    The renewed comedian has become known over recent years for his Youtube philosophy rants and comical jibes at fellow celebrities. Now he has turned his acerbic humour to the Suicide Squad’s leading female actress.

    Hollywood legend Jim Carrey has been attacked on social media for making actress Margot Robbie “feel awkward” during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show.

    Carrey, who’s filmography includes classics like, The Mask, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Dumb and Dumber and The Truman Show, is being criticised over what many perceived as his suggestion that Miss Robbie is only successful in the film world due to her good looks.

    “You’re really something, Margot Robbie,” Mr Carrey quipped. “It’s incredible you got as far as you have with your obvious physical disadvantages. That’s pure talent there," he added sarcastically. 

    Miss Robbie appeared to respond by awkwardly chuckling.

    Here's what the Twittersphere had to say:
