Jim Carrey Feeds Robert E. Lee to the Fish in New Cartoon
Jim Carrey has a suggestion where to place the Robert E. Lee statue: at the bottom of the ocean.
In a new illustration released on Friday in honor of Juneteenth, the comedian and actor showed the Confederate Soldier statue, which is currently located in Charlottesville, Virginia. It is covered with barnacles and a mocking object for a passing eel and a fish with side eyes.
"Happy June 19th! Find a more suitable place for Robert E. Lee here. ; ^ P, ”Carrey tweeted next to his drawing.

Lee was one of the best-known commanders who fought for the Confederate Army during the Civil War. He owned slaves and subjected them to physical punishment; He also argued that slavery was good for blacks and kidnapped free blacks by his army and brought them back south to be enslaved again. Nevertheless, Lee has remained a cultural icon in the south and still has numerous monuments across the country.
Amid protests against police violence and racism in America, numerous monuments to Confederate soldiers have been demolished, including in Virginia, Kentucky, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and Washington, D.C.
Earlier this month, Taylor Swift also condemned "racist historical figures" and urged her home state of Tennessee not to replace a statue of Edward Carmack, whom she described as the "white supremacist newspaper editor" who published the Pro Lynch editorial and the arson the Ida B. Wells office, which had been crushed by demonstrators.

"The removal of statues will not resolve centuries of systemic oppression, violence, and hatred that black people endured, but it could bring us a step closer to making ALL Tennesseans and visitors to our state feel safe - not just the white ones." , she wrote on Twitter.
