We were hoping this plagiarism-apology-plagiarism-apology-plagiarism issue between Shia LaBeouf and, essentially, Shia LaBeouf would be over by now, but apparently he hasn't learned his lesson yet.
In the latest installment of LaBeouf fallout, after stealing Clowes work and passing it off as his own, is yet -- more theft.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, LaBeouf received a cease-and-desist letter from Clowes' lawyers telling him to knock-off the bad behavior, but LaBeouf just can't seem to keep out of trouble.LaBeouf took to Twitter to share the letter from the lawyers as well as retweeted the tweet (as well as re-posting the original tweet, how nice) that incited the letter -- how his next piece of "original" work would be called "Daniel Boring," which, yes, is very similar to another piece of Clowes' work, "David Boring."
Let's hope LaBeouf apologizes one more time, and then we never hear from him about this again.
