Angus T. Jones told the truth. In a religious video posted on YouTube, the former child actor who’s the “half” man of the CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men” shocked the celebrity press by saying “I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.”
Calling this show “filth” is like calling your Christmas tree an evergreen. Yet about 14 million Americans still love filling their head with this filthy show, and they don’t want to be told what they’re doing.
It doesn’t surprise, then, that the pundits have turned on Jones, like the 19-year-old was having serious mental problems. The best was long-time castmate and all-around sleazeball Charlie Sheen declaring young Angus was having an “emotional tsunami.” You read that correctly: Charlie Sheen calling someone else a nut job.
The Jones video was posted Monday, and within 48 hours, his camp issued a statement apologizing for the disrespect to the dirty hands that feed him. It was expected. It was either that, or kiss your career bye-bye. It’s still not clear if he’ll be consigned to making independent Christian movies with Kirk Cameron.
