Jim Carrey Turns His Back On ‘Kick-Ass 2,’ Twitter Gets Angry

Jim Carrey Kick-Ass 2 Mike Millar

Jim Carrey apparently isn’t a huge fan of his upcoming movie Kick-Ass 2. Unfortunately for the actor, he’s drawn the ire of countless individuals on Twitter.

If the Ace Ventura star was hoping to get people in his corner by speaking out against Jeff Wadlow’s sequel, then he was sorely mistaken. Instead, the actor’s condemnation of the film has caused many people to lash out on the micro-blogging site.

Before we get into that, let’s back up a bit. Jim Carrey recently announced on Twitter that he was withdrawing his support of the upcoming R-rated action flick. The tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary late last year have apparently changed the actor’s outlook on life.

“I did ‘Kick-Ass’ a month before Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. I meant to say my apologies to others involve with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart,” the actor said.

Kick-Ass mastermind Mike Millar responded to Jim Carrey’s comments with a post on his official website.

The writer explained:

As you may know, Jim is a passionate advocate of gun-control and I respect both his politics and his opinion, but I’m baffled by this sudden announcement as nothing seen in this picture wasn’t in the screenplay eighteen months ago. Yes, the body-count is very high, but a movie called ‘Kick-Ass 2′ really has to do what it says on the tin.

    The twitter audience are right to be pissed. It's ok to act in a violent movie, accept the payment and then turn your back on it declaring you're better than it and won't support it? No. No on so many levels. It's hypocrisy at its worst.
