Jim Carrey Fights Back Against Fox News Vitriol

by at . Comments

The ongoing fight between Jim Carrey and gun rights advocates is heating up, as he released a statement today bashing Fox News.

Carrey posted a Funny or Die exclusive video called Cold Dead Hand, which poked fun at gun rights advocates, the NRA, and gun rights icon Charlton Heston.

Watch the video below, then read on to see how the fight escalated:

The video enraged pro-gun people, and even prompted one eBay user to auction off a signed photo of Carrey in order to buy a gun.

The video also got the attention of Fox News, with host Greg Guttfeld calling Carrey "the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth"

Now, Carrey has lashed back at Fox News, releasing a statement referring to the network as "Fux News" and calling them "a media colostamy bag."

"Since I released my 'Cold Dead Hand' video on Funny or Die this week," Carrey states, "I have watched Fux News rant, rave, bare its fangs and viciously slander me because of my stand against large magazines and assault rifles."

He continues, "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."
