Shia LaBeouf Is Now Taunting Oakland's

We were hoping this plagiarism-apology-plagiarism-apology-plagiarism issue between Shia LaBeouf and, essentially, Shia LaBeouf would be over by now, but apparently he hasn't learned his lesson yet.

In the latest installment of LaBeouf fallout, after stealing Clowes work and passing it off as his own, is yet -- more theft.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, LaBeouf received a cease-and-desist letter from Clowes' lawyers telling him to knock-off the bad behavior, but LaBeouf just can't seem to keep out of trouble.

LaBeouf took to Twitter to share the letter from the lawyers as well as retweeted the tweet (as well as re-posting the original tweet, how nice) that incited the letter -- how his next piece of "original" work would be called "Daniel Boring," which, yes, is very similar to another piece of Clowes' work, "David Boring."

Let's hope LaBeouf apologizes one more time, and then we never hear from him about this again.

Both Shia and Joseph gordon are horrible actors and train wrecks in disguise. Who cares what they do?

wow. Shia is a complete loser. What is he hoping to accomplish? He, in fact, *sounds* like a pretentious jerk-off character created by Daniel Clowes: "...Storyboard for my next short 'Daniel Boring' its like Fassbinder meets half-baked Nabokov on Gilligan's Island ".

That no talent, former child actor, poor excuse for a human being called Shia LaBeouf needs to crawl under a rock and die.

Not only is Shia behaving like a total jerk-ass, he's also stealing. Worse, he's stealing from one of the best indie cartoonists in America. The fact anyone besides him is investing in his bs projects is the biggest cause for concern - Hollywood hates it when you download a movie, but if you make a movie with stolen content - hey it's cool! Jerks!
