Shia LaBeouf Apologizes to Lena Dunham – With a Lena Dunham Apology

Shia LaBeouf Apologizes to Lena Dunham – With a Lena Dunham Apology

The “Girls” creator called LaBeouf a “sociopath” for writing apologies in the sky, but seemed impressed when he lifted her own apology tweets to respond

Shia LaBeouf apologized to Lena Dunham this weekend after she poked fun at his sky-written apology to Daniel Clowes, and in keeping with his ongoing plagiarism theme, he used her own words to do it.

Here's the exchange, which ended in the creator and star of HBO comedy “Girls” admitting that the former “Even Stevens” star made an effective response.

LaBeouf has been plagiarizing a variety of apologies since his short film “HowardCantour.com” was discovered to have an awful lot in common with Clowes’ 2007 comic “Justin M. Damiano.”

“I f–ked up,” LaBeouf declared last month before tweeting a longer apology, which was identified to be quite similar to a comment in Yahoo answers from four years ago.

LaBeouf's idea to plagiarize Dunham's apology may not have been all that original either, providing he took a look at the second comment to Dunham's tweet, which was made 15 minutes before his response.

    Shia should apology for his parents creating him. Worthless piece of dung, that is what he is….

    • vigorlilover

      That would require you to apologize to yours first for creating such an idiot. I feel sorry for them.

      • Jim Christiansen

        And you were typing this when you were going down on Shia or taking it in the poop chute from him ?

    • Brian G

      Wow, you know him personally? Because if you don't, you'd be talking some major crap about someone whose shoes you can never stand in, so you'll never understand why he does what he does.

      • Jim Christiansen

        If I did I probably would have been arrested for assaulting his spoiled ass. The way you stick up for him my question to you is:
        Wow, you wanna blow him ? Because you are pretty much shooting a load in his poop chute then felching him already…

  • Film_Shark

    This is precisely why I don't follow celebrities on Twitter… Anyone with a blue check mark beside their name, avoid like the plague.

    • Brian G

      This gross thing is a celebrity? Gross.

  • Ricky Leiderman

    When was the last time he had an original thought?

    • disqus_k2RLNQ6xS3

      We are still waiting

    • harddazeknight

      That implies that there was a first time… I seriously doubt that.

    • tango_zulu

      Still waiting

    I hope Shia sticks to his word of retiring from public life forever due to the backlash he`s received. This guy has never had any talent to begin with and now he plagiarizes his ¨work¨.

    • rfk

      He even stole Indiana Jones from Harrison Ford.

    • Fayt Strife

      He's got more talent than Lena Dunham.

      • Sam

        Nah, more talent than Lena? They`re both obnoxious to me, LOL!! I wish she`d go away too.

    • vigorlilover

      What can his retiring honestly do to improve your life? Get over yourself.

    • Tricia Hope

      Trying to see if I've seen your name on anything important or creative…hmm…nope. What's your talent?

  • noredact

    What a bunch of biatches.

  • Brian G

    Lena pollutes my home when my wife watches girls and exposes me to the naked horrors on that show. She should be making blanket apologies to men after every episode. I can't think of anything more horrific than a blatantly unattractive woman being the person to decide that she'll go starkers 3 or 4 times an episode AND leave the attractive women clothed at the same time. I'm convinced that she only intended to find a way to make men pay for watching football on Sundays.

    • Brendan

      Everything about this quote is exactly why Lena Dunham makes the “exhibitions” she does. You are showing a blatant misogyny in your post. Men are constantly setting a double standard in their views of attractiveness and are so indoctrinated with this mindset of objectifying women. You can argue men should be apologizing for consistently exploiting females through media. Yet, how often is it the other way around? Not that hard to see if you take a closer look. And no, I'm not a feminist, I'm a guy like you.

      • Brian G

        I'm very sorry for exploiting females through media. Is that enough to get Fattie McGee to put her clothes on?

        • palerider2x

          You don't have to act like you speak for all men, Brian G. Not all think like you, and think only thin model type woman should be seen. And you don't have to watch either, you don't have a 2nd TV? Or just go in another room and rub one off to some hooter's girl, with fake boobs, like you do when that show isn't on.

