Shia LaBeouf Apologizes Through Skywriting

Shia LaBeouf’s plagiarism apology tour took to the sky, as the actor hired a skywriting company to write “I am sorry Daniel Clowes.”

Copying without credit

Shia LaBeoufOn New Year’s Day, the actor hired a single-engine airplane to write through the blue skies of Los Angeles. He then posted the photo of the airborne apology on social media site Twitter.

LaBeouf came under fire after it was found that the premise for his short film was copied from comic artist Daniel Clowes, without crediting the author.

His short film, titled “HowardCantour.com,” included many similarities to Clowes’ 2007 comic, “Justin M. Damiano.”

Plagiarized apology statements

After coming under scrutiny for plagiarizing some of his short film, he also allegedly plagiarized his apology for such actions.

The creativity shown by LaBeouf in his Twitter postings of apology raises the question of why he needed to borrow ideas.

Those tweets included the words “naivete,” “regret,” “embarrassed,” “terribly wrong,” “hurtful and thoughtless,” and “deeply sorry.”
