Three cheers for “Two and a Half Men” Star Angus T. Jones for calling out the crap he’s been a part of for much of his life as a child television star.
I watch very little TV anymore, mostly because it’s a time waster and a bunch of garbage. More and more Americans are following suit as TV viewership (and ownership) is declining. In adulthood, I finally understood my father’s rightful attacks against TV when I was a kid and he stopped me from mindlessly, endlessly watching, limiting my TV viewing time. I was lucky that unlike so many parents, mine didn’t commit malpractice by using TV as a babysitter.
“Two and a Half Men” is one of the worst shows on broadcast TV. It’s disgusting, heavily sexual, stupid, and inane. And yet it remains, sadly, one of the most successful, highly-rated shows on television. And so I applaud the show’s younger star, Jones, for finally waking up about the filth he (and the rest of Hollywood) are perpetrating on America. Sadly, the damage of decades of TV garbage and defining deviancy and morality down has already taken its irreparable toll on America, and it’s too late.
Still, Jones–who has become a religious Christian–deserves credit and respect for publicly calling himself out for what he’s been a part of for so many years and what is basically is TV family, especially at his young age. It takes a lot of courage because he’ll probably never work in Hollywood again for saying so, and he knows it. Some of the attacks against him for saying this have been worse than some of the attacks on the nutty Charlie Sheen, formerly of the same show.
“Two and a Half Men” star Angus T. Jones is under fire for criticizing the show — even going so far as to call it “filth” — in an online video in which he professes his religious beliefs.
“Jake from ‘Two and a Half Men’ means nothing. He is a nonexistent character,” the 19-year-old actor says of his character on the hit CBS program. “If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men.’ I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men’ and I don’t want to be on it.”
Jones appears in the video seated next to televangelist Christopher Hudson, whose sermons appear in YouTube videos called “The Forerunner Chronicles.”
“Please stop filling your head with filth, please. . . .” Jones said.
Here’s the full video of his appearance on the Christian Forerunner show:
Part of what Jones is upset about is his interaction with the skanky Miley Cyrus (or as we call her on this site, “Miley Virus”) on the show. Jones plays a U.S. Army soldier who returns home and quickly falls into bed with Cyrus. Here’s the video of this Shakespearian masterpiece:
Yup, utter crap. Jones is doing America a favor by calling this what it is.
