Jim Carrey tweeted on Tuesday, announcing that he’s leaving Twitter while also sharing an animation project he’s been working on based on one of his paintings.
“I’m leaving Twitter, but 1st, here’s a cartoon I made with my friend Jimmy Hayward,” the actor said. “It’s based on my painting of a crazy old Lighthouse Keeper, standing naked in a storm, summoning the angels and shining his lamp to guide us through a treacherous night. I love you all so much!” Carey, who has just under 19 million followers on Twitter, mocked Elon Musk earlier on Twitter, saying, “Musk is going where no unbridled ego has gone before.” He also attached his painting of the SpaceX CEO below the tweet. “Capt Smirk fired 1/2 his crew. He’s banning comics: shadow-banning unverified users, boldly going where no unbridled ego has gone before,” Carrey wrote in his tweet. “Says, “$8/mo is the price of a latte.” True. It’s also cheaper than a T-shirt saying “Rob me. I’m a gullible ass!” BTW Mars mission? FAKE NEWS.”
