Jim Carrey’s Alabama tweet gets surprising reaction from conservatives: ‘thank you’ for ‘truly accurate portrayal of abortion’

Jim Carrey’s career has taken a very strange turn in recent years. Once the beloved star of hit films like “Dumb and Dumber” and “Liar Liar,” he is now known more for posting politically motivated, sometimes vulgar paintings on Twitter.

His latest targeted the new anti-abortion law in Alabama, but the image is having an effect that Carrey probably never expected.

The gross image depicts Alabama Governor Kay Ivey as a pre-born baby being aborted. The fact that the image is so vulgar and hard to look at actually works against Carrey’s point and shows the more grotesque and negative side to abortions.

“I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama,” Carrey tweeted with the image.

Check out the tweet below:

Conservatives have rallied against Carrey and his tweet. Some have even thanked him for showing the “horrifying” truth behind abortion.

“Thank you for the truly accurate (and therefore horrifying) portrayal of abortion… sucking out the brains of a PERSON because that person is inconvenient to you. You blessed the pro life movement with this,” tweeted conservative commentator Liz Wheeler.

Daily Wire editor in chief Ben Shapiro called the painting a “pretty great depiction of abortion.”

“This is a pretty great depiction of an abortion: clinically accurate, and wiping out an individual human life,” he wrote.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said the image perfectly exemplifies how the modern left is “consumed by hate.”

“This is not OK. Today’s Left: vicious, angry & consumed by hate. Instead of insults & dehumanizing rage, we should return to civility. I disagree w/ Carrey’s politics, but believe we should respect his humanity nonetheless. I wish he could reciprocate,” the senator wrote.

Outspoken Trump supporter and conservative singer Kaya Jones expressed disappointment over Carrey’s tweet saying she used to be a fan of the actor.

“You were one of my favorite actors. Honestly I’m disgusted by your lack of respect for the image is what happens to babies. They are sucked out of the mother. Shame on you Jim,” she wrote.

Carrey should probably spend more time on his career and less time on these paintings, especially considering he can’t even get the messaging right when he releases them. As the comedic actor has become more and more political and vitriolic through his Twitter account, his career has started to seriously suffer.

Carrey hasn’t had a bona fide hit since 2009’s “A Christmas Carol.” Even 2014’s “Dumb and Dumber” sequel failed to live up to expectations at the box office.

Besides a critically acclaimed turn on the dark Showtime series “Kidding,” Carrey has mostly acted in films barely released in theaters like “Dark Crimes” and “The Bad Batch.” Haven’t heard of those? Don’t worry. Only a handful of people actually have.

Next up for the actor? He’s appearing in “Sonic the Hedgehog,” a film that had such a poor reception when its first trailer recently dropped online that the director promised to reedit and redesign the picture before its November release.
