Agnus T. Jones, the boy actor for the CBS show Two and Half Men, is catching heat on Twitter for calling the show "filth" and bidding fans to tune out.
Fans primarily chewed the child star out for bad-mouthing his employer despite being paid a great deal of money for his role as Jake, a dopey boy living with two bachelors. Jones' 2010 contract reportedly allows him to be paid $7.9 million for two seasons plus a $500,000 signing bonus.
Nicki Schultz wrote, "Wow, #angustjones talk about biting the hand that feeds you…I don't watch your show, but it's given you everything. You should be grateful."
Katherine Wertheim tweeted, "#AngusTJones thinks his show #2.5Men is filth and no one should watch? Show him those conventions where ex-stars sign autographs for $."
Mark Read wrote,"Whats (SIC) with the trend of actors slating projects that helped keep them in work & make a name 4 themselves?!..Dont bite the hand..#AngusTJones"
Some ridiculed Jones' Godly testimony and urged him to keep it his self.
Erin Quill mocked, "SEE? When you raise your kid in a loving warm environment they become rabid right religiousy nuts."
Christopher tweeted, "Sad news. #AngusTJones went religious. #TwoAndAHalfMen seems to be able to screw you up in all directions. Hope he gets well soon!
Zach Erickson pleaded, "Dude Angus T. Jones, keep your personal life personal and keep it out of the work place man. #2.5Men. You are a good actor, don't blow it."
Jones disparaged his show on a two-part series video-taped for Forerunner Chronicles, a Seventh Day Adventist online publication. In the videos, Jones detailed his Christian testimony and his membership in Seventh Day Adventist church.
He told viewers "If you watch 'Two and a Half Men,' please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men. He continued, "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."
He also said he struggled with being both a Christian and a celebrity. He concluded, "You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. I know I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show so you go all or nothing."
Not all tweeters are ridiculing Jones. Ultimate Disciple wrote, "People are saying that #AngusTJones is biting the hand that feeds him...Not realizing that hand belongs to God. NOT MAN!"
Stephen Bivens shared, "When God gets a hold of someone there is no stopping it."
