The actor, Jim Carrey has become the victim of a rumor concerning his supposed death. This is in turn linked to a retort made by Shia LaBeouf after Carrey ridiculed him at the Golden Globes.
The whole drama began when Jim Carrey made some offhand remarks about Shia LaBeouf at the Golden Globes. Carrey spoke of how whereas death was easy, being a comedian was a tough job.
He then went ahead and made a wisecrack about Shia LeBeouf having said that and even added that he had the twin qualities of wisdom and youth.
This provoked Shia LaBeouf to make a rejoinder on the online social network about how the process of explaining away Carrey will only kill him.
The reality of Carrey’s death was questioned and he was declared immortal. These strange comments sparked propaganda regarding Carrey’s demise.
Of course, Carrey is in fact alive and well and his obituary in cyberspace is not for real.
The original jab by Carrey was made due to LaBeouf’s habit of copycat behavior. Shia LaBeouf had a knack of undue plagiarism which often landed him in trouble.
Yet Shia LaBeouf went too far in exacting revenge for Carrey’s flippant words. He even called Carrey a father of love children. And by targeting Carrey as the perpetrator of exhibitionism, he went way off the handle.
Later on, Shia apologized and took back the harsh words he had blurted out in anger. He even took the post off the Twitter page to show that he had buried the hatchet.
