Shia LaBeouf has announced to retire from all kinds of affairs in his public life. He revealed the decision in his Twitter account. The decision can be the result of some recent controversies surrounding him and his new movie.
In his tweet, LaBeouf said that he has decided quitting from public life after getting what he calls attack on his artistic integrity. He has also expressed gratitude to his fans who gave him support.
All the fuzz started when LaBeouf made a short film titled ‘How’ardCantour.com’, narration of which was copied word by word from ‘Justin M. Damiano’, which is a comic book written and illustrated by Daniel Clowes and released in 2007. Later LaBeouf apologized in his tweet for it but said that copying and being inspired by another piece of work is not the same thing. He said that he was greatly inspired by Clowes’ work and made an apology for not giving him the credit.
According to Buzzfeed, the first part of his original tweet was a cut-paste from the yahoo answer community. He continued posting insincere apologies before finally stating that all those were just mocking statements.
On Friday came his announcement to retire from public life, which might be another trick rather than serious talk considering his past activities.
