Jim Carrey recently played a part in a sequel to "Kick Ass," but has decided he won't promote it because of its violent nature.
He announced the news on his Twitter account.
"I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. My apologies to others involved with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart."
Carrey plays Colonel Stars in the movie. Stars allows his dogs to attack the genitals of an enemy. It is based on a comic book series about a teenage superhero named Kick Ass, it was written by Mark Millar.
Millar is aware of Jim's refusal to promote the movie, saying on his site, "As you may know, Jim is a passionate advocate of gun-control and I respect both his politics and his opinion, but I'm baffled by this sudden announcement as nothing seen in this picture wasn't in the screenplay eighteen months ago."
"Yes, the body-count is very high, but a movie called Kick Ass 2 really has to do what it says on the tin."
