Some celebs use Twitter to announce they're quitting, well, Twitter.
On New Year's Day, the actor posted an aerial apology, saying "I am sorry Daniel Clowes" in skywriting. He had the skywriting done in Southern California, while Clowes lives up north in the Bay Area.
But it appears that the straw that broke the cease-and-desist camel's back came with a Wednesday tweet in which LaBeouf captioned a photo, "Storyboard for my next short 'Daniel Boring' its like Fassbinder meets half-baked Nabokov on Gilligan's Island."
"David Boring" is a comic series by Clowes, the New York Daily News noted in a story about LaBeouf posting a cease-and-desist letter from Clowes' camp the same day -- a letter alleging that the tweet constituted additional copyright infringement.
Skip to Friday and we have LaBeouf's claim he's retiring from public life. Which makes us wonder, in context, is he being serious, or just doing some more mocking? Perhaps the latter, as he finally tweeted a photo of the #stopcreating hashtag -- as skywriting.
