We can guess who Bill O’Reilly will dub Pinhead of the Week.
Jim Carrey has released a statement against Fox News (he refers to it in his official statement as “Fux News”) after the network spent the past week attacking his Funny or Die video. In Carrey’s song, “Cold Dead Hand,” which already has racked up over 1.8 million views, the comedian takes on gun enthusiasts with lyrics such as, “The angels wouldn’t take him up to heaven like he planned, cause they couldn’t pry that gun from his cold dead hand.”
Along with the video, Carrey expressed his views about the musical project on Twitter, writing, in part, “Gun folks are afraid that control won’t stop with large magazines. Their nervousness is far less important than the safety of our children. ‘Cold Dead Hand’ is abt u heartless motherf%ckers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids.”
Read Carrey’s full statement, where he refers to ‘Fux News’ as “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,” 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.”
