The 19-year-old Two and a Half Men
star has spoken out against the CBS sitcom in a manner that's sure to ruffle some network feathers.
"If you watch Two and Half Men
, please stop watching Two and Half Men
," Jones says in a video
posted on YouTube by TheForerunner777 (watch it below) in which the actor discusses his Christian faith. "I'm on Two and Half Men
and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."
"People say it's just entertainment," he continues. "Do some
research on the effects of television in your brain and I promise you,
you'll have a decision to make when it comes to ... what you watch on
television. It's bad news."
Jones, who in 2008 was paid roughly $1.2 million
a season, then references "the enemy" and how someone like him cannot appear on a TV show. (Jones has played Jake Harper on Men
"A lot of people don't like to think about how deceptive the
enemy is," says Jones. "There's no playing around when it comes to
eternity ... People will see us and be like, 'I can be a Christian and
be on a show like Two and a Half Men
.' You can't. You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't."
On the subject of his series, Jones concludes, "I'm not okay
with what I'm learning [about] what the Bible says and being on that
television show. You go all or nothing."
