Trump Derangement Syndrome broke the brains of many entertainers.
Some even admitted to going to counseling for their issues.
And one Trump-deranged Hollywood star just got slammed by a colleague.
Jim Carrey was one of the most odious critics of Donald Trump over the past five years.
He created dozens of paintings depicting Trump and his family in the most vile ways imaginable.
One of Carrey’s pet issues with Trump was his immigration policy at the southern border, but he and other leftists have been largely silent at Joe Biden’s disastrous handling of the immigration crisis.
But Carrey was recently called out by fellow actor Martin Freeman, who played Dr. John Watson on the BBC series Sherlock, among many other roles.
Freeman appeared in the movie Man on the Moon, a biopic about the late eccentric comedian and actor Andy Kaufman.
During filming, Carrey made the decision to stay in character as Kaufman the entire time.
Some actors employ this “method” approach, but according to Freeman, Carrey took it to the extreme.
Freeman said during a podcast interview:
“I’m genuinely sure Jim Carrey is lovely and smart person…But it was the most self-aggrandizing, selfish f*cking narcissistic bullocks I’ve ever seen. And the idea that anything in our culture would celebrate that or support it is deranged…You’re not supposed to become the f*cking character because you’re supposed to be open to stuff that happens in real life because someone at some point is going to say ‘cut’ and there’s no point going, ‘What does “cut” mean because I’m Napoleon?’ Shut up.”
Man on the Moon came out in 1999, and at the time of the filming, Carrey was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
He essentially had carte blanche to do whatever he wanted, and apparently Freeman didn’t appreciate it.
“You need to keep grounded in reality and that’s not to say you don’t lose yourself at the time in between action and cut but the rest of it is absolutely pretentious nonsense…I think it’s highly amateurish. It’s essentially an amateurish notion because for me it’s not a professional attitude. Get the job done, man. F*cking do your work…Can you imagine if he had been anybody else? He would have been sectioned, let alone fired. He would have been got rid of.”
Like some other Canadian transplants in entertainment such as Seth Rogen and Samantha Bee, Carrey has far-left politics.
During a 2018 appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher, Carrey advocated for socialism:

Trump’s presidency helped clarify who the radical leftists were within entertainment.
Now Americans have a better idea of who’s propagating radical anti-American ideas in their work.
