Pundits weigh in on LeBeouf-gate


This is doubtless just a teensy tinesy sampling of a still evolving story. Public opinion is Urijah Faber, and Shia is Michael MacDonald in this scenario.

Unrelated but still germane:


  1. Tommy Raiko says:

    “LeBeouf-gate”? Why not “Shia-gate,” which strikes me as somewhat more pleasing to the eye/ear? :)

  2. I love that segments of “his” apology were also copied from other sources. Hilarious. Respond to plagiarism with more plagiarism.

  3. Definitely time for some money to change hands to make the ‘apology’ more tangible.

  4. It’s not a question of “crediting” Clowes. If that was the only concern, it would be easily taken care of. He made a movie of the guy’s material and didn’t even contact the author for permission. That’s basic filmmaking. He obviously thought no one would notice, that Clowes is “little people,” and that anything that strikes his fancy is his for the taking.

  5. David a says:

    Shia should have remade Art School Confidential instead.

  6. krylox says:

    like todd alcott says.

  7. I wonder if he knew that Transformers wasn’t just inspired by Hasbro toys…
