Jim Carrey slammed online for alleged Sarah Sanders caricature

Jim Carrey Sarah Sanders

The comedic actor turned painter Jim Carrey provoked an online war-of-words this weekend after posting a caricature of the White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Twitter. Carrey captioned it: "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only objective in life is to lie for the wicked".

According to the Associated Press, a rep for Carrey confirmed that he was the artist behind the controversial painting, but did not reveal the identity of the subject.

On Monday, Carrey appeared to double down on his criticism of the Trump administration via his artwork with another social media post.

The images sparked controversy with many on Twitter saying that Carrey was "bullying" Sanders and decrying the image's seeming mockery of Sanders' physical appearance.

The Dumb And Dumber star has gotten quite political over the past couple years (haven't we all??) and has recently taken to expressing his feelings about figures like Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, and Marco Rubio with colorful cartoons (above). "Every day at some point there's pretty much a peaceful acceptance of what's going on in my life right now, but I do also tune in to the Republican-what could I call on it?-war on logic, intelligence, and compassion at least once a day".

"I'd bet my bank account that if Jim Carrey had made a portrait of Hillary Clinton instead of Sarah Sanders, the Trumpers would be loving it".

If you don't follow Jim Carrey on Twitter, you may be surprised by... well, everything in this story! "Suddenly, six years ago, at a time when I was trying to heal a broken heart, I decided, 'Well, maybe I'll paint'".
