Actors slams President at Britannia Awards in Los Angeles

Jim Carrey has decided to be original by once again attacking President Donald Trump, this time during an acceptance speech at the Britannia Awards in Los Angeles where he accused him of "kidnapping children." 

After Carrey expressed thanks for the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award - he then began making references to trump.

"I’m glad it didn’t come in the mail," Carrey joked about his award, referring to the mail bombs sent to Hillary Clinton, George Soros and others.

"Yes, I no longer have packages delivered to my home in great America fashioned in the last couple of years. I don’t ever remember it being this great, actually."

"We need to be clear: Shamelessness is not, and will never be a superpower. It is the mark of a villain. Kidnapping children is not what great nations do,” he said, referring to the zero-tolerance policy of separating migrants from their children.

“One half of America at this moment believes there is a sinister deep state diabolically plotting, to ... what? Give them health care?"

"We in America are misinformed," Carrey said.

"Reality shows have warped our reality of what a hero is, or what truth is. So tonight I'd like to dedicate this award to those who remind us of our virtues, who remind us of the truth."

According to Fox: He then thanked Chaplin, Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, Trump dossier author Christopher Steele, Colin Kaepernick, and actor Robert DeNiro.

He said Chaplin took on the right wing in his day, "which we are fighting today."

Fellow honoree Cate Blanchett also addressed the current divisive climate.

“The black, the white, the blue, the red, it’s just like, Oh my God, when are you just going to get on with the fact that we’re all different, embrace that difference and just move forward?,” she said while accepting a trophy named after director Stanley Kubrick.

“We’ve got to acknowledge that we’re all f----- up, and we all need forgiveness…Turn around and give the person beside you a hug.”

Members at the event then proceeded to embrace each other.

Carrey, 56, has been an abrupt critic of Trump in current months.

He has recently leveled artistic attacks on the president, drawing politically charged cartoons mocking Trump and some members of his administration and posting them on social media.

His criticism of Trump apparently caught the attention of Cesar Sayoc, the man suspected of mailing bombs to prominent Democratic figures earlier this week.

Sayoc allegedly used various Twitter accounts to threaten actors and politicians, including Carrey, filmmaker Ron Howard, financier George Soros and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
