Angus T. Jones Says ‘Two and a Half Men’ is ‘Filth’: ‘Please Stop Watching’ [Video]

Angus T. Jones, who has grown up on the Chuck Lorre comedy, says that he does not want to be on the show and pleads with viewers to stop watching it.

Angus T. Jones, who has grown up on the Chuck Lorre comedy, reveals that he does not want to be part of the show anymore and pleads with viewers to give up on watching it.

In a recent interview with the religious website Forerunner Chronicles, the actor spoke out against the show, calling it “filth.”

“If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men,'” Jones says in the video interview, which the website billed as “The Testimony of the Awakening of [a] star.”

“I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it, please stop filling your head with filth,” he continued.

“People say it’s just entertainment,” he said. “Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you, you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch on television. It’s bad news.”

The young star continued with his testimonial, suggesting that the ‘Two and a Half Men’ is part of the plan of “the enemy” -presumably Satan.

“If I am doing any harm, I don’t want to be here,” he explained. “I don’t want to be contributing to the enemy’s plan.”

Jones went on, adding: “…You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t. I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show.”

Warner Bros., the production company of “Two And A Half Men,” refused to comment on Jones’ interview.

However, according to Entertainment Wise, the young actor could act in such a way due to the reported breach in his contract with the show.

Most actors’ contracts quite often include disparagement clauses that don’t allow them to make any negative statements considering the show in public.

Still, it’s rare for any studio to enforce such a codicil as what can be considered disparagement is so subjective and, as one high-powered source says, “What moron would stab the show that pays him?”

Jones, alongside with his costars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer, renewed his contract in May for the show’s current season. He’s earning a reported $300,000 per episode.

Warner Bros. TV refused to reveal whether Jones’ deal includes such a boilerplate clause. And even if it did, it seems like WBTV would not forgive Jones for his comments bearing in mind that he is only 19 and also plays an integral role on the show, which is currently ranked as TV’s third most-watched comedy.

Jones’ interview mark the latest brouhaha for the veteran sitcom, which in addition to the Sheen debacle also saw former showrunner Lee Aronsohn fired after he came under fire for comments he made about female-driven shows at a Toronto screenwriting conference, writes The Hollywood Reporter.

‘Two and a Half Men’ co-creator Lee Aronsohn isn’t a fan of the current crop of female-centered comedies such as ‘Whitney’ and ‘2 Broke Girls’.

“Enough, ladies. I get it. You have periods,” he said in one of his interviews, applauding women like Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler and Tina Fey securing a voice to discuss formerly taboo subjects on TV.

“But we’re approaching peak vagina on television, the point of labia saturation,” Aronsohn added at the time.

Later, he clarified by insisting he was hardly one to take the moral high ground, explaining: “We do far too many fart jokes on ‘Two and a Half Men’. I’m the last person to judge.”
