“Jesus was the ultimate example of forgiveness faith and renewal,” the “Dumb and Dumber” actor-comedian proclaimed through Twitter Sunday morning. “Let’s lift our spirits to a brighter place, today. Happy Easter everyone!”
As outlined by Examiner March 25, “the “Bruce Almighty” comedian/actor” had taken to Twitter to remind everyone that his video — “Cold Dead Hand” – would be released on “’Funny Or Die’ at 12:01am.
The day before, Carrey informed everyone through Twitter that “the song is all about “u heartless motherf%ckers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids.”
Examiner further noted that Carrey joined Chris Rock, Bruce Willis, Tony Bennett, Adam Scott and Amanda Peet at a press conference in Washington, D.C. to support President Barack Obama’s call for new gun-control laws.
“This shower of bile isn’t [about] me,” Carrey tweeted in response to his critics.
I tapped into your feelings of powerlessness [and] opened up a reservoir it took yrs to fill. Let it rain!
Perhaps the most cogent explanation offered to Carrey — regarding the ensuing “shower of bile” that poured from those who were offended by his video and comments – was posted on the website WhoSay, by someone who goes by the moniker R3d_D06:
“Mr. Carrey, I respect your right to have an opinion on things,” R3d_D06 began. “I do not however recognize yourself imposed power to direct people in how they should feel. Attaching a meme to your opinion was a smart move, but I feel you may have bitten off more than you can chew.
Espousing every gun owner to a micro–phallus toting impotent man is by far the most narrow minded thing I’ve heard since people started saying you’re a racist if you disagree with anything Obama says. Honestly, I love your movies. But unfortunately from this point on you will no longer get any of my money. Simply because I don’t finance emotional terrorists.
“Simply because I don’t finance emotional terrorists,” Jill Kaiser quoted. “Yep. Good way to put it.”
Kaiser also drew attention to the picture of the painting Carrey chose to post with his “shower of bile” retort.
“If you don’t see the ‘Jim as Jesus’ imagery in this picture,” she observed of the painting — done by Carrey, who was granted the power to play God by God in the movie “Bruce Almighty” — “if you don’t recognize he brought the persecution complex on himself (while blaming everyone else)… you’re missing something.”
“Wow. I shined a light on the hate and now my twitter stream is nothin’ but love,” he tweeted just before Easter Sunday’s “Jesus” post. “I appreciate your support, so much!”
Although he offered no further thoughts of his own on the matter, he spent hours retweeting the responses offered by others, which show quite a bit of resentment mixed in with the “nuthin’ but love.”
Now Carrey has engaged in feud with Fox News regarding their coverage of his video.
On March 25 — during a segment of “The Five,” shared by Breitbart — Fox News’ Greg Gutfield called Carrey a “pathetic tool” and a “dirty, stinking coward,” adding that the video made him want to “go out and buy a gun.
In response, Carrey issued a press release directly to Fox News.
“Since I released my “Cold Dead Hand” video on Funny or Die this week,” Carrey stated, “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.
In a clip of the March 26 segment of “The Five” — shared by Town Hall — the five hosts returned fire.
“So the Jim Carrey video wasn’t really about the Second Amendment, a waning star embracing sanctioned targets to create the false front of intelligence,” Gutfeld began.
This is a guy who insulted most of America and danced on the grave of Charlton Heston.
“Our country is great because washed-up comics have the right to suck,” Gutfeld said further. “I love the First Amendment—and Twitter especially—for it exposes the soft underbelly of the celebrity simple mind. They undo everything their publicists try to mask.”
“Don’t sell yourself short,” Bob Beckle offered, the liberal among the majority of conservative hosts. “You got to him.”
Dana Perino mocked the press release, saying that it was Carrey who “thought he was going to get a lot of attention.”
Eric Bolling called Carrey’s antics “childish,” adding that, while some may view Carrey as a funny comedian and a good actor, Carrey has “lost it” and “melted down.”
“He can’t make a salient point,” said Kimberly Guilfoyle “so he engages is behavior to demean” America. She further associated his actions as “a cry for attention” because actors like Carrey are “desperate for attention because their careers are flailing.”
“It’s a try to get out of the $5,000 per night venues so he can get back to making some money,” Beckle suggested. “But it ain’t going to happen. It’s going to be $1,000 next week, big boy!”
“First of all, he says ‘I would sue you guys but you’ve got no brains,’” Beckle said of Carrey’s threat of “legal action.”
You talked out of your arse! Your ass end! Come sue us! Bring your arse and we’ll bring what little brains we have and we’ll see what happens!
At the end of the segment, Guilfoyle challenged Carrey to “bring it on.”
