"Two and a Half Men" has had its fair share of critics, but now one of the sitcom's stars has joined the bandwagon.
Angus T. Jones, the 19-year-old who plays Jake Harper on the hit CBS show, spoke out against "Two and a Half Men" in a new online video and called the sitcom "filth."
Jones criticized the show that made him famous in an interview with the religious website Forerunner Chronicles. The comments come around the 7:45 mark in the YouTube video below.
"If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men,' " Jones said. "I'm on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it, please stop filling your head with filth."
Jones continues on and said that a show like "Two and a Half Men" can be seen as simple entertainment, but the negative things it brings into people homes through the television can be dangerous and not worth the time spent watching.
"People say it's just entertainment," Jones said. "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, especially with what you watch on television. It's bad news."
He even goes on to denounce his "Two and a Half Men" character by name.
"Jake from 'Two and a Half Men' means nothing. He is a nonexistent character," Jones said with a smile.
The CBS sitcom has faced many changes recently ever since the public breakdown of star Charlie Sheen and his departure from the series. Following Sheen's exit, the show brought in Ashton Kutcher as the new main character and has continued to enjoy high ratings despite waning critical response.
