Jim Carrey Refuses to Publicise Kick-Ass 2

Jim Carrey Refuses to Publicise Kick-Ass 2

 

In a sudden change of heart that has taken Hollywood by surprise, Jim Carrey has tweeted his refusal to support the upcoming release of his next film KICK-ASS 2 on account of the movie’s violence.

Scheduled for release in August, the Kick-Ass sequel sees Jim Carrey don a mask as ‘the good guy’ Colonel Stars and Stripes.

Yet, early this morning, this unexpected tweet appeared on Carrey’s Twitter page:

“I did Kick-Ass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. My apologies to others involved in the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have changed my heart”

‘Sandy Hook’ refers to a U.S primary school shooting on December 14, 2012. Following the shooting Carrey launched headlong into the gun control debate, actively seeking tougher gun laws.

I guess you gotta practice what you preach after all, and Carrey looking uber-cool wielding guns on the big screen one day then waggling his finger at gun use the next does send a rather mixed message.

As most actors are contractually obliged to help promote their films, it shall be interesting to see how Carrey’s refusal to play ball will go….

Stay tuned!
