Jim Carrey has been outspoken in his instance of new gun control laws, but it seems the actor has felt remorse over the derogatory names he used to describe American gun owners.
In response to repeated questions regarding his take on how he approached the ongoing gun debate, Carrey took to Twitter to offer his apologies.
"Asslt rifle fans,I do not agree wth u,nor do I fear u but I do love u and I'm sorry tht in my outrage I called you names.That was wrong," Carrey wrote yesterday.
"Btw I don't need a crisis mgr, just a conscience. Calling ppl names is inappropriate but my position on assault weapons hasn't changed," he added.
The feud reportedly began back in March with Fox News' coverage of Carrey's video "Cold Dead Hand." The video was created to speak out on the gun control debate, and Carrey was starring in the video promoting what his stance was on the issue.
Carrey stated that he is against any guns that can hold large magazines and assault rifles.
In the video Carrey mocks gun owners as well as Charlton Heston, one of the most prominent supporters of the right to bear arms in America in recent decades. Heston recently passed away.
Carrey stated in his press release: "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."
