Universal Caves To Jim Carrey: Removes Kick-Ass 2 Assault Rifles From Chloe Moretz Pic
It's lucky the British didn't have Jim Carrey on their side or else we might be still saying, "God save King George!"
To bring you up to speed, for some odd reason 6 months or so after the Sandy Hook school shooting that took place as a result of some disturbed individual, Jim Carrey, who plays Colonel Stars in Kick-Ass 2, stated he can't support the movie and won't be participating in any of the PR for it.
Well, typical of a Hollywood liberal to do, we didn't hear word that Jim Carrey is donating his proceeds for Kick-Ass 2 to charity - or giving it back - but now we see that Universal has caved to the pressure and edited a promo image of Chloe Moretz.
Below you can check out the original image which has assault rifles in the background, and the fixed image without them.
The Hollywood Reporter spotted the pic, with mention that Universal hasn't made a comment.
Well, Mark Millar, creator behind the graphic novel and Fox Studios Marvel consultant, did previously comment offering that what is depicted in Kick-Ass 2 is nothing new and Carrey knew 6 months ago what he was getting himself into.
Our guess is a new car.
Kick-Ass 2 has a August 16th 2013 release date also starring Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Jim Carrey.
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.
Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all
