Shia LaBeouf Continues On The Fast Track To Meltdownsville

During Sunday night’s Golden Globes ceremony Jim Carrey cracked a joke saying: ‘Dying is easy, comedy is hard, I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that,’ referencing the fact that Shia was recently caught red-handed plagiarising Daniel Clowes’ comedic short stories.

Everyone laughed loudly, except from Shia, who, upon seeing the Google news alerts he has in his name plop into his inbox, leapt on twitter and started ranting – despite seemingly announcing his retirement from public life last week (which was in fact a tweet he stole from Michael Jordan).

He wrote:  ‘If you explain @JimCarrey you’ve killed him, Nobody knows if it’s for real or not. That way he’s immortal,’ before posting a link to a video of Jim’s daughter Jane’s band and writing, ‘At least I don’t get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child’s (sic).’

You’ll have had to have done a Breaking Bad amount of meth to understand what the plagiarist was actually saying, but basically he criticised Jim’s parenting skills before deleting everything and apologising.

However, a quick google shows that Shia was stealing both the ‘indecency on LA highways’, the love child thing and the apology from Rupert Murdoch when he was attacking and then saying sorry to Hugh Grant last year.

Shia’s clearly trying to turn the plagiarism into performance art a la Joaquin Phoenix in his annoying weird phase the other year. I expect the plan in his head is to say at a later date, “aha! I’m not really a plagiarist, I was making a witty commentary on the internet’.

Or something.

But it’s not working. The thing about jokes is they have to be actually funny and if wit was sh-t, Shia would be constipated.

My feeling is that Shia’s doing a ridiculous amount of a paranoia-inducing drug like cocaine and then drinking alcohol as well – which is why he’s constantly tweeting all this nonsense and then saying he’s sorry the next day, before doing it all again.

It has all the tell-take fingerprints of the twitter meltdowns that Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes used to have back in the day.

I’m fairly certain that this is going to end one of two ways: Rehab or a gurney heading to the ER.

It sounds like Shia’s increasingly in need of help, and, all too often the people that need help the most don’t realise it until after the moment has passed.

    At least if he plagiarises there’s a chance his tweets will be grammatically correct.
