London - Charlie Sheen thinks Angus T. Jones's criticism of Two And A Half Men is understandable because it is an “emotional tsunami”.

The Anger Management actor - who was fired from the hit sitcom in March 2011 after slamming the show's creator Chuck Lorre - has again hit out the TV executive for running a “hive of oppression”.

He told TMZ: “I dare anyone to spend 10 years in the laugh-track that is Chuck Lorre's hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami.

“Obviously, not having been there for some time, the Angus T. Jones that I knew and still love is not the same guy I saw on YouTube yesterday.”

Angus, 19, branded the show “filth” earlier this week and urged people not to watch the programme because it goes against his religious beliefs.

However, he has now apologised for his comments and insists he holds the show and the people who work on it in the “highest regard”.

He said: “I apologise if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that.

“I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two And A Half Men with whom I have worked over the past 10 years and who have become an extension of my family.”

The actor currently earns almost $8-million for each season of the show. - Bang Showbiz
