Jim Carrey faces Twitter backlash for ‘monstrous’ portrait of White House spokesperson
The ‘Bruce Almighty’ star unveiled his magnum opus to his 17 million Twitter followers over the weekend. “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!” Carrey wrote.

Many users were less than impressed with the caricature, accusing Carrey of bullying and sexism.
This is the portrait of a so-called comedian, Jim Carrey. He used to be funny. pic.twitter.com/fWv26TDBSW— thebradfordfile (@thebradfordfile) 19 March 2018
I'm wondering if Jim Carrey is having a Me, Myself, and Irene "Hank" moment?— Stonewall Jackson (@1776Stonewall) 19 March 2018
Pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & "Christaphobe" @jimcarrey attacks @PressSec for her faith; what would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a "so-called Muslim" or "so-called Jew?" #classlessCarreyhttps://t.co/HCqHoER0Ru— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) 19 March 2018
Carrey has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration and has tweeted similarly unflattering portraits of Republican figures in the past.
