Angus T. Jones (Two and a Half Men) calls his show ***FILTH*** and urges people to stop watching this show!
Angus T. Jones, who's been attending the Voice of Prophecy Seventh-day Adventist church in Los Angeles in recent months, slammed the series during a videotaped testimonial for the religious organization Forerunner Chronicles.
"If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men," Jones says earnestly in the clip. "I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."
Jones goes on to call the show "bad news."
"People say it's just entertainment," he says in the clip. "Do some research on the effects of television and your brain and I promise you you'll have a decision to make."

I have to agree that this show has passed adult humor into third grade vulgarity and it is not funny and at times is really garbage.
However, this kid has made an obscene amount of money from this show and I am sure his disgust does not include sacrificing his salary this season. They should just can him. I hope he is ready for a career on low rated reality TV.

He actually is attractive since he's grown up, gotten tall, and gotten thin. And he IS talented.
But what a shame to hear that he's also a loon. Good thing he's been making all that money, because his career is now over (which is most likely would have been when the show ends, anyway).
Maybe he can join Kirk Cameron in some of his projects.

He was exposed to too much and now he's going head first into the opposite extreme. We've all seen this before.
His message would be better received with a different tone. A self-righteous tone will just shame the people who are watching it and isn't the point to get them to listen, if you really think it's filth that should be watched? It's ego-driven. If he calmed down and reasonably explained why he feels that way without the over the top, attention-whoring finger pointing, it would give people something to drink about and consider, instead of being put on the defensive. But then, that's not the point.

However, that kid is speaking way out of turn. He's immature and has turned into a big fucking religious know-it-all, kind of like Kirk Cameron did the last couple of seasons of 'Family Ties' when the rest of the cast hated him and prosletizing.
There are other people involved who may need their job on 'Men' such as wardrobe, stage crew, etc. But if you don't want to be on a show, fine, then give up the money, your life of privilege, celebrity and ask to be let out of your contract.

DJ was coming in late after school and Roseanne was concerned that he had fallen in with a bad crowd but Darlene found out that he had been going to church. Meanwhile a mistake with the delivery men left the restaurant with an extra oven and a moral crisis for Roseanne underscored by DJ's newfound faith.

I would just like to add my two cents worth to agree with the other posters who brought up the fact that that show has made him a millionaire. I think there is some passage in the Gospels of the New Testament where a rich, young man comes to Jesus and asks him how he can be saved (whatever that is supposed to mean) and Jesus replies that he should sell all his belongings and give all his money to the poor and then follow him. Until Mr. Jones even makes a slight gesture toward that end, his words about "filth" are empty. He is still young though and at the age where he is searching for something to believe in. I will wait until he is in his 40s, at the latest, and then see what he is up to and believes in; if he is still a millionaire and spouting this stuff then he really is a fool.

This is a rebellious teenage outburst. Of course he's going to swing all the way in the other direction.

And that canned laugh track the producer uses is the same annoying one he uses on his other sitcom "The Big Bang Theory." They say a joke, laugh track, another joke, laugh track -- and so on. Someone is sitting in the control room, reading the script and turning a knob to inject the laugh track.

r98, he's certainly got the redneck pedigree. The big difference is that Renfro was cute as a pre-teen discovery in The Client & was marketed as a sex symbol by his early teens. Rumors abound of underage sexual abuse by Bryan Singer & his cronies circa Apt Pupil. So a kid from a poor background with suspect parenting predisposed to having issues suddenly has money, fame, teen idol sex symbol status & may have been abused. At least Angus is likely only dealing with a couple of those factors (poor background with suspect parenting, early riches). Hopefully he won't end up in & out of jail & then dead of a drug overdose at 25.

Your logic makes no sense r113. The group he is proudly part of is virulently bigoted against gay people. Absolutely he can be judged for that, he is choosing that a group he wants to belong to and whose dogma he wants to believe.

R118, He's just a kid, and some of the reactive comments and predictions about him as a person are, quite frankly, disgusting. Everyone is bigoted against something, and he didn't viciously attack anyone, as far as I know. No one has to agree with it, but all anyone has in life is to find their own way. Whether he's currently lost along that way is no one's concern but his, and possibly his parental units.

I was in a Seventh Day Adventist mental facility. They would drum out gay patients and their therapists would make it clear that being gay was not acceptable, and this was(literally) a prestigious institution at the time. I remember when they outed a patient to his parents before kicking him out. It was a horrifying thing to witness. I took it upon myself, as a damn patient, to counsel the gay kids not to say a word about it to their therapists.

