Jim Carrey's Portrait of Sarah Huckabee Sanders Divides Twitter After Offending 'Fox & Friends'

Fox News once again takes issue with the comedian, who has been sharing his artwork to make political statements as of late.

Jim Carrey is back in the crosshairs of Fox News again, this time for tweeting out his unflattering portrait of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked," the actor-turned-painter tweeted Saturday. "Monstrous!"

The attention from the divisive picture -- applauded by some and blasted by others, for obvious reasons -- sent Carrey's name to the top of Twitter trends Monday, after he was blasted on "Fox & Friends."

"Where's the tolerance here?" co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked while setting up her guest Candace Owens, a spokeswoman for conservative non-profit organization Turning Point USA, to take shots at Democrats, liberalism and feminism through the celebrity news peg.

"There is absolutely no tolerance. They’re completely hypocritical in every single regard. We see this time and time again," Owens said in her rebuttal, then turned to Carrey's use of the word "Christian" in his tweet.

"It's ugly. It is not Christian-like whatsoever," she continued. "I think it’s a moment for us as conservatives to just look better, take the upper hand, and to say, you know what, you can keep leveling these attacks against us, but we’re not responding to it with the exact same ugliness because we have more to offer, more education, better comments. We can argue with logic. We don’t need to argue with ad hominem attacks all the time."

(Apparently, Owens has never seen President Donald Trump's Twitter feed.)

Earhardt then showed Fox viewers another one of Carrey's paintings, which he said "offers an expression of love and appreciation to womankind," then teed up her guest to dig in on liberal "hypocrisy."

"They celebrate women, only if women think exactly like they do," Owens said. "That is, again, always what we see on the left. You have to subscribe to exactly what they think or else you will get attacked. Hypocrisy, hypocrisy is thy name."

Carrey previously pissed off Fox News and conservatives in 2013 when he teamed up with Funny or Die for NRA parody music video "Cold Dead Hands," in which he impersonated Charleston Heston, an actor who was once the president of the National Rifle Association.
