The Canadian-American actor and comedian Jim Carrey dramatically left Twitter on Tuesday evening. He shared a new animation to mark his exit from the platform and his 18.9m followers.

Jim Carrey is famous for using his Twitter platform to mock current world events and other celebrities. He is a comedian, after all.

The video has four million views, it has certainly caused a viral storm. Many are taking it comedically, seeing the funny side of Carrey’s tweet while some are highlighting the bigger issues at hand.

Jim Carrey is a two-time Golden Globe winner, with his most famous appearances being in The Truman Show (1998) and Dumb and Dumber (1994). His impressive facial expressions and body contortions make him a compelling and unique watch.
