    How many of you bothered to read the link? The only comment I read was "I cannot support that level of violence." If he commented on American gun laws, those comments must be somewhere else. But way to jump off a cliff GC folks. Time to move this one to Too Hot, where ignorance is tolerated to a higher degree.

    Jim Carrey: Gun Control Opponents Are 'Heartless Motherf--kers'
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/25/jim-carrey-gun-control-heartless_n_2948171.html

    That took all of about 30 seconds worth of searching on google.

    Isn't this how the free market works? Are you guys serious asking that he be forced to invest his money into a project that he doesn't support?

    Huh? He got paid for it and it's already been made.

    Now I'm confused. I read a different version of the story, which made it sound like he was a financier, rather than an actor in the film. So is he asking that his scenes be cut? Or he is just verbalizing "non-support"?

    No he's just acting in it. Right now he's refusing to promote it. I.e. talk shows and interviews

    I don't think anyone is advocating force. Just that he should quit being a hypocrite and put his money where his mouth is.

    JC will get more publicity with this stunt than otherwise. Follow the money! His non promotion is promotion and it is free because the press will lap it up on both sides...

    This is like Jenna Jameson becoming a born again virgin right after the money shot.

    Well it does sound a bit different now. If he truly had a change of heart, then he is in a tough spot to be honest to himself or respectful to his coworkers and employers. But the timing does seem weird, since he has been aware of the content for months.

    Where's the story about him donating the 15 mil paycheck to the victims of Sandy Hook? I mean the money is dirty right?

    If he really did get 15 million, you have a fair point.

    He isn't accomplishing what he intended. Now the movie is going to get way more promotion... and for free

    I would love for a reporter to ask Jim Carrey which (not if) anti-gun non-profit he is planning to donate all incomes from the film to.

    And the original link contained none of that information. My comment was that "if he has commented on American gun laws those comments must be somewhere else" and you've proven me to be correct. Your links contain a comic parody song and a tweet that specifically calls out those "unwilling to bend 4 safety." What is your problem with that?

    On the contrary, he is getting exactly what he wants. Free Pub and Free Exposure. And he will laugh all the way to the bank...

    It would be interesting to know if he is being paid a fee or a %.
