Jim Carrey didn't even wait to see the final cut of Kick-Ass 2 before he turned against it. "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence," Carrey, an anti-gun activist, tweeted. "My apologies to others involved with the film. I am not ashamed of it, but recent events have caused a change in my heart." Mark Millar, one of the film's writers, responded to Carrey's criticism on his website. "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 18 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," Millar explained.
