TRANSFORMERS Actor Shia LaBeouf Announces His Retirement

After being caught plagiarizing Daniel Clowes' comic book for his short film, LaBeouf pretty much just kept digging that hole until there really wasn't anywhere else to go. The actor has now sent out a Tweet announcing his retirement "from all public life".

It's safe to say Shia LaBeouf has had a pretty bad month. The Transformers actor stole huge chunks of material from a Daniel Clowes comic for his short film ‘Howard Cantour’ - and although he initially seemed to hold his hands up and just admit that he fucked up, what transpired afterwards was a bizarre serious of plagiarized apologies culminating in some damn skywriting of all things. So, we come to this:




He also added “My love goes out to those who have supported me” and the hashtag #stopcreating. I'm not even going to bother taking the piss out of that, Shia is giving it away after all. It's still not clear if he was attempting to spin all of this as some kind of performance art or even an elaborate joke, but either way things definitely seem to have gotten out of hand for the troubled fellow. To be fair, LaBeouf is a pretty good actor when he wants to be (see Lawless) so it would be a shame if this was the end of his career. Thoughts?

Does that mean he's gonna lock himself up in a theatre like Howard Hughes?
DefcoN - 1/10/2014, 8:00 AM
Or more likely end like Macaulay Culkin.

I am sure he stole this from Lars Von Nazi when he was banished from Cannes!

He should be locked at the same Hotel from OldBoy! And we should have access to the hidden cameras in his room!

if it's true, he will be back in a short time, just like Jay-Z did.

@ OldGreg

That is what I have been saying all along. As I have been saying this whole situation smells fishy, to me all his antics have been so obvious etc......

I'll admit, I always liked him as an actor, but after finding out he's such a douchebag, I don't really care that he's "retiring"
SLEDGE - 1/10/2014, 8:26 AM
Who cares? Lol. He's insignificant.
DrunkenNukem - 1/10/2014, 8:27 AM
So what...
JoeMomma29 - 1/10/2014, 8:29 AM
I think it is going to be a slow news day!

samsupes - 1/10/2014, 8:29 AM
This will last about 5 minutes…..dude has issues
NovaCorpsFan - 1/10/2014, 8:29 AM
First Bieber, now Shia?

Pinch me.
MercwithMouth - 1/10/2014, 8:30 AM
Lol, dude is sitting in his mansion laughing. He ain't going nowhere.
TheMexicanSuperman - 1/10/2014, 8:31 AM
@SLEDGE, yea like your life is something special.

I feel like is doing his own "Jaquin Phoenix quitting acting for a rap career" experiment.
JoeMomma29 - 1/10/2014, 8:31 AM
@ Yoss

Ouch!
number1hero - 1/10/2014, 8:32 AM

Who cares?
TheMexicanSuperman - 1/10/2014, 8:33 AM

Nivekian - 1/10/2014, 8:35 AM
Plagiarist and a coward. He's discredited, most likely blackballed, but we all know he will show back up.
QuestiontheAnswer - 1/10/2014, 8:36 AM
I find this guy hilarious. I doubt his retiring from acting or even writing.
JoeMomma29 - 1/10/2014, 8:37 AM
@Gusto

I heard that is the Pedo choice of all Straight Jackets, I also heard you were not only their spokesperson but also a client.
AlexanderLykins - 1/10/2014, 8:39 AM
Does anyone honestly care?
thedarkestknightzt - 1/10/2014, 8:40 AM
He's a great actor.
ShogunNevets - 1/10/2014, 8:43 AM
