Canadians react to fly on Mike Pence during U.S. debate
Americans aren't the only ones poking fun at the fly that landed on Mike Pence during the vice presidential debate on Wednesday. Canadians, like comedian and actor Jim Carrey, have lots to say as well.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, the Canadian star made his thoughts on Pence loud and clear while, of course, referencing that now-famous fly with a drawing of the vice president alongside the words "Pence doesn't know shit but flies do."
Besides this, Carrey also speculated for his followers what Pence might have been thinking during the debate.
“And if I may rudely continue, I find the Senator’s ability to recognize my bootlicking highly offensive. Clearly her desire to speak tonight is an attempt to seduce me away from my wife that will not succeed as I busted a nut before I came out here.” pic.twitter.com/wUCnEQhq0z— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) October 8, 2020
Many seemed to agree with Carrey and even praised him for a humorous drawing.
It’s not as good as yours...but I could resist 🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/Uz3XWY9bWh— Jannel (@whatevrjannel) October 8, 2020
"Keep 'em coming! I love your wit and you are quite an artist to boot! Jim Carrey... the whole package!" someone else wrote.

However, the tweet didn't sit too well with everyone. Some went on to criticize Carrey for involving himself in politics while also calling him immature.
Jim, this is kinda of rude and disparaging to our sitting Vice President.— Adam McBrayer (@boa2112) October 8, 2020
"Never seen such an immature adult," another person added.
Jim come on please stop! You're one of my favorite comedians of all time, no reason to get THIS political.. all you're doing is splitting up your fan base.— ColinB (@ColinBPlays) October 8, 2020
This, of course, didn't stop other prominent Canadians from joining in on the fly fun, including singer Ria Mae who posted an edited video of the incident with a simple caption of, "Good morning."
Actress and singer Lennon Stella simply told her followers to vote blue.
Prior to the debate, many Canadians were cheering Senator Kamala Harris on and continued to support her after it was over.
You are amazing. I watched from Canada last night, and have no doubt that you will be the best thing for all of North America, let alone the US!— LaurieR (@_el_rifle_) October 8, 2020
"Cheering you on from Canada! You knocked it out of the park!" a Twitter user wrote to Harris.
I am a Canadian living in Canada, and so unable to vote for you and Joe, but I would if I could. And so would most Canadians. Keep going. Win this thing. 👍👍🇨🇦— Susan Gordon (@susang8) October 8, 2020
Earlier this week, a Canadian author even released a comic book about Harris' time growing up in Montreal called Kamala in Canada.
No matter which side you were cheering for during the debate, it's pretty clear that the fly was the winner.
