One quality you need while working on Two and a Half Men? A sense of humor.

While at an investor conference on Tuesday, CBS president Leslie Moonves addressed the controversy surrounding Angus T. Jones publicly trashing the sitcom, calling it "filth" and saying he doesn't want to be a part of the show. Jones has since issued an apology.

During his speech, Moonves referred to Jones as "that kid" and made several zingers about the controversy.

Speaking at the 40th UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, Moonves jokingly referenced Jones, calling him "that kid on Two and a Half Men who makes $300,000 per episode to talk bad about me."

Jones' comments once again came up later when Moonves talked about a possible merger with Simon & Schuster book unit, saying "I don't have any kids calling me filthy in the publishing [space]."

A source recently revealed to E! News that it's likely Jones will be exiting Two and a Half Men at the end of the current season.

"You might see him for a few guest spots," the source said, adding that it's "likely" the 19-year-old will choose to go to college next year.
