Two and a Half Men Star Angus T. Jones Calls Show 'Filth'
Angus T. Jones of Two and a Half Men, gave a stunning rant, pleading with the show's fans to stop watching the hit sitcom.
“Please stop watching it. Stop filling your head with filth! Please!” Jones said.
America has watched Jones literally grow up on the program, from a chubby kid to a clean-cut young soldier.
But the 19-year old actor says his conversion to the Seventh-day Adventist Christian denomination is making him rethink his whole life.
“You can't be a god-fearing person and be on a show like that. I know I can't,” he said.
In a video posted on YouTube, Jones reveals he is trying to convert other people on Two and a Half Men.
“A few people from work have come to church and I am confident that I am there for a reason,” said Jones.
Now, he's under fire for trashing the show that pays him $8 million a year.
“If he's trashing his own show, he's trashing the other people on the show,” said Barbara Walters on The View.
Two and a Half Men is known for its bawdy humor. TV Guide business editor Steve Battaglio says that's the key to its success.
“That's why people watch the show. The show is a half hour of dirty jokes. Every episode, that’s the show,” said Battaglio.
On a recent episode, Jones’ character has an affair with guest star, Miley Cyrus. Jones says that in real life he's still a virgin. He says he found God last December.
“The only way I can describe it, is like being hugged by your most favorite person ever,” he said.
Jones made some of the videos in his own trailer on the set of Two and Half Men. With him, is a controversial Seventh-day Adventist Pastor, Christopher Hudson.
Hudson is known for rants against pop culture figures like Jay-Z and Rihanna.
This is just the latest controversy to hit Two and a Half Men. Charlie Sheen was famously booted from the show in 2011 after his notorious meltdown, and was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
The latest crisis is not expected to damage the show's popularity.
"As a matter of fact, controversy has only helped Two and a Half Men. It has only made more people watch it," said Battaglio.
