As NewsBusters reported Monday, actor Jim Carrey released a satirical video at the comedy website Funny or Die which attacked gun owners and the late Charlton Heston with penis size jokes.
Later that day, Fox News's Greg Gutfeld and his co-hosts at The Five thoroughly trashed Carrey (video follows with LexisNexis transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):
KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE: Is Jim Carrey getting dumber and dumber?
Well, the comedian has gone off the rails on the issue of guns in America. And this time, Carrey is going after gun owners in a parody that is called "Cold Dead Hands" that mocks the late NRA president, Charlton Heston.

All right. Carrie also tweeted "`Cold Dead Hand' is about the heartless mother and then curse word, unwilling to bend for the safety of our kids. Sorry, if you're offended by the word safety."
Greg, you are barely able to contain yourself.
GREG GUTFELD: He is the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth and I hope his career is dead and I hope he ends up sleeping in a car the way his life begun.
This video made me want to go out and buy a gun. He thinks about this is biting satire going after rural America and a dead man.
Let's talk about Charlton Heston. Charlton Heston was one of the first actors to be behind the civil rights movement and marched.
What did jackass Jim Carrey do? He was behind that anti-vaccine panic. There's 160,000 people that died from measles last year, according to World Health Organization. Jim Carrey has killed more people than the rifles combined. He's a dirty, stinking coward. He's a moral coward. He did a video attacking rural America. You wouldn't do video about gangs which kills more people with handguns. He wouldn't do that because he is too worried about his career. He's such a pathetic, sad, little freak. He is a gibbering mess.
He's a modern bigot. He's a modern bigot.
BOB BECKEL: Can you tell us how you really feel about him?
GUTFELD: He's a bottomless pit of insecurity. And the desire for acceptance is why he's doing this because he knows in his heart that he's fraud. Sorry.
GUILFOYLE: And not nice to talk about Charlton Heston.
GUTFELD: Charlton Heston is the thing. Here was a great man who is dead and cannot defend himself. This little dirt bag, this little nobody.
DANA PERINO: And also what he said about Heston.
PERINO: OK? I know we probably can't say it, but basically he is questioning the size of his manhood. That's basically what it was. That is like the cheapest of all jokes.
And I love your point that he wouldn't make video about gang violence in Chicago.
GUTFELD: Hell, no.
PERINO: Where is that parody?
GUTFELD: And you're not going to see Clint Eastwood come out and do that because he's got class, dignity and grace.
Remember when President Obama said in that secret recording that they are clinging to their Gods and their guns and then they apologized and they moved on, everyone moved on. But you know what? It is what they really think.
PERINO: And not only did he make fun of Charlton Heston and rural America. He did a terrible hash of making fun of country music.
GUTFELD: This is edgy as a Frisbee.
BECKEL: I haven't seen a movie with this guy in how long?
GUILFOYLE: "Mask" and "Pet Detective" or something.
ERIC BOLLING: Do you remember in "Pet Detective" he talked out his butt.
GUILFOYLE: Ew! Gross.
BOLLING: Look, clearly, he is looking to be relevant, try to stay relevant. That's what a lot of liberals who are also celebrities try and do. Keystone pipeline people. It's just over and over.
Use the outrage factor to get shows to talk about what they said. I mean, clearly, Greg, most important is that he put it in the rural setting.
BOLLING: He said, look, people, in the middle of the country --
GUTFELD: White rednecks.
BOLLING: Hold on. You better hold on to your Bible and guns. Like there's something wrong.
I put on my Twitter thing on top to describe yourself.
BOLLING: Bitter clinger. Thank you, no problem.
GUILFOYLE: That is your bio description.
BOLLING: Jim Carrey, I'm still -- you know what? You're going to make more people buy guns.
BECKEL: You know, am strong in my feelings about guns. But I don't like the idea of a foreigner coming in here and try to get in those debates. Eastern Canada, right? I mean, they're our friends and we like the Canadians but I think it's probably a wise idea if you are not from a particular country to get in that country and begin to get in the middle of their politics. I mean, I --
PERINO: I also don't understand.
BECKEL: We don't need that sort of thing.
PERINO: I don't understand the attack.
So, if he's point is he wants to reduce gun violence? OK. But why go after rural America? I guess his point is maybe about background checks? But this is a guy if you really want to turn the guns on somebody would look at his backyard in Hollywood, all of those video games. All of those movies they're not made in rural America. And what's being emulated out there by nuts, like the murderer, in Newtown, Connecticut, it's that type of movie, behavior, video games that could possibly be a link. It's not rural America.
BOLLING: If Jim Carrey shows up, I don't know, a movie premier or something, and it's security is there, do you think they are --
GUTFELD: Of course.
GUTFELD: And he knows that he has a gated community and a fence that rivals any troubled embassy in the country. You can't get in his place. I've tried.
You know, I approach him on Twitter because the reason I approached him on Twitter because he dropped this on Twitter and he was looking for response. It engaged him but he ran away. He insulted a bunch of people and he ran like a little baby. He's such a little sad freak.
GUILFOYLE: A lot of emotion on the show.
BECKEL: Pretty clear.
GUILFOYLE: All right.
