Late Tuesday, Angus T. Jones issues a public apology for a religious rant he posted on YouTube Monday when he asked his “Two and a Half Men” fans to just stop watching and called the show “filth”.
Jones, 19, recently joined the Seventh-Day Adventist church and Monday he posted a YouTube video that went viral with over 1 million views; Tuesday he apologized for his rant by issuing a public statement:
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.
He also apologized for the disrespect his comments implied.
Monday, the 15-minute-long rant went on as Jones sat down with his Church advisor, Christopher Hudson and spoke openly about how he felt about his Church, God and the “Two and a Half Men” show in which he stars in as Jake Harper. Jones has been on the show since 2003.
Jones said Monday in the YouTube video:
Jake from ‘Two and a Half Men’ means nothing. He is a non-existent character. If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men.’ I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men’ and I don’t want to be on it.
Please stop watching. Please stop filling your head with filth, please. People say it’s entertainment … the fact that it’s entertainment … do some research on the effect of television on your brain and you’ll have a decision to make.
It’s bad news. A lot of people don’t like to think about how deceptive the enemy is.
Jones earn earns approximately $350,000 per episode and he stars in about 20 episodes a year; the show is currently in its 10th season. The “Two and a Half Men” show has had other difficulties with Charlie Sheen who left the show last year. For more on that story, click here.
