Jim Carrey slammed for portrait believed to be Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Carrey¿s Twitter account features dozens of pieces of his artwork and are often topic such as this one of Stephen Hawking who died last week at the age of 76

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

A Fox News obsession with actor Jim Carrey's portrait of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders may have propelled the painting into viral stardom.

In case you aren't already aware, Jim Carrey is a man of the arts.

"This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only goal in life is to lie for the wicked!"

The images sparked controversy with many on Twitter saying that Carrey was "bullying" Sanders and decrying the image's seeming mockery of Sanders' physical appearance.

Never one to resist an opportunity to capitalize on a bit of notoriety, Carrey followed up his inflammatory Sanders portrait today with a more high-concept piece. At least one took things a step further and taunted him about his girlfriend, who committed suicide.

Among those who slammed the painting was former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Sanders's father.

Carrey frequently shares his politically minded art on Twitter, and has created works inspired by various White House scandals in the past, including Trump's hiring of accused wife-beater Rob Porter, and his decision to golf in the aftermath of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting. The painting had over 70,000 likes and over 16,000 retweets at the time of publication.

Portraying Trump as a witch likely alludes to the President's frequent use of the term "witch hunt" on Twitter. Keep taking millions from the NRA and wash the blood of innocent children off his hands. Just last week, Carrey shared his painting of Stephen Hawking and other more abstract work.
