Jim Carrey mocks Melania Trump in controversial political art: ‘Worst first lady’

Comedian ruffled feathers when he targeted former first lady Melania Trump in a tweet

Jim Carrey shared a controversial piece of political art on Friday about former first lady Melania Trump.

The cartoon-style illustration features an up-close and smiling Trump, 50, in front of a turquoise backdrop. To the right, the picture features a caption in pink lettering that says, "Oh...and goodbye worst first lady. I hope the settlement can finance your life in the shallow end. Thx for nothing."

Carrey did not share a caption of his own when he shared his tweet Friday afternoon. However, the post received more than 25,900 likes, 2,500 retweets and 371 quote tweets as on Sunday morning.

Multiple commenters called out the 59-year-old comedian for his critical post. Others expressed their disappointment about Carrey’s views, going as far to write that the cartoon is "sexist," "anti female" and filled with "hypocrisy" for someone who identifies themselves as left-leaning.

Stacey Abrams, Vice President Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden.

"Though my term was only meant to be 6 weeks, I was thrilled to be elected as your SNL President...comedy’s highest call of duty," Carrey tweeted when he first announced his departure from the sketchy comedy show. "I would love to go forward knowing that Biden was the victor because I nailed that s---. But I am just one in a long line of proud, fighting SNL Bidens!"
