Actor Jim Carrey branched out from his usual portraits of President Trump’s administration on Friday, instead painting a former Kent State University student whose gun-toting graduation photos went viral.


Carrey uploaded his artwork to Twitter on Friday, depicting Kaitlin Bennett posing with her AR-10 on the Ohio campus.

“And the devil said, ‘Thanks a bunch Goldilocks. Enjoy the show in Santa Fe tomorrow. Someday, real soon, I’ll have you for dinner,’ ” Carrey captioned his portrait.

Carrey was referencing Friday’s shooting at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, that left 10 people dead and as many injured.

Bennett responded to Carrey’s portrait, calling it “disgusting.”

“Jim you should be the one in this picture with this caption,” Bennett tweeted. “You’re the one that supports gun control policies that let these kids die. Is this what you have to do because you’ve become irrelevant? Disgusting. #GunControlKills

Bennett has been met with harsh criticism from gun control activists who quickly pointed out that her campus was the site of the 1970 killings of four university students by the Ohio National Guard.

She took to Twitter to defend herself and swap jabs with survivors of February’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Bennett took the opportunity to capitalize on her elevated social media presence Saturday, saying that it was time for her account to be verified by Twitter because there are “left-wing celebrities who are also drawing pictures of me.”

Carrey frequently posts artistic depictions mocking President Trump and members of his administration

He also painted incoming National Rifle Association President Oliver North as a snake this week.
