Child Star Angus Jones Trashes ‘Two And A Half Men’ For The Sake Of His Christian Values

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.

    He took the money, didn’t he?

  • chickadee

    Now he has the opportunity to put his money where his mouth is and accept the consequences for his beliefs. I can respect him if he doesn’t weasel around his actions to keep drawing a paycheck.

      I’m not sure that it’s quite that simple though, he’s probably on a contract so he just can’t up and leave. He also started on the show before he had a chance to develop his opinions and beliefs.

    • chickadee

      I’m not saying he shouldn’t honor his contract. I’m saying that he shouldn’t start redefining what he said or what he meant in order to keep his paycheck rolling. They could easily write him out of the show, which, according to his statement, woyld make him happy. What I am saying is that I hope he doesn’t hurriedly decide that the money is more important than his words in the event that he could be fired.

    • once upon a time

      Ah, gotcha. Yes, I concur.

  • ipsedixit010

    I give the kid credit for speaking out, however, it seems a bit hypocritical to criticize a show as against your values while still taking a paycheck.

    I bet this creates an awkward work environment. I applaud him for standing up for his beliefs, but if it’s such filth, why is he still working there?

    • nevilleross

      Because he’s a hypocrite and a lazy twit and still needs the jing? That’s the only thing I can say about that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/courtney.wooten Courtney Lynn

      Well, he is 19. Beginning of the “post-adolescent idealistic phase” who thinks they’re going to change the world.

  • once upon a time

    Kirk Cameron did it!

    • nevilleross

      Kirk was/is a hypocrite and an ass, just like this guy. If he can’t stand the ‘values’ of this show, then he should leave the show and get a gig on Christian fundie TV that’s more to his liking.

      If you pay for a whore they have to stay a whore? Nice sentiment.

    • nevilleross

      Since when is being an actor a whore, you fundie moron? Go back to masturbating over the Bible like you usually do.

    • http://profiles.google.com/arborliberatas Benjamin Coker

      Since when does calling filth, filth make one a hypocrite you amoral putz?

  • AntitheistsAnonymous

    When this kid decides to give away everything he made from this show then I will respect him. Right now he’s only proving that he’s a hypocrite.

  • Justme

    Actions speak louder than words.

  • kinikia

    At 19 he is still very immature. Does he not realize how his comments are affecting the rest of the cast? Not to mention the people behind the scenes. There has to be a lot of tension on the set now. His comments could put all those people out of jobs. Is he even thinking about that? If he is still under contract then he should just keep his comments to himself till he can quit the show. If not under contract then he should get out now if he hates it so much and let his church support him. It’s really bad business to bite the hand that feeds you.

      That are also profiting from filth? Boo-hoo, whoah is them.

      Maybe someone should be pointing out how he was exploited by this industry for nearly half his life?

    Sounds like he is going the same way as Kirk Cameron. Kirk ended up without a career unless you count creationist videos.
    You’re 19 years old kid; see if can get out of your contract and do something else with your life. You got lots of time. Don’t be like Kirk Cameron.
