Jim Carrey Apologizes for Mocking Assault Rifle Fans

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jim Carrey is sort of sorry to Second Amendment lovers around the country.

In March, the actor came under major fire from conservatives for starring in a Funny or Die video that made fun of gun-toting "motherf%ckers."

He then penned an Op-Ed for The Huffington Post in which he explained his stance in more detail and told critics to calm down.

Now, the star has come out with a series of Tweets that once again revisit the issue, as he tries to make nice with those he offended a few months ago.

"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," Carrey wrote yesterday, adding:

"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."

Carrey also made headlines a couple weeks ago when he slammed Kick-Ass 2 (a film in which he stars!) as being too violent. The comments, however, simply resulted in extra publicity for the August 16 release.

It's unclear what prompted Carrey's new apology for his opponents on the gun issue, but we doubt he's looking to increase their public profile in the same manner.

He is another in a long line of puppets trying to revolutionize his fizzled out career by attempting to demoralize conservatives and gun advocates. You would think that even the most ignorant of producers/actors would connect the dots and realize that conservatives are the ones that are opening up wallets at the box office when it comes to watching the 40^ generation on film. . It is not by chance that Morgan Freemen, Sean Penn, Scarlett J, Eva Longoria and so many others are Ohhhhh for 2013 at the box office. This silent boycott will continue and their careers are all but over! I hope it was all worth it. It was to the conservatives.

Too late for an apology, the damage is done. You alienated your fanbase, Jim -- http://placeitonluckydan.com/2...
