The Shia Labeouf train of bizarre continues rolling down the track after Jim Carrey took a little jab at him during the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. “‘Dying is easy … comedy is hard.’ I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that,” Carrey joked, referring to Labeouf’s recent plagiarism woes.
The actor quickly fired back on Twitter, linking to a video of Carrey’s daughter’s band and writing, “At least I don’t get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child’s.” He apologized for the tweets after the fact, but it was too late.
Carrey’s ex, Jenny McCarthy, had already had enough. She addressed Labeouf during Tuesday’s (Jan. 14) episode of “The View.” “You can attack myself, but don’t bring my children into it. And I’m sure it’s the same for Jim,” she says. “Jim and I have become friends now since our breakup. We dated for five years and I got to know his daughter, Jane, who is a lovely, lovely girl. It’s completely uncalled for and wrong. Jim is a great father. He loves Jane more than anything in the world. Shia did apologize and Jim did take it, but the whole thing is, do not bring our children into it.”
Labeouf deleted all mentions of Carrey on his Twitter account except one puzzling message, reading, “If you explain @JimCarrey you’ve killed him, Nobody knows if it’s for real or not. That way he’s immortal.”
Maybe he’ll hire a skywriter to apologize in his own special way. That’ll give Lena Dunham more ammo.
