In his most recent apology to fellow actor, Daniel Crowes, Shia LaBeof took to the skies. The young adult actor, known for his role on the late Even Stevens and most recent Indiana Jones film, broadcasted his apology through the art of sky-writing.
The tweet, which accompanied LaBeouf’s commissioned piece in the Los Angeles skies this past Wednesday, was less than helpful in deciphering the actor’s motive.
LaBeouf later posted another tweet, which can be linked to the plagiarism scandal a bit more clearly. The scandal involved LaBeouf’s newest project, “HowardCantour.com,” being largely influenced—and not lightly—by Clowes’ 2007 comic book, “Justin M. Damiano.”
However it is unclear whether or not LaBeouf’s apologetic tweets and messages are even genuine, as those have fallen under the same suspicions. Does an apology count if it is not even in your own words? How much weight can it have, if indeed it does count?
These questions have prompted the public to believe that these tweets, along with the sky message, are part of an elaborate piece of performance art. It is possible these are only meant to boost LaBeouf’s presence in the industry, but only time will tell.
Until then, feel free to remain skeptical.
