Angus T. Jones has apologized for the comments he made earlier this week about his show, “Two and a Half Men.” Jones called the show ‘filth’ and pleaded with viewers to stop watching it. His initial comments came in a video that quickly went viral on Monday and by Tuesday, Jones had issued his apology through a statement from his PR firm. The statement was posted first by Deadline. We have the entire statement below:
“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 Half Men with whom I have worked over the past ten years and who have become an extension of my family.
Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.
I also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years. 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.
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.”
Early in the day on Tuesday, the former star of the show, Charlie Sheen, offered his opinions about how the show on CBS is “cursed.” Jones will not appear in the final two episodes being filmed prior to the show breaking for the holiday season. His lack of appearance was already written into the script because his character joined the Army and has not been in every episode of the season. It has nothing to do with his comments made earlier this week.
