Shia LaBeouf Plagiarized Lena Dunham During A Twitter War Stemming From His Plagiarism Problems
In case you missed it, this whole thing started after the internet found out Mr. LaBeouf had included uncredited dialogue in a short film he directed. Long story short, he plagiarized another writers work. Then, two days ago, after apologizing many times via Twitter, Shia had one last attempt at a mea culpa written in the sky. That message, as you can imagine, also happened to find its way to Twitter.

That brings us to this morning when Lena, the writer / director / and lead actress on Girls, felt the need to share her disdain for skywriting and its perpetuators.
I've always felt, utterly and unchangeably, that only sociopaths hire skywriters.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) January 4, 2014
And because he obviously hasn’t learned his lesson, Shia responded by lifting a tweet that Dunham had written herself way back in 2012.
I don't mind creating debate with thoroughly considered artistic expressions but I don't want to offend with a tweet. Sorry world.— Shia LaBeouf (@thecampaignbook) January 4, 2014
He wasn’t done though, not at all.
Im addicted to lean & that shit ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse 4 skywriting— Shia LaBeouf (@thecampaignbook) January 4, 2014
Thankfully, Lena has a memory like an elephant.
Vaguely recognized Shia Labeouf's latest twitter apology and realized it was MINE! Touché, Louis Stevens.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) January 4, 2014
And then she won the battle. #crushedit
Projecting a lot of rage against my 7th grade boyfriend on LaBeouf. Think this is the start of something really productive #2014— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) January 4, 2014
She must’ve dropped a microphone when this ended right? Lena, if you read this, please Instagram or Vine a video of you dropping a microphone. Thanks.
