By now you’ve all heard about or seen Angus T. Jones’s video rant about how bad Two and a Half Men is, how it’s filth and how nobody should watch the show.
What he said about Two and a Half Men is just a minute or so in a bizarre video released to the public. Angus talks about how he went to Christian school but found it hard for him to find the right church. In his search for a house of worship he was drawn to “black churches” and awkwardly talks about how he not only likes “black people” but isn’t afraid to use the word “black.” It’s very strange.
He then seems to have gotten involved with Christopher Hudson, a “homophobic, anti-Obama, conspiracy theorist” preacher, who interviewed Angus for his Forerunner Chronicles web series. That’s where this shocking video has come from. Angus’ affiliation with the church has caused his family concern, and he even talks about how members of his family have expressed that he’s involved with a “SDA (Seventh-day Adventist) cult” as he says in the video himself.
(7:40 in is when he starts his famous “Two and a Half Men is filth” rant.)
The Seventh-day Adventists has even come out to say that they are not affiliated with Christopher Hudson, the doomsday extremist preacher seen with Angus in the video.
Angus makes $350,000.00 per episode and it would seem like money is even stronger than Angus’ extreme religious views. Once the media picked up on this video and blasted it out to the world, Angus (or rather his management team) had second thoughts about the statements he made in the bizarre video and must have thought that he might loose his sweet gig because of this rant.
Angus then released a very special hand written and personal apology to the press.
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.
Haha, yeah…because we all know how many 19-year-old boys use phrases like “Without qualification.” Sounds more like his management team called in a PR firm or celebrity crisis handler to craft a proper statement of clarification and apology for Angus. (Notice how they repeatedly use the word continue… “the opportunity they have given and continue to give” and “the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.” The checks he will continue to cash.)
Who is to blame? Well, Charlie Sheen has an idea as to why Jones may have melted down, “I dare anyone to spend 10 years in the laugh-track that is Chuck Lorre’s hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami.” Yep, sounds like Charlie. At least we know that a clever PR team isn’t crafting HIS statements for him.
The Office stars Rainn Wilson & Craig Robinson released this funny spoof of Angus’ video rant.
Very funny but, I am actually concerned for Angus and his well being. This preacher is clearly taking advantage of his young impressionable mind and celebrity status to bring attention to his cause and notoriety for himself. There is no concern for Angus’ well-being, what this stupid web interview might do to his career, or how this thing could affect him in the future. I’m going to continue to monitor this situation because frankly, I’m a little obsessed with it.
