Jim Carrey is, once again, looking to pick a fight and seems like he's ready to throw down some real punches from his corner of the ring. The comic actor drew a scathing caricature of US President Donald Trump, where he also blamed the POTUS for the massacres at two New Zealand mosques last week.

The 'Ace Ventura' actor posted a drawing on his Twitter account on Monday that showed a meteor-like figure with Trump’s head and hair in a flaming ball of fire headed towards the Earth. There was also a swastika drawn on Trump's forehead, while his eyes are colored in all-white and his mouth remains open, reports Daily Mail.

The caption in the tweet reads: "Innocent people are now being slaughtered, families ruined and children's lives destroyed. All in his name. If the Craven Republican Senate allows this vile miscreant to continue encouraging divisiveness, the “Trump Presidency” will become an EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT."

Carrey's outrageous painting comes after the star posted another drawing on Saturday of himself crying in response to the carnage in Christchurch. "My heart is with you New Zealand," he wrote alongside the painting. "My tears are for all of us."



 

It was on Friday that a lone gunman opened fire on two mosques and killed 50 people in mass shootings in the city of Christchurch, NZ. 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, a white supremacist, was charged with murder on Saturday. He is being held at a secure correctional facility where he has been segregated from other prisoners and is being observed 24x7.

Furthermore, Tarrant has not applied for bail or asked that his name is suppressed and is scheduled to make his next appearance in court on April 5 where he will defend himself as he has sacked his own lawyer. He is currently facing one count of murder, with more charges, including ones from the Terrorism Suppression Act, expected to be brought against him in the coming days.

For his part, Trump claims that his name was unnecessary dragged into the attacks, after Tarrant mentioned U.S President Donald Trump in his online manifesto. In a subsection that asks if he is or was "a supporter of Donald Trump", he wrote that while he did admire him, he wasn't fond of him as a leader.

"As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure," he wrote before adding, "As a policy maker and leader? Dear god no." He did, however, mention Conservative commentator and pro-Trump political activist Candance Owens, as the person who "radicalized" him the most.  "The person that has influenced me above all was Candace Owens," he said explaining that he was floored by her views.
