Jim Carrey Told To 'Tame' Tweets: Tiger Woods' Tweets Backfire
"Tiger" Tweets Backfire For Carrey
After causing outrage with his Tweets about Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren, actor Jim Carrey is taming it down. On his Twitter page, Carrey was expressing support for the golfer as Woods was making his comeback at the Masters Tournament in Augusta last week.
The actor wrote, "Tiger Woods owes nothing 2 anyone but himself. 2 please his father he gave up his childhood and his freedom in the world." He also touched the subject of infidelity, essentially blaming Woods's wife Elin Nordegren for failing to address her husband's affairs. Carrey wrote, "No wife is blind enough to miss that much infidelity. Elin had 2 b a willing participant on the ride 4 whatever reason."
The wave of public outcry about Carrey's comments on Elin Nordegren's role in the sex scandal caused the actor to clarify that he does not condone infidelity, but maintains that responsibility for marriage is shared by both people.
Carrey tried to take on a defensive stance claiming infidelity has never been an issue for himself. "If I tried to keep a secret like that, I would grow a tumor and devil horns!"
In the wake of public criticism, the comedian tried to make light of his remarks, saying he is back to Twitter to see "if there is anyone left to offend."
Carrey also noted that his Tweets are being taken too seriously by the media, "...being fed by the media.I was almost out of Tiger untill E.T Supersized me!" The actor said "[his] people" called and recommended "taming" his Tweets.
