Jim Carrey responds to Mussolini's granddaughter's beef in typical fashion
Not a headline we ever thought that we'd have to write
Last week, we shared the news that the legendary actor Jim Carrey and Benito Mussolini's granddaughter, Alessandra, had been going at it on Twitter.
Carrey shared a graphic cartoon that he designed, alongside the caption: "If you’re wondering what fascism leads to, just ask Benito Mussolini and his mistress Claretta."

This led to Alessandra Mussolini simply replying: "You are a bastard".

It was a very strange thing altogether.
Carrey has since responded to the altercation, saying: “It’s a little disconcerting that she’s in government, not because she’s in government, but because she’s obviously still embracing evil".
Speaking to Variety, Carrey said that she should consider turning the image upside down, thus making it look like he's jumping for joy...

The actor has been sharing his political cartoon drawings since August 2017 and has previously taken aim at Donald Trump, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and America's gun policy in the past.
