Angus T. Jones apologizes for telling the truth about 'Two And a Half Men'
Only a day after calling his TV show Two And a Half Men "filth" and telling people to "please stop watching" it in a video for a a Christian group, Angus T. Jones kinda-sorta apologized to the show's cast and crew in a statement. You're just reading it here now because he didn't say it until The Juice* was safe at home, hidden away from a world where so many people watch a show like Two And a Half Men.
"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," the 19-year-old said Tuesday, according to the Hollywood Reporter (watch the video above, starting around the 7:30 mark). "Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two And a Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past 10 years who have become an extension of my family."
The comments were met with the news that Jones' character Jake wouldn't be on the next two episodes being shot by the crew, but that was purely a coincidence. So far creator Chuck Lorre and CBS have kept completely mum on the subject. We'd like to think it's because they realize Angus is 19 and grew up working with Charlie Sheen.
Speaking of which, Sheen had something to say about the whole thing, telling People, "With Angus’ Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed." So Charlie Sheen, who was fired after a bender of drugs and wife-beating, is comparing Jones' realization that he's on a show full of infantile, misogynistic freaks that shouldn't be watched by anyone to the Heaven's Gate mass suicide? Wow, his FX show Anger Management must be funnier than we've heard.
