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.

Good for him! It's nice to see someone with the guts to stand up for what he believes in.

What angle is he working? Remember, this is the guy who made a huge fuss about becoming a US citizen while he was promoting one of his movies.

You guys are delusional if you think Jim Carrey's name is boosting this movie. The success of the first one is why part 2 is "highly anticipated".

And Jim Carey has made it to #1 again, it takes a real humanitarian to make a decision like that. Jim, keep up the great work, you are awesome.

Shut the F*ck up already, movies and violence in movies and video games did not have a damn thing to do with what happened anywhere and using it to now bash those things especially something you did yourself is just ridiculous and just makes you look very ignorant about so many things. I used to really like Carrey but lately he's just gone done the nutjob road like Jenny did.

used to love Carrey, then I realized what a loser he is. Read up on him, he's a complete douche-bag and idiot.
