Actor Jim Carrey has seemingly gone bye-bye, as the once hilarious comedic actor has traded in tickling funny bones for agitating folks with politically themed artwork that is strange and bizarre to put it lightly.
Carrey has previously done paintings of Press Secretary Sarah Sanders mocking her looks, depicting Hobbes from “Calvin & Hobbes” peeing on Trump’s grave, and is now going for complete and utter insanity with a picture depicting demons taking over the White House.
What has happened to this guy?

In the painting posted on Tuesday, the White House windows are depicted as glowing red like fire where creepy eyes peer onto the unsuspecting world from within.
“And as the sun set upon the White House all its windows danced with glowing eyes — and demons’ voices growled to the prisoner within, saying, ‘Our name is legion, for we are many. You will be our hands in the world. It’s time for us to Tweet again,'” reads the caption.
The “prisoner” presumably being President Trump.

Here’s another sample of Carrey’s “art.”

It’s perfectly fine for Carrey to share his thoughts and views on the current administration. After all, that’s freedom of speech, one of the bedrocks of any free society. However, what is tragic is that this is a guy who used to have a desire to entertain people of all walks of life, to spread a little joy and happiness whenever he could.
Somewhere along the way, Carrey became a jaded adult who has lost perspective of the world around him, seeing only the negative parts, and is looking for someone convenient to blame. It’s not brave to create art with a majority opinion in culture.
It’s brave to truly engage the issues of the day from an objective standpoint, attempting to understand the other person’s point of view and find common ground, rather than continually tossing around insults.
It sure would be refreshing to see Carrey turn that direction.
