Rarely has someone fallen so far from grace as Jim Carrey.
I remember so many movies where he was light-hearted and funny….made millions laugh.
In fact, there’s nothing funny about him anymore.
He appears to be filled only with hate and it’s so awful to see.
His latest target?
The Covington high school students.
Not only is he going after teenagers, which many consider to be a target that’s off-hands, but he’s also just plain wrong.
The kids did nothing wrong.
Here’s what he posted with the caption “Baby Snakes”:
The USA Today had more on the vile painting:
Jim Carrey is taking on the controversial encounter between Covington Catholic High School students and a Native American elder in his latest artwork.
The actor and artist, 57, depicted elder Nathan Phillips playing his drum while being surrounded by several Kentucky students who mocked, stuck out their tongues and recorded the incident on a phone covered by a patriotic-themed case.
Carrey's drawing appears to include 17-year-old student Nicholas Sandmann, who stood face-to-face with Phillips in the viral video, replacing the teen's red MAGA hat with one that reads "hate again."
"Baby snakes," Carrey captioned his sketch on Twitter Wednesday.
The group of MAGA-wearing students, who attended the anti-abortion March for Life in Washington, drew widespread criticism over the viral clip, prompting their school and the Diocese of Covington to issue an apology.
However, additional video footage that surfaced painted another story of the encounter that seemed to show a group of four or five Black Hebrew Israelites as the aggressors.
Thank goodness we have Ted Cruz, who calls it like it is.
Ted had finally had enough and he hammered Carrey in a Tweet of his own:
Just sad. Rich & powerful celebrity uses his fame to pick on teenagers. So much partisan hate, he doesn’t care that the full video showed these high school students as victims of harassment, not the other way around. Jim, insult me, insult Trump, fine. But leave the kids alone.
Very well said Ted!
Here's more, from the Washington Examiner:
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, came to the defense of the Covington Catholic High School students at the center of a recent episode on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial that has triggered sharp criticism of them and even death threats.
Actor and comedian Jim Carrey on Tuesday tweeted a cartoon image depicting the students — who wore “Make America Great Again” hats during a confrontation with Native American activists on the steps of the Washington, D.C., landmark.
“Baby snakes,” the caption on Carrey's tweet said.
Cruz on Thursday strongly took issue with those remarks.
“Just sad. Rich & powerful celebrity uses his fame to pick on teenagers,” Cruz tweeted.
Initial reports portrayed the Covington students as aggressors in a confrontation with a Native American man. But new footage showed the teens fending off taunts from others present at the Lincoln Memorial.
“So much partisan hate, he doesn’t care that the full video showed these high school students as victims of harassment, not the other way around,” Cruz continued as he blasted Carrey. “Jim, insult me, insult Trump, fine. But leave the kids alone.”
Carrey is just the latest high-profile celebrity to vilify the Covington boys.
Earlier this week, comedian Kathy Griffin encouraged her Twitter followers to “dox” the teens, with the intent of making public their families' home addresses, along with other personal information.
