If you have a network show catching the attention of millions, it’s difficult to keep “haters” out of the mix. CBS’s Two and a Half Men has been in the public eye for nearly a decade, and has attracted plenty of negative attention during that time. Now one of the show’s original lead actors, Angus T. Jones, is joining the legion of haters against the sitcom. Strange, right?
While going through a testimony, talking about his newly found faith in God, Angus T. Jones described how much lack of it he has in a show which probably has been paying for his expensive private school tuition for awhile. In the middle of the interview he tells everyone to steer clear from the show, that even his own involvement with the widely popular show may be contributing to the “enemy’s plan.” Read the rest of his rant below:
“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.”
This isn’t the first time that one lead actor from this particular show has spoken up about his lack of faith in the show. The last time this happened it blew up in a big way when Charlie Sheen began publicly bashing the show runner Chuck Lorre while simultaneously dealing with substance abuse problems. As a result, he got fired, and was later replaced by Ashton Kutcher. If Lorre and company believe that Angus T. Jones’ words are threatening, it’s not like they can’t go ahead and find a replacement. But at this point, should this show continue anymore? After several seasons the “half man” is a full-grown adult. Perhaps it’s time for the CBS show to close shop on their television production.
Do you watch Two and a Half Men anymore?
