Have you been following the controversy and drama surrounding Shia LaBeouf? Now that he’s wrapped the ‘Transformers’ franchise, he’s been focusing on making more indie movies, like ‘Nymphomaniac’ and ‘Charlie Countryman.’ One project he made was a short film called ‘HowardCantour.com.’ Shia’s been accused of plagiarizing from David Clowes’ novella, ‘Justin M. Damiano’ for the movie. Shia apologized. Then it was found that Shia’s APOLOGIES were plagiarized from other people’s apologies on the internet. Early this morning Shia sent out the following tweets:
In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life.
My love goes out to those who have supported me.
Something tells me we haven’t really seen the last of Shia LaBeouf. I think he’s just fed up (and as an actor, he’s used to having his lines written for him). He has to promote his film ‘Fury’ with Brad Pitt, after all ;).
