Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones apologized for statements he made to a black church criticizing his show as “filth” and urging viewers not to watch.
Jones, 19, appeared to be self-assured when he sat in front of a camera at the Forerunner Christian Church and said, “Please stop watching Two and a Half Men… Please stop watching it, and filling your head with filth.”
The reaction from his bosses at CBS and Warner Brothers was not made public, but Jones apologized Tuesday in a statement on gossip blog TMZ.
“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,” Angus T. Jones said in the statement. “I never intended that.”
Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones had an epiphany one day. Not content to star alongside Ashton Kutcher on the long-running hit show Two and a Half Men, Jones set off in pursuit of the real meaning of life — which he figured he would find inside a black church. His search led him to the Forerunner Christian Church, where parishioners took him in and immediately hit record on a video camera.
What follows is a rambling 14-minute testimonial by the 19-year-old actor who declares his love for black people and encourages his fans to stop watching the show.
