Actor Jim Carrey has dedicated his off-screen hiatus to creating controversial political art. In his latest painting, the 56-year-old big screen veteran takes on Fox News host Sean Hannity.


Posted to Twitter on Tuesday morning, the painting shows Hannity in a wrestling match with Alex Jones while dead-eyed onlookers cheer. Hitler is pictured on the left, raising the Nazi salute. Carrey's cartoon comes in response to on-air scripts news anchors who work for Sinclair Broadcasting are forced to read.

"If u believe wrestling is real u may even believe Fox news, Info Wars and the robotic drones on Sinclair Broadcasting. But wrestling doesn't harm viewers. Performers like Sean Hannity and Alex Jones should join the WWE where their hyperbole will do less damage to the culture."

Here's his latest depiction of Trump's nominee for National Security Adviser, Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton.

"Coming soon! 'National Security Adviser 2: Armageddon Boogaloo'"

Carrey's controversial paintings have been stirring audiences for months. Last week, he debuted a portrait of President Donald Trump yelling over a bowl of ice cream.

"Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery @NPG, I know it's early but I'd like to submit this as the official portrait of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump. It's called, 'You Scream. I Scream. Will We Ever Stop Screaming?'"

His March 28th rendition of NRA head Wayne LaPierre showed no mercy either. Carrey called LaPierre "Putin's stooge."

"They're saying the NRA took Russian money to support the Republican party in the last election. Maybe that's why Trump and his flying monkeys are so accommodating? Is Wayne LaPierre also Putin's stooge -- or just another run of the mill demon from hell? #BanTheNRA"

Carrey has also portrayed Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner as the devil in "Self-Unmade Man." Kushner inherited hundreds of millions of dollars worth of New York City real estate from his father, and was handed a senior position in the White House solely because of his closeness to Trump. The 666 symbolizes Kushner's flagship building, 666 5th Avenue.

And his portrait of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders drew its own controversy last month, in which Carrey knocks her as a liar posing as a Christian.

"This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!"

Carrey's art has a healthy social media following, although interpretations and appreciation varies greatly from person to person. Most Twitter users see Carrey's art as political dissent, and perfectly within his right to free speech.
