TV Star Converts, Tells Viewers to Stop Watching His 'Filth' Show
"Two and a Half Men" star Angus T. Jones shares surprising testimony on YouTube.
The youngest member of CBS's "Two and a Half Men" soon could be walking away from the raunchy show after 10 years—and he's urging other viewers to do the same.
In a YouTube video posted by Forerunner Christian Church, 19-year-old Angus T. Jones calls the show "filth" and encourages viewers to stop watching. Jones says he began to doubt his role on the show—where he earns an estimated $350,000 per episode—after converting to Christianity. (Jones is now a Seventh-day Adventist, reports RNS. CNN explores the denomination's emphasis on purity.)
"I'm not okay with what I'm learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show," Jones stated.
He also urged viewers, "If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching ... Please stop filling your head with filth."
According to the Chicago Tribune, "The CBS network and Warner Bros Television, which makes the comedy, both declined to comment on Monday on Jones's remarks."
