Jim Carrey Makes Major Announcement In 'Truman Show' Style
Actor and artist Jim Carrey announced in a Twitter post inspired by his 1998 film "The Truman Show" that he will stop his comic strip shutdowns from Donald Trump.
A self-portrait from the film shows the actor as the title character who will walk through a door to the outside world towards the end. "In case I don't see you" is the headline, mimicking some of Truman's departure. ("Good afternoon, good evening and good night," he added in the film.)

"In the last four years, among other things, I have put considerable effort into this collection of political protest caricatures," wrote the comic star in a link. "It really feels like you and I crossed an ocean of outrage together ... but something tells me it's time to rest my social media hammer and regain some neurological bandwidth."
Carrey's often grotesque cartoons of Trump became fan-favorite and featured regularly on HuffPost.
The "Sonic the Hedgehog" star, who played Joe Biden on "Saturday Night Live" for several weeks, emphasized that he undertook the comic book criticism of Trump as a passion project.
"I just assumed that a radicalized America was a threat to us all," he wrote. "When a madman grabs the wheel of the bus laden with innocent passengers and threatens to drive it off a cliff, it tends to steal everyone's focus."
