The Today show reported that publicist for Angus T. Jones has issued a statement on Nov. 28 in response to the leaked video of him telling viewers that his hit show is “filth”. Jones was seen in a video testimony statement that went viral on the internet – meant for Forerunner Chronicles of the Seventh-day Adventist Church that he belongs to – warning members to stop watching the $350,000 per episode he is contracted under.
According to the statement made public, Jones apologizes for disrespecting the creator, producers and fellow cast and staff members of “Two and a Half Men”. However it does not mention if he remains firm on his views that it is still a filthy show and not deemed worthy of watching.
Publicist for Jones issued this statement on behalf of actor:
“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 over the past ten years and 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.
Do you believe this move was Jones idea or his publicist in an attempt for damage control?
