We all know Jim Carrey is an amazing actor. The star of such classics as Me, Myself, and Irene, The Mask, and Bruce Almighty, Jim has delighted us for years with his uncannily elastic face and spastic physical comedy.
But did you know he was an artist and an activist too?
This week, reports surfaced that Alabama political candidate Judge Roy Moore had sexually assaulted several women when they were in their teens and he was in his thirties.

On Thursday night, however, Bannon ripped into the "Post", casting aspersions on the publication and its motivations.

This horrific spin was the straw that broke Jim Carrey's back. The comedian, who is no stranger to controversy, tweeted an image that he'd painted of the right wing pundit.
