Weeks after he went on a Twitter blitz absolutely trashing assault rifle owners, calling them ‘heartless mother****ers’, actor Jim Carrey has tweeted an apology. Carrey wrote that he doesn’t ‘fear’ gun owners – actually he claims to ‘love’ them – even though he still disagrees with their beliefs.
Yesterday, Carrey tweeted:
He quickly followed it up a clarifying message:
“He tweets he's a little sorry,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Well, now I want to go see his movie. How about you guys?”
“He's sorry because studio executives are saying, ‘You just lost 100 million NRA fans from going to your movie. They are not going to now,’” Pat explained. “A lot of tweets back to him were ‘Too little too late’; ‘We won't support your career anymore’; ‘Did you donate those profits from Kick Ass 2 yet, since you feel so strongly about it?’”
Kick Ass 1 and the sequel, Kick Ass 2, are extremely violent movies, and despite appearing in the first and second film, Carrey has since denounced Kick Ass 2 because “recent events” caused him to reevaluate the film’s themes.
“He's such a loser hypocrite,” Glenn said. “He's really a dope. You don't just trip your way into a gun stance that is that strong.”
One of the more interesting aspects of Carrey’s apology is that he claims to not ‘fear’ assault rifle owners, which would lead one to question why he disagrees with them.
“If you don't fear them, why don't you agree with them,” Stu asked. “Your whole point is that regular people will go buy assault weapons and God knows what will happen. Well, if you don't fear them, what's the problem with the assault weapons? That's our point: I shouldn't be fearing people who can buy these things because they are law abiding citizens in over 99.8% of the cases. You can't trust everyone with a gun, but you can't make those determinations. It is not the product's fault.”
“He's a dope,” Glenn reiterated. “Jim Carrey's career is over, and we are sad. We are sad. We'll let you know where the funeral and where to send flowers, but his career is completely over. I love this. Jim, let me just say this… So Jim Carrey, I don't agree with you, nor do I fear you, nor do I love you, and I don't really have any outrage, but I'm not going to ever see your movie. Just want to let you know.”
