(KTVI) – Jim Carrey sent a press release to FOX News on Friday attacking them for their coverage of a viral comedy video he appears in.

The actor stars in a video on the website, “Funny or Die” where he sings a song about gun control on a parody of the show Hee-Haw.

Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld attacked Carrey saying, “This video made me want to go out and buy a gun. He thinks this is biting satire going after rural America and a dead man… He’s a dirty, stinking coward.”

Carrey, says the video was made to, “stand against large magazines and assault rifles.” He sent this release to the news outlet:

“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. That would gain them far too much attention which is all they really care about.

I’ll just say this: in my opinion Fux News is a last resort for kinda-sorta-almost-journalists whose options have been severely limited by their extreme and intolerant views; a media colostomy bag that has begun to burst at the seams and should be emptied before it becomes a public health issue.

I sincerely believe that in time, good people will lose patience with the petty and poisonous behavior of these bullies and Fux News will be remembered as nothing more than a giant culture fart that no amount of Garlique could cure.

I wish them all the luck that accompanies such malevolence.”
