Jim Carrey's been employing his artistic abilities to strike at members of the Trump administration with vulgar portraits. His latest piece de resistance, however, had the comedian painting in broader strokes beyond the White House and into the realm of tech.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is the latest entrant into Carrey's gallery of shame.
The actor/comedian depicted Zuckerberg as the irascible "Marvin the Martian" from the Looney Tunes cartoons –– the soft-spoken alien who is capable of massive destruction.
Carrey tweeted the portrait with the caption:
Congress gets a visit from planet Zuckerberg. "I shall prevent any further election meddling by destroying the Earth with my Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator App! The sudden drop in Facebook's stock has made me angry! VERY ANGRY INDEED!!!"

Carrey's swipe at Zuckerberg came after the co-founder of Facebook testified before members of Congress earlier this week to respond to the Cambridge Analytica data breach and to discuss how to optimize the platform's security and performance.

The recent caricature of Zuckerberg is Carrey's second strike. Back in February, the actor deleted his Facebook account and sold his stock because of the platform's involvement with Russian meddling during the 2016 election.
I'm dumping my @facebook stock and deleting my page because @facebook profited from Russian interference in our elections and they're still not doing enough to stop it. I encourage all other investors who care about our future to do the same. #unfriendfacebook

Carrey's collection continues to expand, using art to express social and political outrage.
He brandished his brush to mock Donald Trump on two occasions. Carrey's recent bashing of the president was posted on March 29 in which he captioned the unflattering portrait as a suggestion for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, titled, "You Scream. I Scream. Will We Ever Stop Screaming?"
Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery @NPG, I know it’s early but I’d like to submit this as the official port… https://t.co/CtsLPk6Zn7— Jim Carrey (@Jim Carrey)1522340853.0
Carrey also turned his brush on the director of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, who rejects the scientific consensus on climate change. Last year, the EPA approved a pipeline expansion project that was linked to the same period Pruitt was renting a fancy condo for $50 a night from the wife of a lobbyist representing the pipeline's owner.
I looked on Trivago. The cheapest room in Washington is a youth hostel with bunkbeds at $81 a night. The $50 room S… https://t.co/OdUXQUPM5B— Jim Carrey (@Jim Carrey)1522952645.0
Carrey also took on the media, pitting Fox News Host Sean Hannity and InfoWars host Alex Jones against each other as WWE fighters.

Supporters of Carry's work piled on the praise for Zuckerberg as "Marvin the Martian."

Some contributed their own artistic take on the scorned Internet entrepreneur.

There is no indication that Carrey is finished with his artistic expressions.
