Star Issues New Statement After Slamming His Sitcom


Well that didn’t take long.

Angus T. Jones, who appeared in a video testimony and referred to the CBS sitcom he has starred in for nearly a decade as “filth” issued a statement about those remarks.

He doesn’t retract his earlier comments, saying he “cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding,” he does express love and appreciation for the cast and company of the hit sitcom:

“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.”

Jones was reportedly in his trailer on the Warner Brothers lot where the show is filmed when he urged fans to stop watching. He explained that he had been personally convicted about being part of the show, even going so far as to say he no longer wanted to be on the show.

Producers have yet to respond.

Jones’s salary on the show is somewhere in the neighborhood of $8 Million; he receives $350,000 per episode, although this season his character joined the Army so he has not been present in every episode. He isn’t due back on set until after the new year: he wasn’t scheduled to appear in the next two episodes being filmed before the end of this year.

What would you do if you were the producer of the show? Would you keep him on the show or accept the statement and ignore his previous rant?
