Angus T. Jones Issues Apology For Rant Against ‘Two and a Half Men’
‘Two and a Half Men‘ star Angus T. Jones, perhaps realizing that he had burned not only his meal ticket but everyone he is still contractually obligated to work with for the rest of this season, has issued a statement about the video where he called the show filth, a video which exploded across the internet yesterday.
Here is that statement:
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.
So he never intended to hurt his colleagues, but doesn’t walk away from the content of his message. What’s interesting is that many stars have expressed publicly or privately that they don’t like their meal ticket, and being ungrateful for work is a long standing tradition in Hollywood. ‘Two and a Half Men is in syndication and has already replaced one star, at this point it’s a money generating machine, so even with this tabloid-y event, it’s possible that the show could continue with or without Jones. But this certainly can’t help, nor what can be read between the lines.
