The feud between conservatives and comedian Jim Carrey continued on Friday as Carrey released a statement slamming Fox News and making fun of the backlash against his recent music video mocking Charleton Heston.
“In my opinion Fux News [sic] is a last resort for kinda-sorta-almost-journalists whose options have been severely limited by their extreme and intolerant views,” Carrey said in his statement. “A media colostomy bag that has begun to burst at the seams and should be emptied before it becomes a public health issue.”
According to the Huffington Post, Carrey has continued fending off criticism on Twitter since releasing “Cold Dead Hand,” in which he said Heston, a conservative icon and National Rifle Association advocate, had an “itty bitty gland.”
“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,” Carrey wrote. “That would gain them far too much attention which is all they really care about.”
Carrey has also been knocked by conservative pundits like radio host Laura Ingraham and Fox News host Greg Gutfeld.
