Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

"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."

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."
