The story that began with a simple comic strip:

This story has developed into the fall of a star that used to grace the home page of Comicbookmovie.com on a weekly basis just two years ago. Here is a look at how the story has developed this week:

After reports of various celebrities using Twitter to voice their opinions on Shia LaBeouf's latest act of apology for plagiarizing writer Daniel Clowes work back in 2013, Lena Dunham (of HBO's Girls fame) joined the mass with the following Tweet:


This tweet seemed to upset LaBeouf and inspired another apology from the Transformers star in this latest tweet:


He soon after retweeted Dunham's acknowledgment of his apology:


HOWEVER the saga does not stop there, and since this is in fact a very public fall of a celebrity, there had to be a continuos pattern in LaBeouf's behaviour, as the Daily Mail discovered that the Transformers star had indeed plagiarized in his tweet about his drug habit from rapper Gucci Mane's own revelation back in September.
Reported by Daily Mail: It turns out the rapper-actor apologised for his drinking in a tweet posted on September 22 that read: 'I wanna be the first rapper to admit I’m addicted to lean & that sh*t ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse.'

Considering what Mane had went through, and the courage it had taken him to reveal his addiction and apologize to his fans, family and friends, this has been a completely disrespectful act by LaBeouf who's "copy-paste" addiction is belittling what Mane has been through. It seems LaBeouf is doing more harm than good and should definitely seek some external help with his addictions and mental issues.

I think this has gone beyond Comic Mook Movie's style

No doubt man. This isn't TMZ.
TopCat89 - 1/5/2014, 9:59 AM

MrCBM56 - 1/5/2014, 10:00 AM
No doubt man. This isn't TMZ.

LOL. Exactly.

Dude just keeps making it worse.
DEVLIN712 - 1/5/2014, 10:04 AM
Next thing it'll come out he copied his own name
Jobin - 1/5/2014, 10:07 AM
I THINK HE IS HILARIOUS, the fact that people are making a thing out of this fuels him even more, I would be doing the same thing.
SuperCat - 1/5/2014, 10:07 AM
D@ck.

Someone should start kickstarter campaign as a paycheck to Mel Gibson, he will manhandle this prick.
ManCalledSting - 1/5/2014, 10:14 AM
Jobin: That's kinda how I feel. I think he got caught, and then decided to go full steam to make it look like its all a ruse
DrDoom - 1/5/2014, 10:15 AM
If people keep giving him attention, he'll keep doing it.

No such thing as bad press.
ManCalledSting - 1/5/2014, 10:15 AM
The other two possibilities are that Clowes is in on it, or Shia lost it. I pick the first option.
RawGod - 1/5/2014, 10:17 AM
Hahaa just leave the man alone Hahaa
marcvader1 - 1/5/2014, 10:23 AM
Lol and you twats continue to give him too much credit.
JoeMomma29 - 1/5/2014, 10:28 AM
@ OLDGREG

