Remember when Shia LaBeouf said he was retiring from the public eye?

That was SO three days ago.

Following a pretty hilarious diss by Jim Carrey at the 2014 Golden Globes, LaBeouf tried to start a Twitter war with the comedian last night… only to eventually backtrack and come across like a bigger douchebag than before.

It all started when Carrey mocked LaBeouf’s plagiarism scandal on stage last night, saying that “dying is easy, comedy is hard” and then adding

“I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that. So young, so wise.”


The 27-year-old actor then took to the Internet and wrote: “If you explain @JimCarrey you’ve killed him, Nobody knows if it’s for real or not. That way he’s immortal.”

Ummm… okay. We guess.

LaBeouf then posted a YouTube video of Jim’s daughter’s band, The Jane Carrey Band, and called the elder Carrey out for being a bad father.

“At least I don’t get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child’s,” Shia wrote, using improper grammar.

HOWEVER, LaBeouf then did a 180, Tweeting later on that “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.”

The Transformers star concluded: “I am not famous anymore.”

God, how we wish that were true.
