BALTIMORE, Md. — The youngest star of “Two and a Half Men” is calling the show “filth” and urging viewers to stop watching it.

In a new video originally posted on the religious website, the teenage star Angus Jones, who makes $350,000 per episode, talks about how he found religion and why his new beliefs don’t jive with the hit CBS show.

“Jake from ‘Two and a Half Men’ means nothing. He is a nonexistent character,” Jones says in the video above, referencing his character from the show. “If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men.’ I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men’ and I don’t want to be there. Please stop filling your head with filth.

“People say that it’s just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make about the television and what you watch on the television.”

Representatives for “Two and a Half Men” were not commenting on the videos as of Tuesday morning, but badmouthing your own T.V. show is typically frowned upon by entertainment executives.
