(WDHN) — Gov. Kay Ivey has drawn the ire of a well known Hollywood figure as a result of her signing the abortion bill last week.

Actor Jim Carrey painted the governor as a fetus getting aborted via the suction method, in which a catheter is used to remove all fetal tissue from the uterus. The tool is depicted as puncturing the governor’s head, deflating it.

“I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama,” the actor wrote on a Twitter post last Saturday, which you can find here.

Carrey has gotten attention for his portraits of political figures before, drawing particular controversy for the painting of Sarah Huckabee Sanders.


Carey also made many depictions of President Donald Trump. In the one below, he calls him “new king of lies.”

As of now, the tweet concerning Ivey has gotten 22,840 retweets, 112,014 likes, and around 17,000 responses.

Some of them, including comments from pro-life activists, criticize Carey for his graphic depiction of the governor, saying it is a violation of Twitter’s restrictions on promoting violence.

Others defended and praised Carey for his support of abortion rights. When it came to the graphic nature of the artwork, users defended it as a political cartoon.
