Shia LaBeouf Feuds With Jim Carrey, Jenny McCarthy
Retirement isn't all golf games and sleeping in for Shia LaBeouf. He's now feuding with two new celebs: Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy.
After announcing he would be "retiring from all public life," which we took to mean he was retiring from Twitter (as it's caused him so much trouble lately), he was back on the social media platform Monday sparring with Carrey -- and McCarthy jumped into the mix.

It all stems from Carrey taking a swipe at LaBeouf, who has been involved in an ongoing plagiarism scandal, during Sunday's Golden Globes. When the "Dumb and Dumber To" star was presenting the award for Best Picture, Musical or Comedy, he said, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard. I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that. So young, so wise."
Retiree LaBeouf didn't take kindly to that remark and responded on Twitter, leading with this post:
The next one was more cutting -- and he subsequently deleted it:
"At least I don't get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child's." The reference to Carrey's parenting skills (he has a daughter, Jane, and was a father figure to ex-girlfriend McCarthy's autistic son, Evan) was followed by an apology, which was also deleted:
"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."
And then his final public statement on the matter was:
The war of words was a Hot Topic on "The View" Tuesday and McCarthy didn't shy away from it.
"You can attack myself, but don't bring my children into it. And I'm sure it's the same for Jim," she said.
"Jim and I have become friends now since our breakup," continued McCarthy, who is now dating Donnie Wahlberg. "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."
That's the final word for now. And LaBeouf can get back to doing whatever it is a 27-year-old retiree -- who is not really retired -- does.
