Jim Carrey‘s streak of illustrating political leaders he mostly dislikes continued this week as the comedian tweeted his latest unveiling: President Donald Trump‘s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who by the way was recently raided by the FBI. He offered two Cohen illustrations—and the announcement of one sparked controversy.
Is there a short bus to take "all the best people" to prison? ;^P pic.twitter.com/ooHaGvZqFZ— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) April 18, 2018
“Is there a short bus to take ‘all the best people’ to prison?” Carrey wrote in a caption. The tone-deaf phrasing sparked an immediate backlash. Connecting a floundering lawyer to people with disabilities is mean-spirited and an insult to people with disabilities, and users said as much:
@JimCarrey I love your work. The text that accompanies it is highly insensitive. You might want to tweet and apology regarding the short bus.— Robert Flanagan (@robert_flanagan) April 18, 2018
But not so fast. In Canada, some users said, the short bus is the bus that takes people to prison. Carrey is from Ontario, after all.
Carrey’s been a U.S. fixture long enough to know better, though. All the same, his art is snowballing by the day. After re-imagining Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Scott Pruitt, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Bannon, John Bolton, and Sean Hannity, we’re still holding out hope that he draws Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters costing Hillary Clinton the election.
