Shia got a hard time recently, He released a short film that turned out to be plagiarized from the work of Daniel Clowes. LaBeouf apologized, but then it turned out that apology was also plagiarized and that lead to a sky written apology. Then there were a bunch of arguments about the creative process as a whole. This has all led to LaBeouf announcing his retirement on Twitter, saying,
In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life.
My love goes out to those who have supported me.
