Jim Carrey shares tweet ‘killing off’ Harvey Weinstein with obituary sketch

Ace Ventura star Jim Carrey 'killed off' disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein with an obituary-style tweet.

The movie mogul was drawn looking like he'd seen better days as he appeared tarnished and roughed-up with a memo below stating "Harvey Weinstein 1952-2020."

Jim Carrey shared the image just a few hours after it was announced that Weinstein would face 23 years in the slammer for the multiple crimes he had committed.

The cartoon hand-drawn image shows the Hollywood film producer appearing scruffy and un-groomed, with reddened eyes as he appears completely shocked.

Fans couldn't wait to pass commentary on the unusual sketch.

One person said: "Nailed it sir."

Another added: "Fair play, you just killed off Harvey."

Jim's sketch lands not long after many celebrities took to their own Twitter accounts to praise the victims for their courageous fight and to commend the judge for giving Harvey the ultimate sentence.

Slamming the movie buff, Reese Witherspoon took to her social media to air her views, she said: "Historical moment today. I am so appreciative of the women and men who spoke up about the abuse and harassment they suffered at the hands of Harvey Weinstein.

"This gives me renewed hope in the US justice system that due process works, survivors will be believed, and justice will be served.

"Thank you to all of the journalists and publications who persisted in telling survivors stories, despite constant pushback and threats, and brought this story to the light."

Kate Beckinsale was also among an array of stars who suffered at the hand of Harvey Weinstein, she uttered a huge sigh of relief when his sentence was revealed yesterday.

The 46-year-old actress had expressed that she had been "punished for years" for her outfit choice at the Serendipity premiere in New York in 2001.

It would seem Weinstein wasn't happy with her selection of outfits after she chose to attend the premier in a full white suit.

He previously revealed that he reprimanded her for looking "like a f***ing lesbian" and not wearing a "tight dress".

The Pearl Harbour actress said: "Hearing that he has gone to prison for 23 years is a huge relief to me on behalf of all the women he sexually assaulted or raped, and I hope he will be a deterrent to that sort of behaviour in this and any other industry.

"Having said that, the crimes that are not crimes, the inhumane bullying and sick covert abuse for which there is STILL no recourse no matter who you tell (and I did tell), these too need to go.

"I hope and pray that we as an industry can start to actually outlaw all abuses of power and expose them and eliminate them, for all genders, forever."
