Jim Carrey has a colorful response to the death of a 7-year-old girl who died in border patrol custody last week… and that color is red.
“Now an innocent seven-year-old girl has died of medical neglect because of Trump’s sadism at the border. If there’s a Hell…” Carrey wrote as a caption to his latest artwork: a tight portrait of President Trump, blood red and sweating.
Carrey’s creation references a young girl who was detained after illegally crossing into New Mexico with her father, Nery Caal, and a large group of migrants seeking asylum on Dec. 6. according the Department of Homeland Security. Eight hours after being in U.S. custody, she began to have seizures and her body temperature shot up to 105.7-degree fever.
She was transported to a hospital in El Paso, Texas, where she went into cardiac arrest and later died.
“The girl said when she was grown up she was going to work and send dough back to her mom and grandma,” the girl’s mother said, according to Reuters. She added that her husband and one of their three daughters ventured to the U.S. to find their way out of their country’s “extreme poverty.”
