Scoop: Shia LaBeouf makes lame skywriting apology 

Shia LaBeouf, recently busted for lifting a story by comic book writer Dan Clowes word-for-word and putting it in a short film, seemed to think that apologizing via skywriting would be enough to rectify the situation.

“I Am Sorry Daniel Clowes” was written over the skies of Los Angeles on New Year’s Day. However, Clowes doesn’t live there.

“I imagine airplane messaging is the norm in Hollywood,” Clowes’ editor told, “but someone really should have informed Mr. LaBeouf that Mr. Clowes lives in the Bay Area.”

Clowes reportedly is “exploring his legal options,” and rightly so.
