The painting is of Cruz and includes a message, which reads:
Some greasy Joe McCarthy wanna-be, who is shameless and will remain nameless, was lecturing me in the press about morality and civility after spending years in the Senate defending the rights of mass murderers to own AR-15s with which they massacre innocent children in their classrooms.
I thought I must be dreaming, but I haven't woken up yet. I guess this hypocrisy is the new American Dream.
At the bottom, he adds:
Gee...I hope the loss of women's rights, our enslavement by the drug companies and the unnecessary war in Iran won't disturb anyone's slumber.
Cruz has long been a supporter of the National Rifle Association and has blocked attempts to ban on assault weapons. He isn’t the only person Carrey has offended with his art. Earlier this year, rather bizarrely, Carrey found himself in a Twitter spat with the granddaughter of Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.
