Funnyman Jim Carrey calls it as he sees it. The actor, who is also a talented artist, has addressed the apparent suicide of financier and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Carrey addressed the issue through art. He has titled his latest painting “Murder.”
In the new painting part of Epstein’s face is visible with, “No suicide watch is murder” written across his forehead. Epstein is inside a partially zipped body bag.
Epstein, 66, was found hanging in his cell and in cardiac arrest early Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Allegedly, Epstein hung himself with his prison bedsheets.
It did not take long for conspiracy theories to spread like wildfire on social media. Donald Trump fueled the flames of those conspiracy theories by retweeting a post that accused the Clintons of having Epstein killed.
Epstein was awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy. He was facing a possible 45 years in prison. Epstein had been put on suicide back in July after he was found semi-conscious in the fetal position on the floor. He had bruises on his neck and prison authorities believed he had attempted suicide. He was taken off suicide watch at the end of July.
Carrey had taken aim at Epstein’s powerful connections back in February. Donald Trump and Bill Clinton both made a cameo in a painting.
Carrey also painted a photo of Trump, Epstein, and a crying young girl. He captioned the piece on Twitter with a quote from Donald Trump back in 2002.
“I’ve known Jeff [Epstein] for 15 years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with,” Trump told New York Magazine at the time. “It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
When that quote resurfaced, Trump did all he could to distance himself from Epstein. “I had a falling out with him a long time ago. I don’t think I’ve spoken to him for 15 years,” Trump said during a press conference. “I was not a fan of his.”
It is probably a good bet that Trump is not a fan of Carrey’s either.
Carrey isn’t the only Hollywood celebrity who has publicly aired their suspicions about Epstein’s death. Jamie Lee Curtis, George Takei, Jeffrey Wright, Patricia Arquette, and Rosie O’Donnell, among others, also questioned whether Epstein’s death was really suicide.
