Shia LaBeouf Apologizes to Daniel Clowes With Skywriting Message
The 27-year-old actor directed short film Howard Cantour.com about a disillusioned film critic, which premiered at Cannes earlier this year. But after it debuted online in December 2013, it was revealed the film included uncredited dialogue from Clowes’ story Justin M Damiano, which is about the same subject matter.
LaBeouf apologized to Clowes on Twitter using a plagiarized apology, and proceeded to spend every subsequent day tweeting out different apologies, all of them lifted from other famous apologies.
Shia hired a skywriter to pen “I am sorry Daniel Clowes” in clouds and tweeted a picture of it.

Hopefully, this will set things right once and for all.
