Jim Carrey, Shia LaBeouf

It looks like Shia LaBeouf heard Jim Carrey's dig at Sunday night's Golden Globes loud and clear.

While onstage presenting, the comedian quoted, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard…I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that."

The 27-year-old actor then took to Twitter (as per usual) to speak his mind about the funny awards show moment.

"If you explain @JimCarrey you've killed him, Nobody knows if it's for real or not. That way he's immortal," Shia wrote.

He then posted a YouTube video of Jim's daughter's band, The Jane Carrey Band, and called the Dumb and Dumber actor out for his parenting skills.

"At least I don't get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child's," he added.

And that's when things took an unexpected expected turn.

Shia immediately changed his tune over Twitter and wrote an apology to the Hollywood veteran.

"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 former child star added, "I am not famous anymore." Oh, glad we cleared that up. (Side note: Shia currently follows one person on Twitter—Jane Carrey!)

Despite his wishes to slip into anonymity, Shia's Twitter has been under fire in the recent weeks.

On Dec. 16, 2013, it was revealed that Shia 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," he wrote as part of his endless apologetic tweets.

Something tells us this isn't the last we'll hear from Shia and his Twitter.
