Jim Carrey Attacks Sarah Huckabee Sanders with ‘Monstrous’ Painting

Jim Carrey has received major backlash on social media after painting what seems to be a less-than-flattering caricature of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

A spokeswoman for Jim Carrey confirmed that it was his artwork but did not reveal whether it was of Sanders.

The painting, which the actor uploaded to Twitter, came with a caption calling the image “monstrous.”

Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, was quick to defend his daughter, calling the Carrey a “Christaphobe.”

Twitter, however, was divided on how to react:

Carrey, however, wasn’t concerned by the criticism. In a statement to The Young Turks he said:

“I am so gratified by the reaction to my little drawings. It is the job of a political cartoon to vex those who abuse power or enable abuses. This administration has been lying to the American people from day one while plundering the country and debasing our values. And those who cover for those shameful mobster of a President are putting makeup on a melanoma and telling the cancer patient that everything’s fine. Monstrous? You bet!”

Undeterred by critics, Carrey then went on to reveal a painting of Donald Trump as the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz:

Carrey, 56, has been painting and drawing since he was a child, but his artwork has turned more political over the past few years.

This isn’t the only occasion in which Sanders has been criticized. Ex-Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg recently called Sanders a “fat slob,” saying that “If Sarah Huckabee wants to start debasing me, she’s a joke. OK, fine, yeah, she’s not attractive. She’s a fat slob, OK, fine.’

Nunberg was fired from Trump’s 2015 campaign team after racist social media posts were unearthed.

Even Pulitzer-winning columnist David Horsey has mocked Sanders for her appearance, writing in the Los Angeles Times that:

“Sanders looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games. Rather than the fake eyelashes and formal dresses she puts on for news briefings, Sanders seems as if she’d be more comfortable in sweats and running shoes. […] Yet, even if Trump privately wishes he had a supermodel for a press secretary, he is lucky to have Sanders.”

Horsey redacted his comments due to complaints and gave an apology for his unflattering passage.

Seems like fat-shaming is only acceptable if the target in question is a conservative.
