Italian politician Alessandra Mussolini has branded actor Jim Carrey as a b***** after he tweeted a drawing of the hanging of her grandfather, Benito Mussolini, and Claretta Petacci.
The actor expressed his views on fascism by tweeting an original sketch, with the text: "If you're wondering what fascism leads to, just ask Benito Mussolini and his mistress Claretta."

Her reply then proceeded to spark a debate between herself and American political communication specialist, Evan O'Connell.
I think you're confusing Jim Carrey with your murderous grandfather
- he tweeted.
Alessandra, who was elected to European Parliament in 2014, went on to share several images from US history that she thought Carrey could do cartoons of - such as the story of activist Rosa Parks.
Carrey has yet to respond to Alessandra's tweets.
The Candian has been filling his timeline with political drawings since 2017.