People should stop watching it because it is a piece of shit. It stopped being funny around 4 years ago while Sheen was still on. No sitcom should go past 5 or 6 years. The kid is no longer funny because he is grown up and the title makes no sense; plus he is just stupid now. Jon Cryer plays a repulsive loser and moocher who the audience is supposed to believe would have such a hot girlfriend.

R100 - I would take being exposed to Charlie Sheen nutiness to these fundie church cults. Charlie is just a bipolar drunk who is very entertaining; this church will be the ruin of this kid.

R121, he's not a kid. He's an adult who has released a video to the public about his newfound cult. He's as fair game as Mitt Romney or Donald Trump or any other rich adult man who makes public declarations.

He is probably losing much money over this, so there is no hypocrisy. You can not blame him for signing up for the show when he was 10, so this isn't even a "Why did you do it then?" Katherine Heigl situation. Of course he should donate for charity, unfortunately the cult is helpfully going to take his money.
This is his way of dealing with his fucked up childhood, much like drugs are for so many others. Could be better, could be worse, depends.

Suggestion for Chuck Lorre: ditch Angus and replace him with Lindsay Lohan (as Ashton's long lost relative). Rename it "Two men and a crack ho". The ratings instantly go up, Lindsay is already in character, and you can pay her in 8-balls.

r127, that is untrue. Actually, Jesus only told one person, a rich young ruler, to sell his possessions, only because Jesus knew the man's hearts and thoughts and knew that the man valued his possessions over following Christ. Jesus exposed the man's inability to place God over things of this world. Obviously, other people followed and believed in Jesus who were not asked to sell their possessions, including the disciples.

Like the large majority of Christian churches in the world, Seventh Day Adventists believe and teach the Bible, which says any sexual activity outside of heterosexual marriage is sin. So, if you think that makes them antigay, so be it. They believe gay people and all unmarried heterosexual people should be celibate.

Yuck, r140, are you one of those prosperity gospel people that think Jesus advocated for great wealth? Take a look at modern American Christianity if you believe that has anything remotely to do with Christianity. Jesus did have his disciples leave everything behind to follow him. They traveled lightly dependent on the kindness of others to feed and lodge them. The entire life of Christ is one spent in and devoted to the virtues of poverty.

Jesus hates losers like you, R142 . Read the Parable of the Talents…money=success, success=drive, drive=devotion. If you can't get out there and make a few bucks, don't expect Jesus to save your worthless ass from the Hell you so rightly deserve.

Can you even begin to imagine the shitstorm that descended on this kid (and his agent) in the last 48 hours? Think how many lawyers, network execs, and studio execs have been involved here.
They probably just loaded the Charlie Sheen lawsuits and did a search and replace to insert "ANGUS JONES" everywhere the documents said "CHARLIE SHEEN."
Of course knowing Hollywood, he probably got a bump to $50,000 per episode and extra spiffs on the syndication and DVD sales to keep his mouth shut. No doubt that black preacher dude also has a development deal at Warner at this point.

All he did was express his new religious views and correctly state he would be a hypocrite if he continued being in the show. He said he no-longer wants to be on so they should let him go, but a lot of people's livelihoods will be affected, I guess.

There was nothing offensive or spiteful about the way he did this. I'm also noticing he apologised specifically to the cast and crew, not for what he said. He'll leave and the show's demise will be welcome.

Apparently, Christopher Hudson, his new "mentor" (I emailed you three weeks ago, and golly gee, you're already in LA!) has nothing to do with the Seventh Day Adventists, and he's a nasty bit of work in his own right:
[quote]the actor’s spiritual mentor is a controversial figure who has long been waging a religious war on the entertainment industry and liberal America. In 2009, he gained notoriety after releasing a documentary on YouTube called The Jay-Z Deception, in which he accused the rapper of being a devil-worshipping Freemason. He also has declared masturbation a sin and referred to President Obama’s health-care plan as a “carbon copy” of Hitler’s health-care policies. In a recent scaremongering video, Hudson said New York City’s post-Hurricane Sandy gas shortage was a harbinger of a food-shortage crisis and cannibalism, referencing a “similar” event in the Bible when the city of Jerusalem was seized by the Roman armies in 70 A.D: “It was so severe that women began to cannibalize their own children. Your baby may start looking like a chicken wing.”
