Jim Carrey doesn’t want you to see Kick Ass 2 because of violence

Jim Carrey plays Colonel Stars and Stripes in Kick Ass 2, but today, just before the big press push leading up to the film’s August release, Carrey spoke out on Twitter against the film, saying he can no longer support it because of the 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.

Creator and writer Mark Millar had this to say:

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. A sequel to the picture that gave us HIT-GIRL was always going to have some blood on the floor and this should have been no shock to a guy who enjoyed the first movie so much… Kick-Ass 2 is fictional fun so let’s focus our ire instead of the real-life violence going on in the world like the war in Afghanistan, the alarming tension in Syria right now and the fact that Superman just snapped a guy’s fucking neck.
