Declaring that he “will remain nameless,” Carrey wrote that the man “was lecturing me about morality and civility after spending years in the Senate defending the rights of mass murderers to own AR-15s with which they massacre innocent children in their classrooms.”

He concluded with: “I thought I must be dreaming, but I haven’t woken up yet.”

The tweet came about a day after Cruz criticized Carrey’s previous politically charged artwork.

This is not OK,” the Republican wrote. “Today’s Left: vicious, angry & consumed by hate. Instead of insults & dehumanizing rage, we should return to civility. I disagree w/ Carrey’s politics, but believe we should respect his humanity nonetheless. I wish he could reciprocate.”
