Jim Carrey has shocked the Internet with his new hobby: posting caricatures on his Twitter account.
The actor uses visual art to express his opinion on different matters, such as the recent passing of Steven Hawking, but that’s not what created all the mess.
Cheers to you Stephen Hawking, the greatest mental athlete of our time. You are all that is! See you around, buddy! ;^) pic.twitter.com/LEqYnFn2rW

In his caricatures, Jim depicts politicians such as Donald Trump and members of his team in a very controversial way, and that caused lots of arguments between the current President’s fans and opponents.

I’m dumping my @facebook stock and deleting my page because @facebook profited from Russian interference in our elections and they’re still not doing enough to stop it. I encourage all other investors who care about our future to do the same. #unfriendfacebook pic.twitter.com/KHWgZzhhmp

The one that is discussed the most is his “portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked,” which seems to depict White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (although it was never officially confirmed by Jim himself).
Opinions about the picture and the author himself really differs – some accuse Jim of sexism and “mental insanity”, claiming that he is a “pathetic weak little person” who attacks women’s appearance to get over his own failed career, while others approve of his way of showing politicians’ flaws and see Jim’s depictions as accurate enough.
This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous! pic.twitter.com/MeYLTy1pqb
