A day after paying heartfelt tribute to deceased Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, Jim Carrey turned his artistic talents toward more somber matters on Friday.
Much more somber matters.
Actor/artist Carrey tackled the deadly airstrike in Yemen last week that reportedly killed 40 children on a school bus, calling the incident “Our crime.”
“Forty innocent children killed on a bus in Yemen,” Carrey wrote in accompaniment of the art. “Our ally. Our missile. Our crime.”
The image itself was unquestionably grim, depicting a bus full of terrified children, helpless as a missile marked with the American flag and “USA” hurtles toward them.
According to USA Today, health officials in Yemen said 51 people, including 40 children, were killed in the strike last Thursday.
The outlet reported that the strike was launched in the northern Yemen province of Saada by a coalition led by the Saudis against the Houthi group of rebels. According to the report, the U.S., U.K. and France “provide logistical and intelligence support” to the campaign.
Late Friday afternoon, CNN reported that the bomb that killed the children was supplied by the United States.
