A day after Two and a Half Men co-star Angus T. Jones publicly lambasted his own show as "filth," former star Charlie Sheen has issued his own statement on the young actor's religious rant.
Speaking exclusively to People, Sheen said on Tuesday, "With Angus' Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed." For those who may not recall, the Heaven's Gate cult committed group suicide in 1997 in an attempt to board an alien spacecraft they believed was following the Hale-Bopp comet.
On Monday, Angus T. Jones appeared in a YouTube video alongside controversial religious leader Christopher Hudson to speak about his newfound Christian faith. The titular "half man" on hit sitcom Two and a Half Men, Jones described the CBS show as "filth" and begged God-fearing viewers to stop watching it. At one point, the 19-year-old actor even claimed that he no longer wanted to be on the show. His wish will be granted for now, as Jones will not appear in the next two episodes to be filmed before the holiday break. However, this is a coincidence because his character Jake is in the Army and isn't featured in every episode. Sources indicate that the show's producers have not yet spoken to the young actor about his comments.
No stranger to public meltdowns, Sheen made headlines in 2011 when he engaged in a heated feud with series creator Chuck Lorre and was fired from the show. Following his departure, Ashton Kutcher joined Jones and co-star Jon Cryer to complete the Two and a Half Men trifecta.
While I agree that the show is pure trash, it's hypocritical for Jones to continue to take a $300,000-per-episode paycheck. Do you think Two and a Half Men is cursed?
