(Newser) – Jim Carrey is being criticized on social media for a portrait he painted that is believed to be White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The actor and comedian on Saturday tweeted the painting (see it here) with the caption: "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!" Some Twitter users accused Carrey of shaming because of the unflattering portrait; Fox News described her as painted in a "terrifyingly garish light."

Others were critical of his use of Christian. A spokeswoman for Carrey confirms it is his painting. But she would not confirm it is Sanders. The White House has not returned a message seeking comment, reports the AP. It's not Carrey's first foray into the world of political art: Business Insider in February rounded up 21 pieces of "politically charged artwork" he's tweeted.
