Jim Carrey cold dead hands video

http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/043...ith-jim-carrey

I just saw parts of the video and thought it was funny . I've been a big Carrey fan for many years and was not all that offended . I then found out what he said on twitter .
Quote:
cold dead hand is about you heartless [people] unwilling to bend for the safety of our kids . sorry if you're offended you by the word safety.
Needless to say I'm no longer a fan and a little [angry] about it . Sure hope he comes out and tries to debate somebody in person rather then doing these drive-bys .

I’ve never liked the guy myself and was not really surprised to see something like this. At the end of the day he is just a low budget Jerry Lewis and I never thought Jerry Lewis was very funny.

Out of pure spite, I just ordered Midway off of Amazon.

Jim Carry was all about stopping vacinations a few years ago, now he is against guns, next he will be against milk. He is a loon. Celebs are attention whores and this is a great example. I wonder if his body guards carry guns? Of course they do. This more of do what I say, not what I do.

Someone asked about his body guards and his response was "yes, but they dont need to carry 100 round clips"

Anyone have a pic of a 100 round clip, LOL?

How can anybody take that guy seriously? He's made his living on imitating someone with limited mental resources and playing a fool. This newest character is no exception.

I don't think he was imitating anyone. He was just acting naturally.

Why on earth would you listen about an important subject from a baggy pant comedian?
The sole difference between him and the idiot sitting on a stool at the local bar is this one has a wider audience for his stupidity.
Chances are, the idiot on the bar stool has more common sense.

And on that note... I think we'll close this. There doesn't seem to be much else to discuss.
