Jenny McCarthy defended her ex-boyfriend Jim Carrey and slammed Shia LaBeouf on Tuesday’s “The View.”

At Sunday’s Golden Globes, Carrey made a dig at LaBeouf’s plagiarism scandal, leading the younger actor to lash out and attack Carrey’s parenting.

LaBeouf tweeted, “At least I don’t get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child’s,” also posting a YouTube video of Carrey’s daughter Jane’s band.”

While the Transformers star later apologized, McCarthy wanted to have her say on Tuesday’s show. She declared, “You can attack myself, but don’t bring my children into it. And I’m sure it’s the same for Jim.”

“Jim and I have become friends now since our breakup,” McCarthy continued. “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.” McCarthy added, “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.”
