Things have been silent since drama struck yet again on the long-running CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men” when actor Angus T. Jones urged fans to boycott the show.
But—according to the network’s higher up Les Moonves—the incident is no big deal compared the persistent headaches that the show dealt with when Charlie Sheen was the star.
In a recent statement given to celebrity tracker TMZ, the network honcho spoke up and his statements could be summarized with a shoulder shrug.
“I don’t think [the Angus situation has] been quite resolved,” said Moonves, “but after going through what we went through with Charlie Sheen, it’s been a piece of cake.”
According to the report, Moonres has renamed Angus as “that kid on 'Two And A Half Men' who’s getting paid $300,000 per episode to talk bad about me.”
Angus, as we previously reported, spoke out against the show for its very non-Christian message.
“If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop. 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 said in an online video for Forerunner Chronicles.
He has since gone on the record with a public apology.
The network and Warner Bros. has apparently not decided how to discipline the grown up child star yet.
Consistent with his hot-blooded wild man's reputation, Charlie Sheen hasn’t been silent on the matter either, recently telling People mag that the bad news streak for “TAHM” is no accident.
“With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown,” he said. “It is radically clear to me that the show is cursed.”
