I Will Not Be Attending Shia LeBeouf’s Pity Party

Nobody has time for this…

Shia LaBeouf needs to have a swift seat.

Yesterday, the Transformers actor sent out this Tweet:

This is after people attacked him for his blatant plagiarism of a comic for his short film HowardCantour.com. Apparently he thought people should let it go, especially after he skywrote an apology to the comic’s creator Daniel Clowes. Well people (including Lena Dunham) didn’t, and now he is quitting public life as a response.

How very Princess Diana of him.

The difference, though, is that Diana quit public life because she was tired of being hounded by the paparazzi who made her life a living hell (and ultimately led to her death). Shia LeBeouf is quitting life because people are holding him accountable for literally stealing someone’s work and passing it off as his own. Forgive me, since I am still a relatively fresh graduate, but that would get him kicked out of even the most hackneyed community college. He cannot seriously expect people to feel sorry for him, right? He isn’t that pretentious, is he?

Then again, he did skywrite an apology.

Sorry, but you will get no sympathy from me. We are not doing this. You STOLE someone’s work, shamelessly. Your apology was a mess. You got Twitter-dragged by Lena Dunham. You have failed. Accept it and move on. Trying to garner sympathy for a dumb decision you made with the most passive aggressive ploy possible is just sad.
