Angus T. Jones has backed off his comments regarding "Two and a "Half Men" being "filth" and that people shouldn't watch it.
Jones, 19, issued a statement Tuesday through his PR firm regarding his controversial comments toward the show he's been on since he was 10 years old.
"I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours," the statement said. "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."
Translation: You're nice people who have been possessed by Satan.
The statement went on: "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."
Translation: Please don't fire me until I finish paying for my mansion.
"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.
Translation: Co-workers, please don't set my car on fire.
"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."
Translation: I meant every word, but I'm too young to know how badly everyone would flip out about it.
Earlier Tuesday, Jones' former co-star Charlie Sheen weighed in on what he called Jones' "meltdown," opining that the CBS comedy is "cursed."
Well, at least now we know why Charlie Sheen is crazy. Though he'll need to come up with another excuse for all those years before he was on the show.
Jones is not scheduled to appear in the last two episodes of "Men," to be filmed before the show breaks for the holidays. His absence is reportedly not because of his comments, but because his character Jake recently joined the Army so has not been seen in every episode of Season 10.
No one is saying whether Jones' statements (cough, cough) will impact his future on the long-running comedy.
