Jim Carrey Jim Carrey, who has recently been outspoken on Twitter over gun control issues, has apologized to assault rifle owners for his disparaging comments.
Carrey has been on a crusade against violence and guns since he helped make "Cold Dead Hands" on Funny or Die, which made fun of gun owners. He then tweeted, "'Cold Dead Hand' is abt u heartless mother%ckers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids. Sorry if you're offended."
The anti-gun message continued, affecting his upcoming film Kick-Ass 2. Carrey has refused to do any press for it, explaining he filmed his parts before the school massacre in Newtown. "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook, and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. My apologies to others involved with the film," he tweeted in June.
However, Carrey has now reached out to assault rifle owners to apologize for some of his words towards him. He tweeted yesterday, "Asslt rifle fans,I do not agree wth u,nor do I fear u but I do love u and I'm sorry tht in my outrage I called you names.That was wrong. 3^{"
He posted later, "Btw I don't need a crisis mgr, just a conscience. Calling ppl names is inappropriate but my position on assault weapons hasn't changed. ;^}"
