Jim Carrey hits out at 'fux news' for slamming his anti-gun skit

|

Jim Carrey has hit out at Fox News for slamming the anti-gun skit video he posted earlier in the week.

The comic actor released a video on Funny Or Die this week in which he mocked former NRA leader, and actor, Charlton Heston. The video, which you can see below, was aimed at US gun nuts and included a comical country song called 'Cold Dead Hand' – taken from an infamous Heston quote on gun laws.

Now, following a backlash from right-wing media commentators, including Fox's Greg Gutfeld who called Carrey "the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth", the actor has released a statement explaining his reasons for making the video.

He wrote: "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."

Meanwhile, Jim Carrey has recently suggested that he and Jeff Daniels could begin filming Dumb And Dumber 2 next year (2014). He told WorstPreviews: "We're talking about it. Jeff [Daniels] and I are really excited about it and hopefully next year we'll be able to do that."
