HOLLYWOOD – Jim Carrey announced via his Twitter feed that he was withdrawing support from Mr Popper’s Penguins, ‘because it was a pile of shit’.
The film – which came out in 2011 – was largely seen as a ‘vacuous malodorous stench filled lump of virulent puss’, The New York Times.
Director Mark Waters expressed his disappointment:
Jim is a wonderful actor, but he is Canadian and they are treacherous when it comes down to it. Don’t get me wrong, some of my best friends are Canadians. But still they should be wiped off the face of the Earth.
The announcement comes only minutes after Ace Ventura (as he likes to be called) announced he would not be supporting Kick Ass 2 in which he appears, due to its violence.
Speculation is now rife that Jim Carrey is going back through his filmography and trying to distance himself from all the crap he’s done. The process might well take weeks.
Dumb and Dumber To is in theaters.
