Actor Jim Carrey under fire over 'so-called Christian' painting
Actor Jim Carrey has caused a Twitter storm after sharing online a portrait he painted that is widely believed to be of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
The comedian shared an image of a 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!"
The Mask star was criticised for his use of the term "so-called Christian" with one Twitter user tweeting in reference to Matthew 7: "Judge not least you be judged by that same measure. Be aware that we often use different measures. But this is a warning."
While another person tweeted: "If Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a Christian then Hitler was a Rabbi, good for Jim Carrey for putting that opinion into a form of artistic expression. Kudos."

Some Twitter users also accused Carrey of shaming because of the unflattering portrait.
