Shia LaBeouf Is Retiring From Public Life

Shia LaBeouf Is Retiring From Public Life

Shia LaBeouf has announced on his official Twitter account on Friday that he is retiring from public life in its entirety.

Just last month, Shia apologized publicly for plagiarizing his directorial debut “HowardCantour.com”. The comic came from an artist by the name of Daniel Clowes, but apparently Shia was keen on taking credit for the works. Later, he apologized on Twitter and was said to have “borrowed” the apologies, as well. Is there anything original about this guy?!?

Just recently, Shia hired a skywriter to fly a banner over Los Angeles that said, “I am sorry Daniel Clowes”. This was despite the fact that Daniel lives in the San Francisco area and not L.A. On Wednesday, Shia posted a cease and desist letter from Daniel’s attorneys with the message “Your client is seriously out of control.”

Shia took to his Twitter account on Friday to say, “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. #stopcreating. #Whatever.”

What do you think of all of this mess? Was Shia really trying to steal from that guy or was he just being careless and not thinking with property that didn’t belong to him? Either way, he is apparently done with the spotlight, so he won’t have the opportunity to plagiarize anyone else. Thoughts?

    Is there ANYTHING good about this guy? hes pretty much despised for most of his work especially Indy.

    Now hes ripping of someones work and posting it as his own simply cos he think think shes found something that no one knows about and would get away with it.
    The problem was Clowes is well known in the comic world so this idea flopped – the internet means there are thousands of people who can spot check such things.

    His answer to this trying to play it cool without really saying he ripped someone off.
    – “In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life….”

    What artistic integrity? His answer to doing this is not to stand up accept his faults, deal with the reality of having a twitter account where you supposedly want to post your life’s details and promote YOU.

    He just made himself look a fool and a thief and his answer is to hide.

    This from Indies son?

    Well done Mutt ..
    The best thing about this is you going away – fingers crossed you are not lying about this too.

    So long, Shia LeDouche. You will not be missed. He is a plagiarist, a narcissist, and a freaking whack job. But no worries. I am sure another young burn out will show up just in time to fill his shoes… and the massive void left by his ego.
