Shia LaBeouf got some recognition during the 2014 Golden Globes, however, it wasn't the recognition he would hope for.

The actor, who recently announced that he's "retiring from all public life" after being in the middle of plagiarism controversy, was dissed by funnyman Jim Carrey during the awards show tonight. Carrey, who was a presenter tonight, quoted, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard."

And that's when he threw shade at LaBeouf. "I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that. So young, so wise," the Dumb & Dumber star said sarcastically.

The 27-year-old actor took to Twitter on Friday morning, Jan. 10, and wrote, "In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life." He added, "My love goes out to those who have supported me," and followed up with a tweet that simply read, "#stopcreating."

LaBeouf's decision came after it was revealed on Dec. 16, 2013, that the Transformers star had plagiarized one of author Daniel Clowes' graphic novellas for his short film HowardCantour.com.

"Im embarrassed that I failed to credit @danielclowes for his original graphic novella Justin M. Damiano, which served as my inspiration. I was truly moved by his piece of work & I knew that it would make a poignant & relevant short. I apologize to all who assumed I wrote it.

"I deeply regret the manner in which these events have unfolded and want @danielclowes to know that I have a great respect for his work...I f--ked up," LaBeouf wrote as part of his endless apologetic tweets.

If only there was a Golden Globe for Most Interesting Twitter Apology. Oh well.
