Over the past few years, actor Jim Carrey has become involved in some pretty controversial things. Yes, he’s earned somewhat of a reputation for putting his foot in it during interviews. And while on the promotional tour for the 2020 movie Sonic the Hedgehog, Carrey made a comment to a female interviewer which soon got the internet tearing its hair out.

Now, Carrey has seemed to find himself at the centre of controversy in recent times. For example, he’s said before that he is effectively against the practice of vaccinating young children. In 2015 he wrote on Twitter, “I am not anti-vaccine. I am anti-thimerosal, anti-mercury. They have taken some of the mercury laden thimerosal out of vaccines. NOT ALL!” Even so, people pointed out that the level of mercury involved was extremely low.
