Jim Carrey Takes on School Shootings in Latest Artwork

Actor offers a ”New Pledge for a Generation Betrayed“ following deadly school shooting in Texas

Jim Carrey put his artistic talents to use to tackle gun manufacturers and the rash of school shootings with his latest work on Monday, offering a somber view on the topic.

The work, posted to Carrey’s Twitter account on Monday — days after the nation’s latest school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas — offered his thoughts on the topic, both in picture and text.

“New Pledge for a Generation Betrayed,” Carrey wrote of the art, which depicted a classroom with rows of empty desks and windows riddled with bullet holes.

The image also bore the text, “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America/And to the gun makers for whom it stands/One nation, under greed, indefensible/With butchery and injustice for the most innocent of all.”

On Friday, a gunman opened fire at Santa Fey High School in Texas, ultimately leaving 10 people dead, CNN reported.

The suspect has been identified as Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, who allegedly used a shotgun and a .38 caliber revolver to carry out the shooting.
