Is Jim Carrey's latest painting anti-Christian?

Jim Carrey’s latest painting has caused a stir on social media, with the star accused of being both a “Christaphobe” and sexist.

The canvas in question seems to portray White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a “monstrous” caricature.

Posted on Carrey’s Twitter page, the caption reads: “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!”

And while some took issue with the art itself, accusing it of being sexist, others were more offended with Carrey’s choice of words.

One critic was Ms Huckabee Sanders’ father, the former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who called the actor a “pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & Christaphobe”.

Mr Huckabee asked: “What would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a ‘so-called Muslim’ or ‘so-called Jew?”

Conservative commentator Candace Owens described Carrey’s actions as “ugly” and “not Christian-like whatsoever”, while others simply thought the actor “misunderstood the definition of Christian”.

Others were offended by the tone of the painting, asking Carrey if he thinks “it’s funny or okay to make fun of young ladies appearances?”

One person asked: “How would you feel if it was your grandchildren being made fun of? Is that okay?”

Since the Twitter row erupted, Carrey has published another one of his anti-Republican paintings, this time showing Donald Trump dressed as The Wizard Of Oz’s Wicked Witch Of The West, and featuring “Putin’s flying monkeys”.

The caption reads: “If you liked my last cartoon you may also enjoy (this).”

Jim Carrey, once known for his comedic roles, has recently taken a turn into visual art – and occasionally steps back into the red carpet spotlight to share cosmic advice with TV viewers.
