Shia LeBeouf Is a Thief

Shia LaBeouf Attends The 63rd Berlin International Film Festival
Shia LeBeouf didn’t steal every single original idea in his short film, ‘’, from the graphic novel, ‘Justin M. Damiano’, by author Daniel Clowes, he was merely inspired by Clowes work:

Although, yeah, he did creatively lift entire passages of dialogue and numerous, substantive story sequences without any accreditation whatsoever. However, that is entirely explained by Shia’s artistic thirst and exuberance:

By proper accreditation he means any note or notice whatsoever that he was stealing Clowes work. Same thing often happens with bank robbers who forget to properly accredit the lending institutions they’re homaging. All that exuberance can make you a little forgetful.

While Clowes work may have been ripped off and shat back out by a peen-head with an 0-27 record in bar fights he starts, he still got that invaluable shoutout.

Yes, it’s crazy that people assumed it was your work just because you put your name on it and said it was your work. The next time people believe a single word that comes out of your scheming pie hole, then it will be on them.

The victimized author summed it up pretty well:

“I’ve never even seen one of his films that I can recall – and I was shocked, to say the least, when I saw that he took the script and even many of the visuals from a very personal story I did six or seven years ago and passed it off as his own work. I actually can’t imagine what was going through his mind.” — Daniel Clowes to Buzzfeed

I’ve got an idea about that. I’m Shia Labeouf, I’m crazy special, fuck you world for not understanding.

    What a dickhead. If there was any justice left in the world he should be blacklisted.

    holy shit- someone in the comments section of NY Daily News stated:

    “Even worse! He copied and pasted the apology from an Yahoo Answer about plagiarism!!

    From Yahoo Answers: “Merely copying isn’t particularly creative work, though it’s useful as training and practice. Being inspired by someone else’s idea to produce something new and different IS creative work, and it may even revolutionalize the “stolen” concept.”

    LaBeouf: “Copying isn’t particularly creative work. Being inspired by someone else’s idea to produce something new and different IS creative work.”

    Would that all douchebags would follow in his footsteps. Maybe then we could actually get rid of a few of them.
