's been a piece of cake."
