Jim Carrey's Golden Globes Joke Not Funny to Shia LaBeouf

Paul Drinkwater/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- What happened to Shia LaBeouf retiring "from all public life?” Just days after making that proclamation on Twitter, the 27-year-old actor on Monday publicly attacked Jim Carrey on the social media site.

LaBeouf, who has come under fire in recent weeks for plagiarizing a graphic novella for his new short film HowardCantour.com, took umbrage with a joke Carrey made at his expense at Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony. Carrey quipped onstage, "'Dying is easy. Comedy is hard.' I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that. So young, so wise."

The next morning, LaBeouf tweeted, "If you explain @JimCarrey you've killed him, Nobody knows if it's for real or not. That way he's immortal."

He then made a couple of bizarre accusations. In a reply to an E! Online tweet regarding Carrey's joke, LaBeouf wrote, "@eonline At least I don't get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child's."

It's unclear what prompted LaBeouf to make the "abandon love child" allegation. Carrey's 26-year-old daughter, Jane, is a musician who auditioned for American Idol in 2012. In a moment captured by the show, she called her famous father afterward.

LaBeouf later posted this apology: "Jim Carrey states that he is deeply involved in his daughter's life – I accept that, regret tweet on the matter. Apologies to both parents."

He then wrote, in all caps, "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE." That was his most recent tweet as of late Monday.
