Nineteen-year-old Angus Jones has a very serious bone to pick with his employers. Despite being on the show “Two and a Half Men” since he was eight years old, Jones has now spoken out about how the “filth” of the show does not jive with his Christian values. A well-known child actor going up against a studio takes nerve, I tell you.
In what Gossip Cop reports as a Christian testimonial, Jones speaks out against the show on the “Forerunner Chronicles.” And his comments, specifically telling fans to turn off their TVs, will surely have him hearing from those who cut his checks:
“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,” continues Jones. “Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.”
He adds, “People say it’s just entertainment. 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.”
There has yet to be a comment from the CBS, the show’s network, or from Warner Bros., which produces “Two and a Half Men.” No word yet either on why Angus is still on a show that he claims to have such a deep disdain for — although pesky contracts tend to keep us in the places we loathe the most.
But given Jones’s strongly worded anti-endorsement of their product, his employers could surely find a couple of reasons to let him out of that predicament.
