Angus T. Jones is a sorry man, sorta. On Monday, Angus went on a rant  in a video for his Christian Church, calling his TV show ‘Two and a Half Men’ “filth”, and begged his fans to quit watching the show. Jones, who recently became a born-again Christian, said in a video for the Christian group Forerunner that he no longer wanted to be on Two and a Half Men. “Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth,” he urged. The apology he’s released below didn’t exactly retract this sentiment.

Since the video went public (watch it below) everyone’s kind of quietly been waiting around to see if he would show up back for work on the show. Rumor has it, he hasn’t been to work yet. Here’s his apology:

I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours. While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear.

Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked over the past ten years and who have become an extension of my family.

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. 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.

I also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years. I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.

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.

So it’s an apology….. sort of. It’s an apology along the lines of “if I hurt your feelings, I’m sorry,” which isn’t really an apology, if you ask me.

I’m still waiting anxiously to hear what creator and producer Chuck Lorre has to say on the matter!

One person who has weighed in, unsurprisingly, is Charlie Sheen. Here’s what he has to say on the matter. “With Angus’s Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed.” He went on to tell TMZ, “Obviously, not having been there for some time, the Angus T. Jones that I knew and still love is not the same guy I saw on YouTube yesterday.”

He adds, “I dare anyone to spend ten years in the laugh-track that is Chuck Lorre’s hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami.”
