Jim Carrey Releases Statement Insulting Fox News After Criticism to His Tasteless Anti Gun Music Video
Canadian born actor Jim Carrey lashed out at Fox News after several hosts on the network attacked Carrey for his tasteless ‘Cold Dead Hands’ music video which mocks gun owners and the late actor Charlton Heston.
Carrey has been taking heat among gun owners for the video.
Carrey has also been called hypocritical of his stance on gun control after alluding to having an armed body guard on Twitter.
Carrey’s full statement is below.
Since I released my “Cold Dead Hand” video on Funny or Die this week, I have watched Fux News rant, rave, bare its fangs and viciously slander me because of my stand against large magazines and assault rifles. I would take them to task legally if I felt they were worth my time or that anyone with a brain in their head could actually fall for such irresponsible buffoonery. That would gain them far too much attention which is all they really care about.
I’ll just say this: in my opinion Fux News is a last resort for kinda-sorta-almost-journalists whose options have been severely limited by their extreme and intolerant views; a media colostomy bag that has begun to burst at the seams and should be emptied before it becomes a public health issue.
I sincerely believe that in time, good people will lose patience with the petty and poisonous behavior of these bullies and Fux News will be remembered as nothing more than a giant culture fart that no amount of Garlique could cure.
I wish them all the luck that accompanies such malevolence.
