Jim Carrey criticized for painting a controversial portrait of, apparently, Sarah Huckabee Sanders
Folks say the painting is in poor taste and inappropriate.
“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked,” Carrey wrote. “Monstrous!”

Carrey primarily uses his Twitter account to share his latest artwork. Just last week, Carrey shared his painting of Stephen Hawking and other more abstract work.
Folks on Twitter—many of whom seemed to be supporters of the White House administration—expressed distaste for the painting and said it was a form of bullying Sanders.
Apparently you misunderstand the definition of Christian. It's certainly not what #Hollywood thinks!

I use to love your work, so gifted, but now I would rather not see or hear it.

And this is one more reason that I'm done with Hollywood. It's ok to be mean and hurtful as long as it's to someone you disagree with, right? Btw, this is a classic example of bullying. But again, it's ok as long as it's someone you disagree with, right?

I will always stand by freedom of expression but can we act our age & not call out people for their looks? It's incredibly superficial, shows weakness (logical fallacy) in your claim, and is exactly what we are trying to get our kids to stop doing in school.

Because using your celebrity status to make fun of someone on Twitter makes you a better Christian? Is that how it goes Jim?

A spokeswoman for Carrey confirmed it is his painting, according to the Associated Press, but did not confirm it is a depiction of Sanders.
The White House and Sanders have not yet commented about the painting.
