Over the weekend, Jim Carey received flack for sharing some of his opinions via twitter. The tweet that pissed folks off, were his thoughts on Tiger’s alleged infidelity. He tweeted: “Tiger Woods owes nothing 2 anyone but himself.” And added, “I want 2 make it CLEAR that I do not condone infidelity at all, but 2 some degree the responsibility 4 it is shared by both people!”
Anywho, that apparently pissed some folks off. Marlon Wayan’s came to Carrey’s defense, noting that comedians (and I hope he feels ppl), should be able to share their opinions.
I stand on the front lines defending the voice and opinions of not just comedians but all PEOPLE. Comedians are the philosphers of 2day about 2 hours ago via UberTwitter
Would we try to silence socrates? Richard pryor? Lenny bruce? George carlin? Chris rock? Whoopi? 2 hell wit dat I’m gona speak my mind about 2 hours ago via UberTwitter
Now on a branding “handler” tip, I’d ask for Jim Carrey to shut the hell up and keep his thoughts to himself. Last I checked, women go to the box office and take their kids to his movies. Who needs them thinking that he condones Tiger’s cheating? On a personal tip, it may be a stretch for Wayans to refer to comedians as the “philosophers” of today. I mean, really. Let’s not go getting all crazy. I do agree, that we all have a different experience and opinion. We should be entitled to say whatever the heck we want (within reason).
