Jim Carrey

RIPS His Flick

'Kick Ass 2' is Too Violent

Jim Carrey
doesn't care if he torpedoes his new movie "Kick-Ass 2" ... he's speaking his mind ... bashing the film's extreme violence in the wake of last year's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Jim -- who plays Colonel Stars and Stripes -- tweeted his sentiments today, saying, "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence.”

He added, "My apologies to others involved with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.”

The film, due out in August, is a highly anticipated sequel. The first one grossed almost $100 million worldwide. Make no mistake, to have Carrey -- by far the movie's biggest star -- drop his support is a huge blow.



We reached out to Universal -- the studio behind the flick -- so far no word back.

I see it wasn't violent enough for him to return his paycheck. Its lousy for him to pizz on his colleagues who worked their butts off. Shame on Carey. We don't need him to be our violence police. Just make the movie, cash your check, and STFU.

I would not watch any movie with Jim Carrey in it. He is a self centered douche bag. The hype from his "Cold Dead Hands " video has died down so he has to say something else stupid to stay in the news. He did not knock the movie before now. since he shot it a month before the shooting why did it take this long to say something about it?

Jim, we can't let 1 in a million screw it for the rest of the 6.0 billion people on the planet who are not violent. Please, get back to your Eckhart Tolle teachings and see the real world. It is far from violent. There is more peace on this planet than the media is willing to tell us.

Jim Carey is so righteous, he should give back the money they paid him to do the film. What a douchebag.

I wouldn't call that a "rip" at all. Just his opinion and feelings said nicely.
