We all had to read A Tale Of Two Cities in high school, which meant the SparkNotes for A Tale Of Two Cities was sold out at every Borders (RIP) in a 25-mile radius. One thing I remember is that if Madame Defarge knitted your name, you and your neck were fuuuuuucked and heading to the guillotine. It seems like Jim Carrey is the new Madame Defarge with his portraits. He came for Donald Trump and Sarah Huckabee Sanders the other day, and now he’s shifted to the man responsible for why we spend 80% of the workday looking at a newsfeed full of cat and cooking videos.
Page Six says the Magic Marker activist tossed up a Mark Zuckerberg portrait on Twitter yesterday. Sadly, it isn’t at quite the caliber of his previous work, and it’s a good thing he captioned it with a quote by Zuck. Otherwise, I was just going to assume he was a big Archie fan.

For good measure, Jim added, “Who are you sharing your life with? #regulatefacebook.” The “dumb fucks” quote stemmed from an IM Mark sent as a 19-year-old in the ye olde days of Facebook. Jim also called for Facebook to be regulated.
Some have claimed Facebook should be regulated since social media and big tech has similar addictive qualities as tobacco and booze. Others think it should be regulated after reports have emerged that data firm Cambridge Analytica was able to take private data from Facebook and use it to the advantage of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. One thing the whole mess is doing is causing Facebook’s stock to fall flat on its face. For what it’s worth, the Zuck came out with a looooooong explanation of how he’s sowwy and taking this seriously, and you can check that out here.
Methinks it might be too late. Jim is on a marker and Sharpie warpath, and nobody is safe! I feel like he’s going to partner up with Uma Thurman next, which means we’re going to see a portrait that we can’t quite determine if it’s a water buffalo or if it is Harvey Weinstein. Either way, Uma will definitely wear it on her back during awards season next year, and she’ll probably walk away with Best Stunt Performance Actress, and we’ll all golf clap. Well, all of us except for Nicole Kidman, who thought doing two seasons of TV was sure as shit going to get her a Best Stunt Performance Actress award at this faux awards show I have playing in my head!
