Jim Carrey has a blog post on Huffington Post answering his Fox News critics and standing up to the hate they have engendered against him after he made a pro-gun regulation parody video. Although he doesn't name the "fair and balanced" network, it's pretty clear whom he's referring to when he speaks of "the bullies" trying to "marginalize" and "discredit" him. H/T Mediaite
Carrey writes, in a post called, "I Never Wanted to Take Your Guns Away:"
And to the bullies who will try to marginalize and discredit me by saying, "Shut up, you're just an actor," while they brag about what a great president the ACTOR Ronald Reagan was, who threaten me with the demise of my acting career and much worse, I say SO BE IT! How shallow do they think I am? I would trade my money, my fame, my reputation and legacy if there were the slightest chance of preventing the anguish of another Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, or Sandy Hook Elementary School. I ask you, truly, what manner of human being would not?
I have been aghast at the level of hatred heaped upon me, my family and the people I work with over a mere difference of opinion on this issue. Perhaps my words were a bit harsh at the onset, but calling someone a "Motherfucker" is far different than wishing them to die. It is shocking to see this concerted effort to brutally intimidate anyone who speaks of a compassionate compromise.
These thugs, though menacing, are a minority but they will have their way if good people don't step forward now and make a difference. Every American has the right to speak their mind. Every American has the right to bear arms. But it is up to every American to draw the line when it comes to the type of guns that are considered a reasonable means of self-defense.
And then he urges everyone to contact their senators, saying, "The time is now. LET YOUR HEART BE HEARD."
Then he lists the twitter contacts of every U.S. Senator.
“Hey Jimbo if you want to prevent a shooting just don’t fall until you hear the click. It’s that easy.” -I kid you not, this is a Fox Nation reply to the comment above.
Don’t even listen to that bunch of buffoon’s at Faux. It takes an idiot to listen to them let alone believe them. Your just fine. People agree with you and back you 100%.
