Angus T. Jones has just issued a statement apologizing, in the most tenuous sense, for making a video branding Two and a Half Men ‘filth’ then entreating viewers to switch off from the show that made him both rich and famous.

In his statement, Jones, 19, speaks up for his bosses on the CBS show, by saying: ‘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.

The document obtained by TMZ continues: ‘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.’

Without actually taking back anything he said, the teenager attempted to appease his cast:

‘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.’

Warner Bros has stated that although Jones is not written into the next two episodes, his absence was booked off his before his rant – and he is expected back on set next month.

Meanwhile, Christopher Hudson – the Seventh Day Adventist guiding Jones – denied that he was exploiting the actor, as the young star’s mother Carey fears.

Hudson, who is believed to be in his 40s, confirmed that he recorded the video in the actor’s trailer on the set of Two and A Half Men last week.

Jones – who makes $350,000 per episode playing Jake Harper – was seen urging fans to ‘turn off’ the show, saying it would damage their brains.

Why It Still Doesn’t Matter Whether Or Not Tony Soprano Lived

When “The Sopranos” ended in 2007 on a now-famous shot of its patriarch, Tony Soprano, sitting in a diner with his family, viewers cried foul. They were horrified by the ambiguity; they wanted to know if he lived, died or enjoyed drunkenly singing “Don’t Stop Believin’” as much as they did. The debate was resurrected […]

When You Mix ‘Mean Girls’ With British Politics, Amazingness Happens (Video)
