Here’s the deal. The kid who’s grown up (and grown rich) over the last 9 years playing Jon Cryer’s son on Two and a Half Men found Jesus and lost some street cred.
The kid had a religious awakening and made a video distributed online by a Christian church in which he pleaded with viewers to stop watching his show and “filling your head with filth.”
Look, I’m not counting anyone else’s money, but this is one rich kid who seems like an ingrate to me (and maybe lots of others). Where does this geeky kid with a wallet the size of Oklahoma come off telling TV viewers to please change the channel?
So, today, probably after a closed door session with producers that rivals something out of The Shining, teen turd Angus T. Jones apologized, saying, “I’m sorry if my remarks showed indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and lack of appreciation of my opportunities.”
Ya know what I say? Too late twerp. We all heard what you said and don’t believe one word of your “apology.”
Half the world would give their right arm for the chance to read scripts, show up on set for 9 years and make boatloads of money by the time they’re 19 (or 75 for that matter).
I’m not sayin’ it’s wrong to find religion. It’s just wrong to bite the hand that feeds you. And Angus took a very big bite. A T-Rex size bite.
The “half man” has a year left on his contract and chances are real good he’s done with show biz.
From a PR standpoint, the apology was necessary, but dumb, and there’s nothing I would suggest the kid do except not talk to the press for the next year and maybe give away all his money to charity.
And ya know what the T. in Angus T. Jones stands for? Turncoat. It’s curtains for the kid.
