Actor and comedian Jim Carrey is facing backlash on social media after he posted a painting on social media that is believed to be a portrait of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked! Monstrous!” Carrey tweeted on Saturday night.

The tweet was accompanied by a painting of a woman that resembled Sanders. A spokesman for Carrey confirmed that it is Carrey’s painting, but would not confirm it is of Sanders.
Many other Twitter users responded to Carrey’s post by defending Sanders and criticizing Carrey for personally attacking her.
Sanders’ father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, tore into Carrey for his post, calling him a “Christaphobe.”
“What would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a ‘so-called Muslim’ or ‘so-called Jew?’” Huckabee tweeted.
Pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & "Christaphobe" @jimcarrey attacks @PressSec for her faith; what would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a "so-called Muslim" or "so-called Jew?" #classlessCarrey https://t.co/HCqHoER0Ru

Other conservatives are also up in arms:
My husband and I love Sarah Huckabee Sanders. If Jim Carey suddenly feels a need to attack a lovely Christian woman with all the evil women on TV that we see, well Carey is apparently demon possessed. He hasn't been funny in yrs

Typical Hollywood bully they speak tolerance all day long unless it’s someone that don’t have the same views as them he’s a washed up hack Sarah Sanders is smart and decent person who I’m sure does not care what Carey thinks of her!

Carrey is as creepy as even Hollywood can offer. The clown was about as funny as diarrhea in church

The portrait even got the folks upset over at Trump’s favorite “news” program, Fox and Friends.
“There is absolutely no tolerance [from liberals for conservatism],” Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens told Fox & Friends‘ Ainsley Earhardt. “They’re completely hypocritical in every single regard. We see this time and time again.”
“It is not Christian-like whatsoever,” she continued. “I think it’s a moment for us as conservatives to just look better, take the upper hand, and to say, you know what, you can keep leveling these attacks against us, but we’re not responding to it with the exact same ugliness because we have more to offer, more education, better comments. We can argue with logic. We don’t need to argue with ad hominem attacks all the time.”
Earhardt then brought the conversation around to discuss what the portrait means for liberal feminism.
“They celebrate women, only if women think exactly like they do,” Owens said. “That is, again, always what we see on the left. You have to subscribe to exactly what they think or else you will get attacked.”
“Hypocrisy, hypocrisy is thy name,” she concluded.
