Jim Carrey retires from anti-Donald Trump political cartoons
Jim Carrey is calling it quits on his political cartoons, a passion project that made waves during former President Donald Trump’s administration.
Carrey wrote on Twitter on Saturday that he’s stopping the cartoons, often dark caricatures of Trump and his supporters, to “reclaim a little neurological bandwidth.”
The “Dumb and Dumber” actor took a parting shot at his usual target, referring to Trump as “Orange Julius Caesar” ruling “his Empire of Lies.”
“For the past 4 yrs, among other commitments, I put considerable effort into this collection of political protest cartoons. It truly feels as though you and I have crossed an ocean of outrage together,” Carrey wrote. “But something tells me it’s time to rest my social media gavel.”
