Just hours after the tragic bombings in Boston, actor and comedian Jay Mohr took to Twitter to lambast the Second Amendment, saying it’s creating a “culture of violence.”

“What bothers me most about today is that we’re getting used 2 it. ENOUGH. 2nd amendment must go. Violence has 2 stop. Culture MUST change,” he tweeted Monday night.

The “Jerry Maguire” star apparently received some backlash for the comment, because just five minutes later, he tweeted, “The 2nd Amendment lends itself to the CULTURE of violence we are living in. Stop blowing up my timeline w your gun/porn fetishes.”

The actor later tweeted that he wasn’t trying to be political with the comment, he was just “sick of watching bloodshed on tv.” He also added he was amazed at how many pro-gun responses he received in such a short time.

He then retweeted several angry comments from users calling him a hypocrite, an idiot, a “douchebag,” and saying his standup act is “excruciating to watch.”
