The mother of Two and A Half Men star Angus T Jones has spoken out to say he is being ‘exploited’ by his church after he branded his hit show ‘filth’ in an extraordinary religious rant.

Carey Jones, 42, stated she was worried for her famous son. ‘I’m concerned he’s being exploited by the church,’ she explained, but refused to comment further.

The 19-year-old – who makes $350,000 per episode playing Jake – was seen urging fans to ‘turn off’ in a new video for the Forerunner Chronicles.

In Angus Jones Testimony, he says: ‘If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching. I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it.’

Jones has been on the show since he was 10 and It is unclear if he has tried to quit the show. The exact details of his contract have yet to surface.

His comments are likely to attract ire from the show’s co-creator Chuck Lorre and his bosses at Warner Brothers, who are yet to comment.

The teen’s outburst continued: ‘Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say it’s just entertainment.

‘Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television and especially with what you watch on television … it’s bad news.’

He adds: ‘If I am doing any harm, I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be contributing to the enemy’s plan.

‘You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t.

‘I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the bible says and being on that television show.’

Jones gives his testimony sitting with a representative of The Forerunner Chronicles in his trailer on the Warner studio lot, where his series is filmed.

In the video the young star laughs nervously as he admits his worried family have likened his recent ‘awakening’ to the Seventh-day Adventist movement to joining a ‘cult’.

‘Of course all my family, not all my family, but some of my family were like “he’s going to a cult” trying to tell me to get out of there,’ said Jones.

‘But I didn’t feel like I was being fooled, I could study it for myself. Its there in the bible and there’s no evidence for the opposing views.’

Jones’ comments are just the latest crisis for the show, which was put in jeopardy when its original star Sheen was fired and replaced by Ashton Kutcher after attacking Chuck Lorre amidst a storm of bizarre behavior.

The show has since struggled to maintain its high ratings.
