Jim Carrey’s new hobby of painting dead children is seriously disturbing

People are scratching their heads over Jim Carrey’s new hobby.

The actor-comedian made a series of paintings in response to the Valentine’s Day shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.–including one depicting a young girl dead in a pool of blood on top of the flag.

“Oh say, can’t you see?!” Carrey wrote in his tweet’s caption, a reference to the national anthem. The image showed the girl’s school supplies sprawled on the floor, as well as several bloody footprints.

Carrey’s politically-charged artwork brought to mind this month’s mass shooting, in which 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz killed 3 teachers and 14 students–some as young as 14.

The “Truman Show” actor also shared a painting he made that ridiculed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who was grilled at a heated pro-gun control town hall hosted by CNN last week.

The painting showed Rubio’s hands covered in blood, suggesting the senator was responsible for those killed in the shooting.

“Rubio‘s agenda is clear,” Carrey said in his tweet’s caption. “Keep taking millions from the NRA and wash the blood of innocent children off his hands. Apparently $3.3 million is the price of this politician’s soul.”

Other tweets and paintings targeted President Trump, mocking his golf-playing and his support for arming capable teachers as a way of stopping school shootings.

“Great news! The President’s answer to school shootings is to arm the glee club!” Carrey jeered.

In past works of art, the Canadian-American entertainer has lampooned House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), and Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Last year, Carrey told W Magazine that he’s been making cartoons for years but only recently began to make them public.

“I do a lot of political cartoons,” he said. “I’ve been doing them all along. When I was in grade six, my teacher confiscated a bunch of the cartoons I made in the back of class of her being mutilated by bombs and axes, dogs chewing her leg, whatever.

“And then she sent them back to me when I got famous (laughs). She’s been saving them; she said she knew something was going on there.”

Some of Carrey’s fans praised his artwork.

Others weren’t impressed.
