    The 27-year-old actor-turned-gossip magazine regular scrambled to apologize after being accused of ripping off a graphic novel writer for his short film, "HowardCantour.com."

    Once news of the scandal broke, LaBeouf tweeted out a series of apologies, professing his respect and love for Clowes' work:

    The "Nymphomaniac" star has a bit of a history of cribbing from other sources. His email rant to the director of the Broadway production of "Orphans" after exiting that show in February were taken verbatim from an 2009 Esquire article.
    "I f---- up," LaBeouf summarized Monday to his 67,355 Twitter followers.

    The fallout from Shia LaBeouf’s plagiarism of Justin M. Damiano, a comic strip by renowned creator Daniel Clowes, continues today after LaBeouf took to Twitter to apologize for the whole affair. The only problem? The first tweet in his mea culpa also appears to have been plagiarized.

    As some on Twitter have pointed out, it seems even the first part of LaBeouf's apology may have been plagiarized from a Yahoo! Answers user named Lili.

    He's a douche but I did like the Moonshining movie he was in. Although the movie could have done without him.

    Oh man, a word I used to mispronounce was "disciple." I pronounced it exactly how it's spelled.

    I'm naturally hooked on fonics.

    This guy seems to be a classic lightweight. Hard to pull off in the internet age.

    A phrase I personally invented and use all the time applies here. You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

    This is the same asshole who claimed on Letterman during promotion for the Wall Street movie sequel that as "research" for the movie he opened a brokerage account with $20,000 and traded stocks, bonds, etc in it for a few months and turned it into something like $400,000. I called bullshit then and this story guarantees that story was really BULLSHIT :shit::shit::shit:.

    I really don't get his success. He's not a great actor, he comes off as a complete idiot and he's always fucking up, yet Spielberg, Lucas* and Bay seem to have a huge hard on to make him this huge star. It seems to be Spielberg most of all...who pushed him on Bay for Transformers and that had him written into The Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls.

    It makes no sense.

    *I bet that fat lump Lucas couldn't give a shit either way.

    I'd like to know the crossover of people who've both read a Dan Clowes comic and give a rat's ass about this dipshit's projects and initiatives.
