Angus T. Jones bad-mouthing 'Two and a Half Men?!'

Uh oh! "Two and a Half Men" star Angus T. Jones has now apologized for calling the CBS sitcom he's starred on for the last nine years "filth." 

In a statement to HLN, Jones backtracked on comments he made in a YouTube video detailing his newfound Christian faith that went viral Monday when he urged viewers to stop watching the CBS show. Two days after the video hit the Net, Jones says he can't address "every misstatement or misunderstanding," but he never meant any harm to his colleagues on the show. 

"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."

The 19-year-old actor, who reportedly gets paid $350,000 per episode, did not clarify his remarks on the video, in which he revealed he no longer wanted to be on the show. Instead, he praised the work of the cast and crew on the show, calling them "an extension of my family."

There is no word yet how Jones' comments will affect production of "Two and a Half Men" or the status of his job, but in a strange coincidence, Jones will not appear in the last two episodes of the sitcom before the holiday break, a plan that was in place long before his viral rant.

One person who is loving all the "Men" drama? Charlie Sheen, of course. The former "Two and a Half Men" lead actor  weighed in on the controversy, adding his own reasoning for the incident in telling HLN "With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show [2 1/2 Men] is cursed."

Sheen starred alongside Jones for eight years on the sitcom before being fired from the show last year after a series of public spats with "Men" creator, Chuck Lorre.

Jones must have taken a cue from Shee,n because in his statement he makes sure to apologize to his employers. "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."
