Los Angeles, June 25 — Actor-comedian Jim Carrey says he cannot support the level of violence shown in his forthcoming film Jeff Wadlow's "Kick-Ass 2."

The 51-year-old has taken this decision after reading about December's Connecticut school massacre. Also, just weeks after Carrey wrapped his work on the movie, 20 children and six adults were killed by a gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School here and the headline-hitting atrocity made the actor rethink his commitment to the project.

"I did 'Kick-Ass' a month before Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience, I cannot support that level of violence," Carrey posted on Twitter, reports dailystar.co.uk.

"My apologies to others involved with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart," he added.

Set to release in August, the film also stars Aaron Taylor Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz.
