Jim Carrey Defends Kathy Griffin's Trump Photo Shoot, Says Comedians are the 'Last Voice of Truth'

Jim Carrey is coming to Kathy Griffin‘s defense after she was found herself under criticism for posing with President Donald Trump‘s bloody head.

While attending the premiere of I’m Dying Up Here last night, the 55-year-old actor addressed the controversy, saying that comedians should speak up more about politics.

“I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times because that line is not real,” Jim said via Entertainment Tonight.

After the photo went viral, Kathy apologized for the reaction she received and said that she “went too far.”

“If you step out into that spotlight and you’re doing the crazy things that [Trump is] doing we’re the last line of defense,” Jim said. “And really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing. It’s impossible to get away from it.”

    I kinda agree with Carrey, but a severed head something that is linked to terrorists is not something we should be emulating. no matter what.

    So it is OK just because a comedian can make fun of any topic and being disrespectful?

  • Derek117

    Carrey, Griffins, and Shields are all wrong! In a civilized society there is Respect. That photo not only disrespected Trump (who may deserve it) but his family, and the rest us who viewed it. Especially those who have had relatives beheaded by terrorists.

    screw you jim Carrey you wacky puke, who needs a comedian in the first place, not a special one anyway, anybody can be a comedian and that is all the comedian anybody needs, we don’t need any of this cut your head off crap, ISIS dose a good enough job at that one without making fun of it

    Too bad that Jim Carrey has no heart or soul either. He seemed to at one time in his acting career. Not real? The 11 year old Barron Trump thought the image was real when he glanced at the TV news. Last line of defense? We witnessed the last line of defense last November – it’s the American People Jim, defending ourselves from the career criminal, liar, and sellout Hillary Clinton.

    this guy talks outta his ass…sometimes LITERALLY.

  • Cruizin1960

    Carrey is wrong….TOTALLY wrong. Griffin’s “truth” was her views and opinions. That does not make it truth.

  • Vicki Fitzgerald

    Comedians are the last voice of truth? What an over inflated sense of self.

  • sam

    HaHa…Really, the fuck?! What a hypocrite! Take your own advice, start telling the truth.
