The past several months has been a bit of a whirlwind for Jim Carrey. His former girlfriend’s sued him this summer, claiming he allegedly introduced her to cocaine and a variety of other vices. He made a bizarre appearance at a New York Fashion Week red carpet event in September where he told a reporter that “there’s no meaning to any of this.” And more recently, the “Dumb And Dumber” actor revealed he’s struggling with depression.
So while it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Carrey has embarked on a new path to find meaning by way of politics, it’s still pretty rattling.
In recent weeks, Carrey has released a variety of paintings depicting famous people.

Some paintings provide commentary on politics and high profile Republicans.

Rubio‘s agenda is clear. Keep taking millions from the NRA and wash the blood of innocent children off his hands. Apparently $3.3 million is the price of this politician’s soul. pic.twitter.com/wom4IrTfsj

It should no longer be a surprise to people that Caveman Trump would hire a man like Porter, who’s accused of beating his wives. If you want nasty things done, you hire nasty people. That’s how criminal syndicates thrive. #impeachprehistoricpotus pic.twitter.com/86JaEMcp2M

This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous! pic.twitter.com/MeYLTy1pqb

But Carrey has also been critical of Facebook. Last month, he told his followers he was “dumping” his stock in the company because he believed it “profited from Russian interference in our elections and they’re still not doing enough to stop it.” He urged his followers to consider a boycott too.
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 pic.twitter.com/KHWgZzhhmp

And today, he followed up his skepticism of the tech giant with yet another painting of Mark Zuckerberg.
“Who are you sharing your life with?” he tweeted.

Facebook received heavy public skepticism this week after it was reported that the company partnered with UK-based tech firm Cambridge Analytica to work with the Trump campaign and gather data from private citizens prior to the election. Facebook lost $64 billion in market value after initial reports of the partnership surfaced.
And while these revelations have caused a degree of public concern, it’s no secret that Jim Carrey is having something of a psychotic meltdown. The man simply is not well.
