Mike Huckabee Calls Jim Carrey a ‘Christaphobe’ after the Actor Tweets about His Daughter

Mike Huckabee Calls Jim Carrey a ‘Christaphobe’ after the Actor Tweets about His Daughter March 20, 2018

Jim Carrey recently drew a portrait of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House Press Secretary who has gotten a lot of heat for her defenses of her boss, President Donald Trump.  He wrote, “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!” as a caption to a hideous image.

Sanders, who is also the daughter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, was widely defended (and mocked) on the internet as a result of the famous actor’s tweet.  (A Carrey rep confirmed that Carry himself had created the image.)  Religious News reports:

Twitter users knocked Carrey for his use of the word “Christian.”

“We all sin,” one user tweeted in response. Another shared a meme of someone lifting the lid of a trash can. “Hey look celebrity opinions,” the photo’s text read. One Twitter user shared a photo of Carrey, writing “And this is the picture if (sic) a has-been, who hasn’t put out a decent movie in 15 years.”

Then, her father came to her defense, as only a dad can.  He wrote, “Pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & “Christaphobe” @jimcarrey attacks @PressSec for her faith; what would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a “so-called Muslim” or “so-called Jew?”

Carrey, for this part, loved the fact that he riled up the political class:

“I am so gratified by the reaction to my little drawings. It is the job of a political cartoon to vex those who abuse power or enable those abuses,” his statement read. “This administration has been lying to the American people from day one while plundering the country and debasing our values. And those who cover for this shameful mobster of a President are putting makeup on a melanoma and telling the cancer patient that everything’s fine. Monstrous? You bet!”
