'You b*****d!' Benito Mussolini's politician granddaughter attacks Jim Carrey after he posts a painting of the murderous Italian fascist leader and his mistress hanging following their deaths in 1945

Benito Mussolini’s granddaughter has slammed Jim Carrey after he tweeted a drawing of the dead bodies of Italy's wartime fascist leader and his mistress.
Italian politician Alessandra Mussolini hit back at the star on Twitter on Saturday, branding him a ‘b*****d’ for drawing a sketch of her grandfather and his lover hanging upside down from a rafter.
Ms Mussolini, 56, is a member of the European Parliament for the center-right Forza Italia political party and is the niece of Sophia Loren as well as a former actress and model. 
Carrey’s art is based on the real life deaths of Mussolini and his mistress Petacci who were captured by communist partisan fighters and executed by firing squad on April 28, 1945.

The couple - along with other key figures in the Italian fascist leadership - were travelling through Italy and planning to head to the border of Switzerland, a neutral country in the Second World War. 
Here it is thought they would have flown to their ally Francoist Spain had they not been intercepted.
Following their deaths, the bodies of Mussolini, Petacci, and other fascists were hung upside down in front of a gas station in Milan’s Piazzale Loreto as a large crowd vented their anger.
The Canadian-American actor, whose drawings have been harshly critical of Trump, expressed his views on fascism by sharing the drawing with the caption: ‘If you’re wondering what fascism leads to, just ask Benito Mussolini and his mistress Claretta.’
His tweet generated more than 57,000 likes and 15,000 retweets but was slammed by Ms Mussolini who replied to Carrey’s sketch, writing: ‘You are a b*****d.’
