Jim Carrey has caused a social media stir with a painting of Melania Trump.
Carrey tweeted an image of his piece on Inauguration day, which reads: “Oh… and goodbye worst first lady. I hope the settlement can finance your life in the shallow end. Thx for nothing.”

Many have complimented the iconic actor for his work:
“Jim Carrey has an incredible eye for art. He truly captures her pure essence in this work. Masterpiece.
However, some took real offence to the painting and accused Carrey of bullying the former first lady:
“I think Melania was a fantastic First Lady. So elegant, graceful, kind and so beautiful. Make us laugh again Jim. Don’t bully innocent women.”
Another Twitter responded in outrage:
“Absolutely appalling to attack the first lady who did her job with grace and dignity and got nothing but criticism from everyone on the left. And it’s shameful that not one womant from the left defended another woman for these baseless attacks.”
