Angus T. Jones' very public "Two and a Half Men" outburst is the talk of Hollywood this week. At Wednesday's Hollywood Radio And Television Society Newsmaker luncheon, even Fox chairman Kevin Reilly weighed in on the controversy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reilly compared Jones' controversial statements with "American Idol" judge Nicki Minaj's latest feud with former judge Steven Tyler. "It’s part of the world we live in,” Reilly said. "You want stars to represent themselves, but sometimes they freestyle a little bit.”

Reilly reportedly pointed out that Minaj's "Idol" antics would be "good for [the network]," since it keeps the aging reality contest in the news and generates curiosity. However, he did point out that, in the case of Jones, “There’s a point where it can get out of control. [That] is where the PR people come in and tell Angus to apologize in a statement.”

Also on the luncheon's panel was Katherine Pope, president of television for Chernin Entertainment. According to THR, her concern was with the actor's work ethic. "Are they showing up for work?" she asked. "Everybody now has an outlet to express everything at any given moment, and that may change… [But] if the work isn’t impacted, everybody has their moments, and you let it pass."
