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.

Dear Jim, such violent acts have been occurring since way before SH. Please move out from under that rock and into a proper house.

He's a piece of crap Canadian loser who walks around criticizing gun owners as he uses them himself for protection! He's a filthy hypocrite who tries to inject his moronic Canadian beliefs into our country and I cannot stand him. I have never even owned a gun, but he needs to keep his idiotic mouth shut when it comes to our freedoms. This country is 10 times better than that little craphole he crawled out of.

He's a hypocrite! If he really felt that way then he would donate all of the money he made off his film to the Sandy victims.

WTF    

Do you guys know nothing about hype or are you intentionally being naive? This will only make more people see it and thats why he said it.

Other than that how could any harm come? The movie is done and he's in it.

I'm guessing he hasn't read the "Kick-Ass 2" comics because it was already violent to begin with.

There was NO SHOOTING in Sandy Hook, CT. The whole thing was a theatrical hoax. How can you not see that? Jim Carey is a tool.

Jim Carrey was never a big star, his movies make LESS that $300 million WORLDWIDE and that is why NO Studio wanted to do Dumb and Dumber 2, SHUT YOUR MOUTH JIM LEARN FROM PAULA DEEN !

The same shadow group pushing violent entertainment are the same one's working to take your guns away. Violence is OK when they can make a buck off of it but not OK when it comes to your 2nd Amendment rights.
