Actor Jim Carrey lashed out at Fox News on Friday, claiming the network slandered him because of his anti-gun views after he released a parody video mocking firearms owners.
Referring to Fox News as “Fux News,” Carrey said in a statement he would pursue legal action “if I felt they were worth my time or that anyone with a brain in their head could actually fall for such irresponsible buffoonery.”
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld in particular called Carrey “the most pathetic tool on the face of the Earth” after the “Funny or Die” clip went viral, and that “I hope his career is dead and I hope he ends up sleeping in his car like his life began.”
Carrey’s full statement is 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.
