It was only a matter of time before ex “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen (who we can only imagine is sitting back with a tub of Jiffy Pop watching the show explode in Chuck Lorre’s face) spoke up about the recent shenanigans surrounding Angus T. Jones’ pleas for viewers to stop tuning in to the sitcom.
In a recent statement that Sheen gave to People magazine, he relayed his thoughts that the long running CBS series was the victim of a hex by some unknown higher power.
His exact words—because, let’s face it, Charlie Sheen is a dish best served unfiltered—were:
“With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed.”
The “Anger Management” actor was referring to a San Diego-based UFO religion called Heaven’s Gate that famously was linked to a 39-member group suicide in 1997.
As we previously reported, Jones, a now born again member of the Forerunnner Christian Church, publically denounced “TAHM” as “filth” in an online video, telling audiences to save their brains and souls, and stop watching.
“If I am doing any harm, I don't want to be here,” he says in the clip. “I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan…You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't.”
The stunt has left the 19-year-old’s $350K an episode future on the show very much up in the air…
Charlie—as you likely recall, unless you’re Charlie Sheen himself—was also subject to a high profile exit from the sitcom in 2011 after volatile back-and-forths with Lorre and a very public breakdown.
So, Chuck… If you’re out there, do Angus and Charlie and God and the rest of us all a favor: Kill the show and break the curse already!
