Does Angus T. Jones really think that Two and a Half Men is filth, or have we all just been Punk’d? The young actor recently caught heat for some rather controversial statements made in a Christian testimony video. But now, following media backlash, Angus is easing up a bit and thanking costars such as Ashton Kutcher and Miley Cyrus for their constant support.
Don’t bite the hand that feeds you may be an apt cliche for the current Angus T. Jones situation. Like Charlie Sheen, Angus T. Jones decided to trash the show that made him rich and famous, although Angus’ reason for said trashing was somewhat different than that of his “winning” former cast mate.
Of course, as with most celebs who make the mistake of spewing their opinions all over the internet, Angus has since backpedaled, apologizing to those he may have offended in his testimonial. In a recent statement, Angus explained: “I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours. While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. 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.”
Angus then added that the cast and crew had, over the years, become an extension of his family. “I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.”
The cast of Two and a Half Men may be a family, but with bashing from the likes of Angus T. Jones and Charlie Sheen, it’s a dysfunctional one at best. Angus summed up a statement likely
written heavily influenced by PR with the following: “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.”
It’s kinda hard to believe that Angus T. Jones “never intended that” when he expressly called the show filth and told people to stop watching it. Do you think his apology is genuine? Leave a comment and let us know!
