Is Jim Carrey Heartless? Or a "Heartless Motherf**ker"? (Updated)

Jim Carrey has jumped to Kathy Griffin's defense, which reminded me of some of his own sterling moral convictions of the past. This piece originally ran in March of 2013:

You may have heard that Jim Carrey made a "funny" video about the NRA and gun control. He tweeted in defense of his efforts:

'Cold Dead Hand' is abt u heartless motherf%ckers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids.Sorry if you're offended…

Carrey has, however, starred in movies in the past, such as the sequel to "Kick Ass", a movie that contained more gun violence (and torture) than you probably saw in your entire childhood growing up.

Mr. Carrey: Will you be advising us to boycott your movies based on the way they portray guns and violence? Mr. Carrey?? Mr. Carrey???

And thank you for lending the weight of your vast (or half vast) moral character to the defense of other lame, unfunny "comedians" with an equally distorted sense of right and wrong. As far as I know, no one was asking you.
