Hmm. Good question! As Twitchy reported, Jim Carrey’s anti-gun song, “Cold Dead Hand” was released yesterday. It mocks the late Charlton Heston, as well as gun owners. Remember, he previewed the release by proclaiming the song was for all the “heartless motherf**kers” who don’t care about the safety of our kids. As we noted, the video was released by Funny or Die and the song is available on iTunes. For 99 cents per download. Will the proceeds be given to charity, “funny man”?
CNN has a statement from anti-gun nut Carrey:
Carrey said in a statement that he found America’s rash of gun violence “frustrating” and the video was “my fun little way of expressing that frustration.”
Fun, profitable, same diff! Also, what on earth is “fun” about using the deaths of children to promote not only one’s agenda, but oneself? Unless by fun, he means deplorable.
Tasteless, offensive and morally repugnant. Twitter users agree and take the actor to the woodshed for dancing (and singing) on the graves of children.
A fellow anti-gun nut helps show the depth of the depravity.
Wow. What conviction! Totally about the children, unless, you know, he has to pay for just a song without bonus video included. Priorities! But, hey, he added #nomoreguns so he’s totally serious.
Other Twitter users continue to question why Carrey is such a douchetastic hypocrite by also profiting off of movies that glorify violence.
Profiting off of violence-glorification and dead children.
But it’s totally OK. He loves you. Even you ‘motherf*ckers.”
Even if the proceeds of the song will be given to charity, Mr. Carrey is promoting himself on the backs of the dead. As is Funny or Die; they aren’t a non-profit organization are they? HBO, a Funny or Die partner, would be surprised to learn that.
Update: Classy. Cashing in on tragedy and gloating about it.
