Maybe he should be more concerned about being charged in the death of his former girlfriend.

Jim Carrey has come to Kathy Griffin’s defense, speaking out against the backlash generated by her widely derided photoshoot holding a facsimile of president Donald Trump’s severed head.
Griffin posted a video on Twitter apologizing for the photo soon after, but on Wednesday, she was fired from her job as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve special. “I made a mistake and I was wrong,” said the 56-year-old comedian.
At the premiere of I’m Dying Up Here, a new Showtime comedy he executive produced, Carrey told Griffin to “hold up a severed leg as well”. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, he elaborated, explaining: “It is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times, because that line is not real.”
He continued: “We’re the last line of defense. And really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing.”
Trump directly addressed Griffin’s photo, shot by Tyler Shields, in a tweet on Wednesday that read: “Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”
In his interview, Carrey professed to having recently dreamed about playing golf with the president. “I had a dream the other night I was playing golf with Donald Trump,” he said. “I was standing beside him with a club in my hand, and I was considering my options when I suddenly woke up. It was one of those dreams where you just want to get back to sleep so you can finish it, you know?”
