We have always known Jim Carrey as being a fantastic actor but recently he has been making a name for himself as a talented artist.
Although he has been passionate about art his whole life, this past week his paintings have been in the headlines as he has tackled controversial topics, mostly US politics, with his brush.
The 56-year-old’s most recent work has been his most scandalous though as it portrays US President Donald Trump having sex with Stormy Daniels.
Carrey called it Fifty Shades of Decay:
The former adult actress, real name Stephanie Clifford, claims she slept with Trump numerous times before he was president, wanting to go public with her alleged decade-old affair in the lead up to the election.
At the time, 2016, Daniels alleges she was paid $130,000 by Trump’s then lawyer Michael Cohen to stay quiet about the relationship in a ‘hush agreement’.
Now suing the president, Daniels filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles’ Superior Court on Tuesday March 7 suggesting Trump was aware of the agreement and the money was intended to influence the election’s outcome.

Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, who has close ties to the Democrats, shared the lawsuit on his Twitter page.
Earlier today, we filed this complaint seeking a ct order voiding the alleged ‘hush’ agreement between our client S. Clifford aka Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump.

With the scandal gripping America, it is no wonder Carrey decided to address it in his most recent artwork.
Receiving over 16,000 retweets and 58,000 likes at time of writing (March 24), it appears Twitter users are a fan of the painting.
Bravo, Jim!! Perfection!

Outrageously funny! I wish there was a way to send Carrey’s cartoons to Trump’s Fanatical Evangelical Cultists & Deplorables! I know with their “senses of humor,” they’d love to have them!

Earlier this week Carrey took a shot at Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a portrait as his company faces huge controversy.
His painting follows reports that revealed data firm Cambridge Analytica attained private information from 50 million Facebook users.

The actor previously slammed Zuckerberg via portrait in February when he said he was deleting his Facebook stock and page.
In a statement provided to Business Insider at the time, Carrey said:
For a long time America enjoyed a geographical advantage in the world with oceans on both sides to protect it.
Now, social media has created cyber-bridges over which those who do not have our best interest in mind can cross, and we are allowing it. No wall is going to protect us from that.
We must encourage more oversight by the owners of these social media platforms. This easy access has to be more responsibly handled.
What we need now are activist investors to send a message that responsible oversight is needed. What the world needs now is capitalism with a conscience.
The painting of Trump and Daniels is not the first time Carrey has featured the president in his art.
Last year the actor painted a picture of Trump kissing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s buttocks.
He has also taken aim at Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Republican party senator candidate Roy Moore (who was accused of sexual misconduct) and others from the president’s inner circle.
