The comedy “Two and a Half Men” quite possibly could be cursed as now a second actor is speaking out against the show. Last year, Charlie Sheen was fired from the show for his comments against the producers. Now, Angus T. Jones, the actor who plays Jake, has spoken out against the show, according to TMZ.
In a video, Jones labels the show as ‘filth’ and pleads with viewers to stop watching it, claiming it contradicts with his Christian values. Jones is 19 and currently pulls down $350,000 per episode. The video is from the Forerunner Christian Church. He says in the video, “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.”
“Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. 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 and especially with what you watch on television … it’s bad news.”
“If I am doing any harm, I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be contributing to the enemy’s plan … You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t. I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the bible says and being on that television show.”
Jones said he became religious after his life went out of control, which included speeding tickets and drug use. Jones even said that while in high school he was using acid and smoking weed.
He has yet to be fired from the show but also has not quit. Sources for TMZ said that all of the show’s executives have seen Jones’ video. Neither Jones nor his representatives have contacted the executives of the show to express his thoughts to them.
