Italian politician Alessandra Mussolini has publicly insulted Jim Carrey after he tweeted a drawing of the hanging of her grandfather, Benito Mussolini, and Claretta Petacci.

As the Carrey’s tweet gained traction on Twitter, Mussolini, a MEP for Forza Italia, reacted angrily and insulted the Canadian actor. Carrey, who did not respond to the MEP’s online slur, has been sharing his political cartoon drawings since August 2017.
