The Ace Ventura actor was responding to Ivey’s signing into law on Wednesday of a controversial bill that banned all abortions except in cases of a medical emergency.
On his Twitter account, Carrey posted a caricature showing Ivey as a fetus still attached to an umbilical cord.
A large hypodermic needle is then inserted into Ivey’s head.
Carrey’s image included the caption: ‘I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama.’
The graphic tweet was met with an online backlash from social media users who said Carrey was suffering from poor mental health.
‘Wow…Get help,’ tweeted one Twitter user.
Another Twitter user asked: ‘Are you okay…??’
‘Not for a while now,’ responded another Twitter user.
Liz Wheeler, a conservative commentator, tweeted: ‘Thank you for the truly accurate (and therefore horrifying) portrayal of abortion… sucking out the brains of a PERSON because that person is inconvenient to you.
‘You blessed the pro life movement with this.’
Lauren Surratt tweeted: ‘This should be the end of your twitter activity. Period.
‘If anyone else would have posted it, they would be deactivated.’
Shireen Qudosi tweeted: ‘This is an incredibly vile illustration.
‘Someone who is truly woke, and has achieved a higher level of spiritual enlightenment, has expanded their consciousness, WOULD NOT ever produce this.
‘You can be against abortion [without] resorting to this.’
