Jim Carrey takes aim at Louis CK in new painting following comments against Parkland shooting survivors
Comedian Jim Carrey took aim at Louis CK in his new painting after an audio clip emerged from a comeback set in which the latter mocked school shooting survivors and non-binary people.
The Kidding star took to Twitter on Thursday and shared a photo of his new painting of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student and shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez, in response to Louis's stand-up set.

Captioned “Louie can’t C. K?”, the painting shows Gonzalex sporting a T-shirt that reads “March For Our Lives” and towering over CK, who is represented by a lilliputian stick figure version with his penis out.
The top of the painting reads, “drawn to scale.”
CK's two-minute clip, which was uploaded to Twitter on Sunday, marked a hard right turn for the comedian, who until his downfall in 2017 was feted as one of the greatest comedians of his generation and known for a liberal outlook.
The Louie star began by taking aim at today's youngsters, ridiculing their political correctness and telling his audience their lives are "just boring" compared to the drug-fueled antics of his time. He then turned on the survivors of the Parkland school massacre, many of whom became gun-control activists in the aftermath of the February 2018 shooting by a lone gunman that left 17 dead.
