Controversy has surrounded Shia LaBeouf ever since the actor/director hired an airplane to skywrite an apology to Daniel Clowes who accused the actor of plagiarizing his work for LaBeouf’s HowardCantour.com short film. In the midst of media criticizing his antics, LaBeouf’s latest sarcastic social media apology referenced Gucci Mane’s infamous apology tweet after his rap industry rant last September. Compare both tweets from Shia LaBeouf and Gucci Mane below.
Im addicted to lean & that shit ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse 4 skywriting

He was also accused of copying Kanye West apologizing to Taylor Swift on Twitter after the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards incident. He wrote, “It starts with this…I’m sorry Taylor.” Well back in December, Shia tweeted this to Daniel Clowes.
It starts with this…I’m sorry @danielclowes
