Shia LaBeouf apologizes for plagiarizing by plagiarizing

Hours after posting his new short film online, actor Shia LaBeouf was accused of plagiarizing — word-for-word in some places — a graphic novel by Daniel Clowes. While LaBeouf apologized online, some of his tweets seemed familiar. Turns out he lifted sentences from Tiger Woods' 2009 apology statement for infidelity, Shepard Fairey's "Hope" poster scandal apology and others.
