Jim Carrey, Ted Cruz are trading barbs on Twitter before Election Day
- Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and comedian Jim Carrey traded barbs at each other on Twitter, one night before Election Day on Tuesday.
- Carrey, who supports Cruz's Democratic opponent, Rep. Beto O'Rourke, likened Cruz to a vampire in an art piece.
- "Hollywood liberals all in for Beto," Cruz replied to Carrey in a tweet. "But (self-described socialist) Jim Carrey made a mistake here: Vampires are dead, and everyone knows the dead vote Democrat...."
Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and comedian-actor Jim Carrey traded barbs on Twitter, one night before Election Day on Tuesday.
Carrey, who supports Cruz's Democratic opponent, Rep. Beto O'Rourke, took a jab at the Republican incumbent by likening him to a quintessential undead creature.
"Go Beto! Go Democrats! Vote like there's no tomorrow," Carrey said in a tweet on Sunday. "Let's make this Tuesday like the end of every great vampire movie. Pull back the curtains and let the sunshine turn all those bloodsuckers to dust."
Carrey also included artwork depicting O'Rourke pulling back a curtain to let sunlight into a room, while Cruz begins to burn from the sun's rays:
Cruz bit back with a caricature of Hollywood celebrities and echoed a conservative dog-whistle that baselessly suggests Democratic candidates receive fraudulent votes from deceased constituents.
"Hollywood liberals all in for Beto," Cruz replied in a tweet. "But (self-described socialist) Jim Carrey made a mistake here: Vampires are dead, and everyone knows the dead vote Democrat...."
Carrey, who has created political art depicting Trump in an unflattering light, fired back with another tweet — this time, making light of Cruz's complicated relationship with President Donald Trump. The two Republicans appeared to cast aside their differences in recent weeks, a stark departure from their rivalry during the 2019 presidential Election.
"Wow...sorry I rattled your chain, @TedCruz," Carrey said in a tweet on Monday. "I thought you would have more important things to do two days before an election — like sucking up to the guy who called your wife ugly and accused your dad of murder. But I get it! It's hard to say no when Trump grabs ya by the p---y!"
Hollywood stars and music artists have been increasingly vocal about their political views since Trump's election, and have urged people to vote in the November 6 midterm elections. Carrey has not been shy about his embrace of Democratic socialism and has become a popular target of conservative strategists.
The race for Texas' Senate seat hit fever pitch after early voting began in late October.
