Through his PR firm, Jones has now released an apology for incident to Deadline, saying sorry "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":
Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked over the past ten years and who have become an extension of my family. Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.
Lucky for Jones, he's going to be spared the immediate awkwardness of having to face all those coworkers after this fuss -- according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jones happens to not be scheduled to appear in either of the two episodes remaining to be shot before the holiday hiatus, a plan that was in place before his video became viral.
