Jim Carrey isn’t mincing words when it comes to Brett Kavanaugh. The actor ripped into the Supreme Court Justice nominee with the release of his latest painting, which includes a caption that refers to Kavanaugh as an “entitled little shit.” Two women have come forward accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Deborah Ramirez told The New Yorker Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while in college at Yale, which Carrey used as the basis to criticize universities at large.

“Colleges care more about donors than the victims of on-campus rape,” Carrey wrote in the caption. “That’s why women don’t report it and why ENTITLED LITTLE SHITS like Injustice Kavanaugh get to party and pillage their way to the Supreme Court.I’d like to suggest a new uniform for the highest court in the land.”

Kavanaugh’s nomination to join the Supreme Court has caused extreme backlash, not only because of the accusations of sexual misconduct against him but also because of his controversial pro-life views on abortion. The liberal advocacy group Demand Justice protested Kavanaugh earlier this month by having members wear “Handmaid’s Tale” costumes in Washington D.C.

Carrey’s anti-Kavanaugh portrait arrives in the midst of his acting comeback as the star of Showtime’s “Kidding,” now airing Sunday nights. The actor has used his second career as a painter to criticize Trump for much of 2018.
