Angus t Jones

Two and A Half Men’s Angus T. Jones Tries to Recant His Statement with an Apology. Too Late Buddy!

Just 24 hours ago, I was writing the story behind Angus T Jones attack on the show that basically made him.  24 hours ago, a salary of $350,000 an episode was not good enough for him.  That is more than 3 times the salary of a person with a six figure income.  This 19 year old made this per episode.

Just in case you missed the rant, here is a portion of what Angus had to say,

“I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men’ and I don’t want to be on it, If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ 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, especially with what you watch.”

Someone must have smacked some sense into him, because today he is trying to do a complete 180.  Jones released an apology today in a feeble attempt to backtrack.  In the statement he expressed the following,

 “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 and over the past ten years 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.”

Charlie Sheen was quick to take this opportunity to express his opinion stating that the show is cursed!  In his comment, Sheen throws a reference to Hale-Bopp which is the comet that the ultra-religious Heavan’s Gate crew thought an alien space craft was following.  Sheen says

“With Angus’ Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed,”

Angus’ apology is somewhat disappointing but predictable.  With a star like Agnus comes a publicist, a manager and an entourage all that wouldn’t exist without Angus and/or Two and a Half Men.  This statement was written for him and I assure you he was forced to make it.

Angus managed to bite the hand that fed him and sh*t where he eats all at the same time.  Instead of trying to be a televangelist-toughguy he should have used his brain.  Instead of pissing away a job that pays $350K an episode he should be thinking how much good that money could do.  I don’t fault him as much as I fault his camp. They got fat and lazy spending his money and before they knew it, he was loco.

Honestly after he turned 13, he was kind of corny on the show anyway.

Still no words from Chuck Lorre, CBS or Jon Crier, which probably isn’t a good thing.   When Lorre speaks – everyone tends to listen.  I will be staking this one closely.
