Former Two and a Half Men co-star Charlie Sheen has broken his silence about Angus T. Jones' recent video, in which the young star called the CBS comedy "filth" and urged viewers to stop watching the show.
"With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed," the Anger Management star told People. Sheen is referencing the 1997 group suicide that saw 39 members of the Heaven's Gate cult kill themselves hoping to reach an alien space craft that was following the Hale-Bopp comet.
Sheen of course had his own meltdown nearly two years ago when he went on an erratic media tour bashing show creator Chuck Lorre. Sheen was eventually fired and replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
Sheen isn't the only one speaking out about Jones' comments. Rainn Wilson spoofed the video, calling The Office "filth," while sitting next to co-star Craig Robinson. "Dwight from The Office is nothing, okay? The Office is nothing, all right? If you watch The Office, please don't watch The Office. I'm on The Office. It's filth... that filth will rot your brain."
Warner Bros. Television, which produces Two and a Half Men, continues to not comment on Jones' employment status, though a source says the CBS sitcom has two remaining episodes to film before the show goes on holiday hiatus. Jones doesn't appear on either, but that could be a coincidence as both were written long before Jones' outburst.
