By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

On Tuesday, CBS president Leslie Moonves spoke took to the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference where he spoke about his networks growth, Netflix and most notably, Two and a Half Men actor Angus T. Jones’ recent rant against the show.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Moonves discussed the network and "that kid on Two and a Half Men who makes $300,000 per episode to talk bad about me."

Moonves referenced Jones viral rant, in which he called the show “filth” and urged Christians to not watch the hit sitcom.

The CEO quipped at one point saying, "I don't have any kids calling me filthy in the publishing [space].”

Although Jones has since apologized for the words he spoke about the program that rakes him in an estimated $300,000/episode, Moonves did explain, “I don’t know what our status is with him.”

He adds, “I don’t think it’s been quite resolved, but after going through what we went through with Charlie Sheen, it’s been a piece of cake."
