Jim Carrey Slams 'Fux News' Over Gun Fight: It's a 'Media Colostomy Bag'

The Associated Press, Friday, March 29, 2013, 1:19pm (PDT)

The Hollywood Reporter -- Jim Carrey has returned Fox News' fire.

The veteran comedy actor earlier this week released a video through Funny or Die in which he mocked the NRA and its late leader, Charlton Heston, as gun addicts compensating for small anatomies; the video, which included a country song that he sang, was called "Cold Dead Hand," a shot at Heston's famous quote about protecting his right to a firearm.

Ever since, he has been slammed by the conservative news network along with other right-leaning outlets; Fox's Greg Gutfeld said, "the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth – I hope his career is dead."

Carrey released a statement on Friday, which can be seen below:

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.
