Jim Carrey Shoots Off His Mouth About Gun Violence

June 24, 2013 by  

Comedian Jim Carrey caused a firestorm in March when he released the anti-gun video “Cold Dead Hand.” Now, the loudmouthed actor is once again making headlines for spouting off about gun violence.

Referencing the massacre in Newtown, Conn., Carrey took to Twitter to condemn the upcoming film “Kick-Ass 2,” in which he plays a vigilante named Colonel Stars and Stripes:

Comic book writer Mark Millar, who created the characters upon which the “Kick-Ass” films were based, responded to Carrey on his blog:

As you may know, Jim is a passionate advocate of gun-control and I respect both his politics and his opinion, but I’m baffled by this sudden announcement as nothing seen in this picture wasn’t in the screenplay eighteen months ago. Yes, the body-count is very high, but a movie called Kick-Ass 2 really has to do what it says on the tin. A sequel to the picture that gave us HIT-GIRL was always going to have some blood on the floor and this should have been no shock to a guy who enjoyed the first movie so much.

Ironically, Jim’s character in Kick-Ass 2 is a Born-Again Christian and the big deal we made of the fact that he refuses to fire a gun is something he told us attracted him to the role in the first place.

“Kick-Ass 2” opens Aug. 16. Here’s the trailer:

    I believe in gun safety, but half of these people want to take guns away from everyone. I’m a firm believer
    n the constitution. If Jim wants to take guns away, i will never support his movies again.

    Mr. Carrey Is from Canada. So, therefore he has a right to voice his opinion in the United States, but has NO say about our Constitution, since he is not a citizen.

    Actors make a fortune being a usually fictional character. I’ve had many friends in the business. Although my friends , they haven’t a clue as to the content of the Constitution nor the Declaration of Independence. They’re vain , self absorbed, narcistic and closed minded.They actually believe there own press a a self fulfilling professy. Facts and educated opinions of others mean nothing to them.They’re the last to know if at all that they aren’t qualified to judge a pissing contest, yet they vomit their empty thoughts on any subject as if they know their ass from their elbow .

      All those rich people have body guards and I’ll bet all of them pack heat, pluss those politicians. You cant tell me they dont have a gun some where. Bunch of hypocrites

    It’s a movie Jim! This guy made a career from talking out of his butt, and he is still doing it. Since he has made these comments and spit in the face of everyone who worked on that film including the crew, I expect him to be donating that money he made from the movie to victims of Newton. Anything less will be another sign that Jim Carrey isn’t a honorable man. Jim, just stay hidden in one of your many mansions and for once stop talking out of your ass
