Funny or Die

The actor released a statement bashing the network, which has criticized his spoof anti-gun video all week, as "a last resort for kinda-sorta-almost-journalists."

Jim Carrey has returned Fox News' fire.

The veteran comic actor released a video this week through Funny or Die in which he mocked the NRA and its late leader, Charlton Heston, as gun addicts compensating for small anatomies. The video included a country song he sang called "Cold Dead Hand," a shot at Heston's famous quote about protecting his right to a firearm.

Ever since, he has been slammed by Fox News hosts and other right-leaning outlets; Fox's Greg Gutfeld called Carrey "the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth," adding, "I hope his career is dead."

Carrey released the following statement Friday:

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.
