    In this September 5, 2017 file photo, Jim Carrey walks the red carpet ahead of the 'Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - The Story of Jim Carrey & Andy Kaufman Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton' screening during the 74th Venice Film Festival at Sala Grande on September 5, 2017 in Venice, Italy.

    Jim Carrey is being criticized on social media for a portrait he painted that is believed to be White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

    The actor and comedian on Saturday tweeted the painting with the caption: "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!"

    Some Twitter users accused Carrey of shaming because of the unflattering portrait. Others were critical of his use of Christian.

    A spokeswoman for Carrey confirms it is his painting. But she would not confirm it is Sanders.
