“Two and a Half Men” is hit with controversy when Angus Jone’s, popular actor who plays Jake, suddenly has a change of heart about his show when he calls his show “filth” in a YouTube video because it doesnrt acknowledge the Christian faith.  In the video, Jones admitted that he no longer wants to be part of the series because of that.

“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,” Angus said. “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 on television. It’s bad news.”

Jones most likely knew what risk he was going to face for speaking out against the sitcom he is in especially in Hollywood, which doesn’t often acknowledge the Christian faith or any faith in that matter. Many viewers believe that Angus will be fired just like Charlie Sheen was after speaking against his sitcom and its creator Chuck Lorre. Charlie Sheen isn’t a stranger to controversial statements about his ex-sitcom he states after hearing of Jone’s video, “With Angus’s Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed.”

But later on Angus Jone’s apologizes’ to the cast and colleagues of “Two and a Half Men” after realizing that what he said was disrespectful towards them.

“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,” says Jones.

It’s unsure if Angus will be even returning to the show after all of what he has said. We will just have to wait to see in season 11 of “Two and a Half Men.”
