Actor-turned-activist-painter Jim Carrey tackled the NFL’s clampdown on protests during the national anthem in a work he posted Tuesday.

In a blitz of the league’s owners after they mandated that players either stand at attention for the anthem or stay in the locker room, Carrey pictured President Donald Trump raging against a backdrop of “corporations,” which, Carrey wrote, “shld rethink sponsoring moral cowardice before we start asking: whose side is Nationwide really on?”
