A spokesman for Carrey confirmed to The Associated Press that it is Carrey's painting, but would not confirm it is of Sanders.

"This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only goal in life is to lie for the wicked", he tweeted, captioning the painting.

After sharing the sketch online, Carrey was met by a backlash from right-wing figures on both social media and Fox News. Along with the painting, Carrey tweeted the caption: "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only goal in life is to lie for the wicked".

On Monday, the "Ace Ventura" actor shared a rendering of President Trump, depicting him as "THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST WING", which followed his portrait of Sarah Huckabee Sanders that he shared over the weekend.




The tweet quickly went viral as Twitter users began to speculate whether the portrait was indeed of Sanders, criticizing Carrey for "mocking" Christianity.

Another added, "This is one more reason that I'm done with Hollywood". It's ok to be mean and hurtful as long as it's to someone you disagree with, right? Others pointed out that the arguments against the artwork could be seen as hypocritical.

After stepping away from acting for the most part over the past few years, Jim Carrey has turned to another creative outlet.
