Jim Carrey condemns violence in his own movie

Posted: Updated:
ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

Actor Jim Carrey took to his Twitter account to let fans and supporters know that he is no longer supporting a film he participated in a month before the Sandy Hook shooting in December.

"I did Kickass a month b4 [sic] Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence," he wrote. "My apologies to other involve with the film. I am no [sic] ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in heart."

In the movie Kick-Ass 2, Carrey plays a crime fighter.

According to The Guardian, executive producer Mark Millar said Carrey knew what he was getting himself into and is confused about his reaction to the film.

"[I'm] baffled by this sudden announcement as nothing seen in this picture wasn't in the screenplay 18 months ago," he wrote. "Yes, the body count is very high, but a movie called Kick-Ass 2 really has to do what it says on the tin," Millar said on his blog.

This isn't the first time Carrey has spoken out against violence. The Huffington Post reported that in March he tweeted and called people against gun control "heartless mother (expletive)s".
