Jim Carrey to Assault Rifle Fans: I Love You and I'm Sorry I Called You Names

As NewsBusters previously reported, actor Jim Carrey back in March called gun owners "heartless motherf--kers."

On Sunday, Carrey tried taking it back writing on Twitter:

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^{

Carrey followed that up with:

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. ;^}

This isn't the first time Carrey's conscience got the better of him.

Last month he announced that he was not going to support his soon to be released movie "Kick-Ass 2" because of the violence.

BTW — my position on never again watching moronic, over-acted movies featuring a guy who has typecastrated himself as a sophomoric asshole hasn’t changed, either. And he’s right; namecalling is wrong; but facts are facts.

I care about as much about his apology as I did the original insult.

He's an entertainer, nothing more.

I said it’s too late to apologize, it’s too late

If he’d take the time to learn about the Constitution, firearms in general and semi automatic weapons and quit referring to them as “assault rifles” we might believe him.

Funny....my opinion of him hasn’t changed at all.

One very sick and troubled person. Makes me feel guilty having laughed at the poor fool over the years.

Like many of the exhibitionist comics and artists, they come from troubled childhoods and frequently end up as cocktail drug users and then too soon on the coroners slab.

Self righteous. Self important. Self indulgent. Self destructive.

When you depend on people buying tickets to see you, it’s probably wise to keep your big mouth shut and keep your dumbass opinions to yourself.

called gun owners "heartless motherf--kers." . . . Carrey tried taking it . . . Calling ppl names is inappropriate but my position on assault weapons hasn't changed

So he's apologizing for calling us what he still thinks we are, but not for wanting to take our God-given and constitutionally protected rights, which he still wants to take? Interesting. What was he thinking when he decided that would improve his ticket sales?

These Hollywoodites cannot see that there is a direct correlation between the reduction in money their movies make and their public leftist political stances.

I'm guessing that a studio honcho requested this act of contrition. Money is always the bottom line.

Dear Jim,

Please explain in detail what the term “Assault Rifle” means.

Is there any such thing as an Assault Baseball Bat, Assault Car or Assault Knife to name a few?

What is an “assault rifle”, anyway? I have never heard that one adequately defined.

The “AR” in AR-15 does NOT mean “assault rifle”(it refers to the original design, ArmaLite Rifle), though it is probably too late to overcome that prejudice in the minds of low-information voters. These semi-automatic side arms only fire ONCE with a squeeze of the trigger. They are not machine guns, the possession of which is strictly controlled by law.

” He’s an entertainer, nothing more.”

That’s a loose usage of the term.

Exactly. Someone explained to him, well, maybe his business manager... The demographics of his one-time fan base. A little late now for a half-hearted apology. He is already on my no-fly list. Don’t see much chance of him getting off that list. Keep up with the anti-gun, anti-freedom bs, no go. Pull a reversal and I’ll just think you’re a hypocrite and or liar looking to salvage a career.