I am saying the same thing as well. Something is just to fishy on this, it is well to obvious that he was doing this.
Prime - 1/5/2014, 10:33 AM
Well this is getting sad...wait it already is.
JayJayCAW - 1/5/2014, 10:34 AM
Willing to bet it's all an act by Shia, the twerp is up to something lol
BlackIceJoe - 1/5/2014, 10:43 AM
I have to think he is doing this on purpose. Because how could anyone be this dumb. I bet it is all is for getting a new acting gig or getting his own reality tv show.
NovaCorpsFan - 1/5/2014, 10:46 AM
He's doing this for publicity.
TheRealistStarLord - 1/5/2014, 10:48 AM
Can someone link the short film for anybody to see?! THANK YOU!
PrinceOfCrime - 1/5/2014, 10:51 AM
thank god he's not it Transformers franchise anymore. I just can't stand his face
charlie2094 - 1/5/2014, 10:51 AM
This is either an act, or he has truly lost it and in deep with drugs....who knows, surely he must realise he keeps "plagiarising"...or maybe he's doing that on purpose now, to make it seem like a ruse...either way, somethings going on. That, or he has lost it :P
TheRationalNerd - 1/5/2014, 11:01 AM
Who really still cares about this? Can we just move on already? lol Jeez, who "DOESN'T" plagiarize these days of the internet?
DukeAcureds - 1/5/2014, 11:03 AM
This is ridiculous. I can't believe I clicked on this article. So he said the same thing a rapper said. We used to call things like that "quoting" or "homaging" or "parodying" back in the days that things made more sense and food came from farms. I really don't think it's "been a completely disrespectful act". This is just a classic example of the effect that Twitter has had on those in the public eye. If any one else had done anything like this, it really wouldn't matter all that much. And it shouldn't with Shia. Just because the guy's been in some pretty high-profile movies shouldn't make much of a difference. But all of a sudden the media's making a big "falling star" thing out of it? Shit. I thought Shia's star fell when he was confirmed to have been left out of TransFormers 4. I think folks should give the guy a break, to be honest. The internet really brings out everyone's childish schoolyard behavioral attitudes, doesn't it. It's like the cyber-wild west, I suppose. But at least concepts such as respect and honor were to be found in the wild west.
I don't know. I guess you either die a hero or you tweet long enough to see yourself become the villain. Shit, did I just plaigarise, then? Do I need a plane of some sort? Mind you, Batman plagairised that line, too. But, then he did have a bigassed plane in the next film. Hmmm.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 1/5/2014, 11:17 AM
If this isn't CBM's style, you guys wouldn't have let Nails post the first of many articles dealing with this, especially one that had more opinionated criticism than it did news reporting. I'm just saying.... You might as well report this story until it falls cause you've already started it.
ruadh - 1/5/2014, 11:27 AM
Alright, he's having a massive meltdown. Newsflash.
ATrueHero1987 - 1/5/2014, 11:38 AM
You know you've fallen if you plagiarized Gucci Mane's tweets.lmao!
MrNiklander - 1/5/2014, 11:59 AM
Why cant the guy just say I AM SORRY!?!?
BANE5000 - 1/5/2014, 12:23 PM
Stop while ur ahead LaBeouf, stop while ur ahead :]
bigdannymac - 1/5/2014, 12:48 PM
Who cares? This has nothing to do with CBM anymore

You are just giving in by posting these articles
exirae - 1/5/2014, 1:25 PM
Im pretty sure this is a kind of performance art.
xombygod - 1/5/2014, 1:34 PM
Who the [frick] cares, Rich people with problems, OH MY GODS!!!!!!!! How will they find the inner fortitude to handle it, Oh right pay somebody! Who gives a shit. Shitty Lebeef, Needs attention and here we are giving it, So [frick] him, [frick] his granma and I hope he gets a real [frick]ing problem someday. And [frick] all the other rich dicks who don't know what it means to have it " hard". If that [frick]er was on welfare and foodstamps and living in south central, I bet he'd find something else to worry about. And aint this site about Godsdamned comics!?!?
DudeGuyMan - 1/5/2014, 2:22 PM
Enough with this. This has now become just a way to get commnts on your articles. Let it die.
Tuuralihn - 1/5/2014, 2:23 PM
See kids, this is when you get an O.D. from Michael Bay.
QuestiontheAnswer - 1/5/2014, 2:23 PM
This is more hilarious than DC's cinematic universe. It's kind of obvious he's making a joke guys c'mon.
QuestiontheAnswer - 1/5/2014, 2:25 PM
And to all those guys complaining this isn't CBM-related, I didn't see you complaining about the Hunger Games articles.
BritishMonkey - 1/5/2014, 2:37 PM
Can we drop this stuff? None of it matters or has any relation to comics.
typicalfanboy - 1/5/2014, 3:22 PM
@DCMarvelFreshman- I've been saying that for a long time. it's not about comicbook movies anymore. it's just another celebrity site.
sameoldthing - 1/5/2014, 3:22 PM
It would be great if Shia did a movie & all his dialogue was lines from other famous movies.

Like he's onscreen & says: "You talking to me?" (Taxi Driver) then says,"I'll be back."
(Terminator) and so on & so on...too good.
