Jim Carrey has been Banned from Entering Russia


Legendary Jim Carrey has been banned from entering Russia.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made an announcement on Monday that the country would provide $500 million for additional military assistance for Ukraine, as well as introducing sanctions against 23 people from the security and Russian justice sectors.

In response to this announcement, the country’s Foreign Ministry shared a statement declaring 100 Canadians that would be banned/added to a ‘stop list’.

The Canadian-American icon was one of them, as well as those in ‘media and financial structures that are directly involved in the formation of an aggressive anti-Russian course’.

Also on the ‘stop list’ is author Margaret Atwood, historian Amy Knight, journalist David Akin and former federal Conservative cabinet minister Peter MacKay, Caroline Xavier, the head of Canada’s Communications Security Authority and Vikings actor Katheryn Winnick.

Margaret Atwood responded to this news by tweeting:

“Dang! @JimCarrey and I had planned a little naughty weekend getaway in Moscow. Guess it will have to be Kyiv instead.”

to which he replied:

“Yes @MargaretAtwood, I’m afraid the worst has happened. We’re banned from Russia…but the problems of 100 Canadians don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world! We’ll always have Paris. Here’s looking at you kid.”
