Jim Carrey has a lot to say about sports stars, and the wives of sports stars too. In particular Elin Nordegren, wife of Tiger Woods.
Carey in a series of tweets:
Tweet 1: I made a Tiger joke today, but after listening 2 Payne’s speech I think it’s time we checked our collective EGO and let the guy play! d;^\
Tweet 2: If you really wanna see sexual disfunction get 2 know your favorite basketball star! Curling is the only safe sport 4 a married man! d;^’
Tweet 3: Tiger Woods owes nothing 2 anyone but himself. 2 please his father he gave up his childhood and his freedom in the world. That’s enough!—>
Tweet 4: No wife is blind enough to miss that much infidelity. Elin had 2 b a willing participant on the ride 4 whatever reason. kids/lifestyle ;^)
The kids are enough for any wife to try and make it work with Tiger Woods. And in case Carrey forgot, raising young children is a full time job, so Elen can be forgiven for missing a lot. Perhaps Carrey should spend time with his newborn grandson, to get a grip on that parenting equation. However–he shares and posits some interesting thoughts. I don’t think women should be beaten up for men’s sins, that’s a little bit chauvenistic–but Jim does raise a point.
[Subtext of Jim's tweets: Elen Nordegren and Sandra Bullock are the same person caught in a bad romance. Carey uses Nordegren's name to send a message to the Bullock camp]

I think that is a hideous and beastly thing to say!!! Only an insensitive man like Jim Carey can put the blame on Elin Nordegren and his sympathy on a man like Tiger Woods. The entire world knows that Tiger Woods took advantage of his decent, loyal wife, Elin Nordegreen, savagely betraying her trust and love. We all know that Tiger has accepted publicly his guilt and has repeatedly apologized to his wife, saying that Elin deserves praise not blame. It seems that Jim Carey assessment of the situation is very, very wrong.
HORIWOOD: Agreed. But if you see Jim’s statement directed not at Elen as such, but at Sandra Bullock (Carey uses the word “blind” in his tweet)–then his tweets take on a whole new reading. Men… we are pigs. So on behalf of us all, please find it in your heart to forgive Jim. It looks like he’s not coping well at all being newly single, right?! So perhaps he needs some empathy too at this time.
