“I’m concerned he’s being exploited by the church.”
Yeah, it’s not much, but just think for a second. She’s his mother, and they don’t have a terribly bad or wholly damaged relationship that we’re aware of, so just how much can she say without really throwing her kid under the bus? Can she honestly go ahead and say something like, “This little shit’s digging his own grave with a Lorne Michaels-brand spade?” or “My son is the Second Coming, maybe”? No, she can’t, because she doesn’t strike me as a Michael-or-Dina Lohan type. She is, however, a former criminal (yes, it gets better), so there is that. Here’s the dirt on Angus’s mother, Carey Jones, courtesy of the Daily Mail:
… His mother Carey … was arrested in 1992 for ripping the meter out of a taxi and then punching a police officer in the face while she was drunk.
Then in 1997 she was arrested on a burglary charge after a woman woke to find Carey in her living room.
Jones’ father Kelly, now 50, was arrested in 1986 for possession of marijuana and carrying an unlicensed .45-caliber handgun after he created a disturbance in a bar.
In 1997 Carey had Kelly arrested on an assault charge after he allegedly pulled her out of a car and pushed her to the ground. She later dropped the charge, but Kelly was ordered to complete an anti-violence class.
Also, I don’t know if you guys know this, but Angus’s mentor, Christopher Jones, who was the other dude in Angus’s ‘Two and a Half Men’-shaming video, is kind of crazypants. Jones has oft mentioned that he thinks President Obama is Hitler (incarnate? Because between you and me, those two boys look nothing alike), and that Jay-Z is a “devil-worshiping Freemason.” Hudson also claims that a gas shortage (a government-imposed gas shortage, mind you) could lead you to eat your baby, so yeah. This is some serious stuff, friends. Serious, serious stuff.
And God. Are there so few normal families out there? And by “normal,” I mean “non-abusive, non-jail-serving, and non-completely dysfunctional”? I don’t think I’m hoping for a lot here, guys. This poor kid—it’s no wonder that a confused nineteen-year-old in this kind of situation has no idea what to think about anything.
