Jim Carrey’s Ex, Jenny McCarthy, Addresses Shia LaBeouf InsultsBy: Jasmine Allen - January 14, 2014
The Internet death rumors that were made about Jim Carrey on Tuesday were suspected to stem from Shia LaBeouf’s comment on Twitter Monday.
The feud between the two all started at the Golden Globe Awards.
Carrey made a playful reference to LaBeouf’s plagiarism scandal of the 2012 film “HowardCantour.com,” which was clearly based off of the comic Justin M. Damiano by Daniel Clowes.
“Dying is easy. Comedy is hard … I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that,” Carrey said jokingly.
After Carrey had made his remark, the ex-Disney star had a rebuttal of his own in which he posted to Twitter:
What made matters worst is that LeBeouf insulted Carrey’s parenting skills by throwing his daughter Jane into the equation.
“At least I don’t get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child’s,” the 27-year-old said in a tweet.
LaBeouf, however, later tweeted again apologizing to Jane’s parents for his insensitive remarks. Both tweets have since then been removed.
Now that that the insults are out in the open, another celebrity has something to say about the beef. In Tuesday’s segment of The View, Carrey’s former girlfriend Jenny McCarthy was furious about the comment made by LaBeouf: (image)
“You can attack myself, but don’t bring my children into it. And I’m sure it’s the same for Jim…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.”
Oddly enough, just two weeks ago LaBeouf made a public apology to Clowes prior to announcing his retirement from the public-eye on Friday 10.
On Monday he even tweeted what seem to be a bitter statement about his celebrity status.
Carrey has yet to respond.
