While presenting the award for Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical, Carrey mused to the audience, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard... I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that."
Shia responded on Twitter, "If you explain @JimCarrey you've killed him, Nobody knows if it's for real or not. That way he's immortal." He then posted a video of Jim's daughter's band and wrote, "At least I don't get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child's [sic]."
A few hours later, Shia deleted the post and wrote, "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."
Both the offending post and the apology were deleted and were replaced by a bizarre tweet: "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE."
