The film's star was starring in the two violent film.
Has been front and center on the recent anti gun violence push.
And he tweeted out his latest explanation for his behavior saying quote I did it in the name of the movie.
Before -- sandy hook.
And now -- all good conscience I cannot support this level of violence my apologies others involved with the felt I am not ashamed of it.
A recent events have caused a change in my heart.
Joining me now Michelle Malkin is a columnist fox contributor.
So he can't add to this.
Riff on our parity of Charlton Heston.
Saying you know you get my gun -- when you rip it from my cold dead hands and yet to the last -- at the time because he started many many -- -- where he he's featured with the guns and pointing and everybody and shooting people up.
And at the time -- -- didn't think he was a hypocrite.
And he was making this movie declining to say all that stuff but now it's time to promoted Michelle -- about that that's a bridge too far.
You got it handed to these holly weird -- they really know how to have it all ways.
And I think that day even the makers of the film and his other colleagues in the movie are going to be rather disgusted with him joining us.
Everyone else who has been watching his.
Anti gun meltdown happen on Twitter at these last several months we've been monitoring it on -- my.
Twitter I -- aggregation site so when he came out with this tweet.
Yesterday afternoon it was quite the puzzler the way that he has.
Where did it because on the one hand he says he's not ashamed of the movie but apparently now he's not gonna.
Go out and do any publicity for it.
But he's really had a change of heart is he going to now return his salary you or -- it says some sort of charity I think a lot of people are wondering.
That out loud.
And then of course there's I think a very fundamental point here which is he is trying to cover his you know what.
That the name from the movie there -- -- as you say it was back in March when he came out with this on the hinged.
Video parent being Charlton Heston it was called cold dead hands.
And and he was going on this nonstop all caps Twitter rant.
Denying that he was a -- -- and it wasn't -- until a young conservative activist.
-- bottom came out with a devastating.
Compilation of all the violent clips.
Of movies that Jim Carrey had previously been involved and cashed in on and had not been ashamed of.
Right and now I have to say but now he wants us to believe it was sandy hook that really changed everything for him and the question has to be as awful as sandy hook was -- -- how much it affected all of America.
What will you know like the 32 dead victims at Virginia Tech did that not affect you at all back in 2007 how about when.
Gabby Giffords got shot along with five other people at her rope line or or column -- for that matter none of the other.
The violent incidents that he puts entirely you know the blame on guns and -- -- bad guns is opposed the bad people.
That those did not affect him and did not stop him from making any these movies.
Yes right great point -- in and it really underscores just how expedient.
Anti gun pose and posture and and theater has been.
Over the last several months look you know what I think there's a part of me that wants to except.
His change of heart because I welcome any holly -- acknowledging that there might be some consequences and there might be some.
On the part of these.
Actors and directors and producers who've indulged timing again in these blockbuster movies that use.
Amounts of gratuitous violence.
Even that same people on the left.
Who blame Sarah Palin and her use of -- standard.
Campaign targeting map for every last.
The random violence in this country and then -- -- -- That all of the -- and all of the bloodbath that they put out there might possibly have something to do with the level of violence and work.
All year and now he's come out though -- taken at the end of this is -- draws the line.
But already Michelle the backlash has started because the executive producer of the film came out that I'm baffled by this announcement.
Nothing seen his picture wasn't in the screen play eighteen months ago.
I said -- the body count is very -- but.
This movie is you know what it says -- sound like a repeat that I -- to promote this movie right okay because it's now we all know what it is and if you wanna look up with a name you can.
But will there be backlash to Jim Carrey or do you think this is just gonna help a -- publicize.
This -- I think that is going to unify left and right in confirming what -- phony.
Complete phony Jim Carrey is.
-- on the other hand what I hope it does is re -- in a discussion that has been rather than you did in the wake of of many of these tragic.
-- acts of violence and of course every weekend is a bloodbath in Chicago when we never hear from the left about this.
About what possible consequences there might be of out of pop up Hollywood we should have that conversation shouldn't play great to see Michelle.
