Jim Carrey has shocked everyone after releasing a statement on twitter refusing the promotion of the next movie "Kick Ass 2" which will hit the big screen (UK) on the14th of August :
Sunday : "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. My apologies to e" "I meant to say my apologies to others involved with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart."
The 51 year old actor is known as a strong supporter of gun-control. The Universal Pictures have not yet commented, however the creator and executive director of "Kick Ass" Mark Millar responded with confusion over Carrey's decision on his website(Millarworld ) :
"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... like Jim, I'm horrified by real-life violence (even though I'm Scottish), but Kick-Ass 2 isn't a documentary."
Kick Ass (2010) made $19,828,687 in the opening weekend alone!
Here is the trailer of Kick Ass 2:
