California (The Galamp Post) – Actor Jim Carrey took a swipe at Fox News recently after the wide-spread negative response to his recently released video, “Cold Dead Hands.” The video which is believed to have been an attempt at humor has instead angered many Americans because of it’s outright slap-in-the-face to many.
A condensed version is below.
After both Carrey and his video were ripped to shreds by several personalities on Fox News, he decided to fire back with a few choice (and childish) words of his own. In a statement released last week, Carrey writes:
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.
The Canadian-born actor’s handling of negative criticism is surprisingly intolerant, especially when considering his career comprised of playing morons, idiots, and psysho-silly characters. While he may have been a funny man in the past, when it comes to our constitution, not many are laughing at him any more.
Here is how Carrey’s outburst was addressed on Fox News channel’s show, The Five.
