Actor Jim Carrey has waded into the Brett Kavanaugh controversy with a cartoon steeped in political satire.

Carrey tweeted a drawing of a Supreme Court Justice wearing a ski mask over his face. He paired it with the following caption:

Colleges care more about donors than the victims of on-campus rape. That’s why women don’t report it and why ENTITLED LITTLE S**TS 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.

Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee has been accused by two women of sexual misconduct which allegedly happened during both high school and whilst he was studying at Yale University. The New Yorker broke the story when they reported that Deborah Ramirez, who attended Yale with him alleged that at a party he ‘thrust his penis in her face and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.’

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations, and during a recent appearance on Fox News, insisted: ‘I’m not going anywhere.’

The allegations have prompted Americans to protest his nomination and others are calling for it to be withdrawn.

This isn’t the first time Carrey criticised Kavanaugh.

Last week the 56-year-old comedian drew another cartoon, referencing the first allegation, in which Christine Blasey Ford claimed he sexually assaulted her while she was intoxicated at a party in school.

Carrey wrote:

Republicans always look out for each other.

Ford, who will be testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, had been the recipient of disparaging comments made by president Trump.

Of her allegations, he tweeted:

The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Accusations the likes of which have never been seen before!

In a previous tweet, he cast doubt on Dr Ford’s credibility, asking: ‘Why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago?’