          • Regressive Goosesteppers

            Spar us your little “NOT ALL WOMENHAVE TO BE THIN AND WAH WAH WAH” tantrum.

            Lena Dunham is just plain ugly, inside and out.

          • Brian G

            Why do I have to be an immature 16 year old who “rubs one off” to some Hooter's girl? I constantly tell my wife that “curvy is sexier than looking like a little boy” and if/when I rub one out, I do it to internet porn like everyone else, maybe 1 or 2 times a month.

            I simply hate that Lena Dumbham is so obnoxiously unattractive and feels the need to run around naked all the time when there's absolutely no reason for it other than to be a naked fat girl giving the finger to the traditional “don't be naked unless it's eye pleasing” unwritten rule of television.

            The fact that it's “misogynistic” to ask “Hey Lena, what's the point of your constant nudity on Girls?” only shows that she's doing it to make a point, not that it's appropriate for the show. “You know, the show's called Girls” is NOT a reason to be fat and naked.

            It's gross and I shouldn't have to see it when I flip through channels.

          • Tricia Hope

            I don't think it's the fact that she's not in the best physical condition so much as the fact that she does it so often that there's no art to it. It's only exhibitionism. I've known some VERY beautiful large women who had amazing confidence. So much confidence they didn't feel the need to put their bodies in display for others to gawk at like an exhibit at a freak show. The edginess of nudity is no longer there. Desensitization to this and other things makes it trashy, not creative.

      • Brian G

        Oh and if you were a guy like me you'd be more concerned with preserving your libido by not seeing Lena Dumbham naked than defending a sack of potatoes that strips down in weird and uncomfortable situations with her leading man. It's not cool.

      • buhda

        ACTUALLY YOUR A PHYSICAL MALE WITH A FEMALE BRAIN. MEN ARE HUNTERS AND GATHERERS AND U, MY FRIEND, BAKE BREAD AND DUST, BREAST FEED, AND S#CK C#CK! !LENA IS ugg! AND A DEFENSIVE LITTLE BOY!!

      • Regressive Goosesteppers

        “You are showing a blatant misogyny in your post”

        You're an idiot and you don't know what that word even means.

      • Brendan

        You're a mangina who parrots the feminist party line. Women objectify men not only for their looks but also for their social status, their bank accounts, and their ability to act as unpaid bodyguards. I may share your name, but I certainly don't think like you.

        I find Lena Dunham thoroughly unattractive, and the repulsion I feel for her has nothing to do with her looks. The only reason she has the career she does is because of our politically correct cultural zeitgeist. Most people sense the sexism that drives feminist ideology, but few are willing or able to articulate it because there are social and often economic and/or legal consequences for doing so. If more people did, however, then Ms. Dunham would cease to be someone men are supposed to like in order to establish or maintain their politically correct street cred, and more people of both genders would start to see her for the untalented misandrist she is.

  • jimboli1961

    Lena Dunham is a pig. She's rude and uses p.c. insults like a cloak, to hide her own piggish manners. Oh yes, she's also utterly unqualified to be nude on t.v. Yuck.

    • Fayt Strife

      Yeah I would pay money to never see her naked again.

  • jimboli1961

    Shia LaBeouf is a total tool, who was lucky enough to be miscast as a leading man in some really big movies. Who cares that he's plagiarizing? He's not worth noticing.

    • vigorlilover

      Lol, you noticed him enough to comment about him.

  • buhda

    DID LENA PLAY PRO FOOTBALL? HE WAS A LINEMAN FOR THE BEARS!!

    • Fayt Strife

      No he played for the Browns.

  • Jon Holden

    Lena Dunham is a disgusting blob. A fat talentless pig.

  • Jekyllac

    Lena Dunham is disgusting.

    • Brian G

      yes she is.

  • Tricia Hope

    I fail to understand why it is considered misogynistic for a man to say that he finds a woman unattractive and is unwilling to waste his time looking at them. I feel the same way about unattractive men (as I am a woman). It is a known fact that people in Hollywood use “sex” (even with ugly people) to hold viewers captive to their show for the higher ratings. There is nothing more misogynistic than using a woman no matter her appearance to sell your “creative ideas” to the world. Go ahead and PIMP YOUR ACTRESS, Girls. That's so less misogynistic than the comments here or or the comment asked at a recent panel by a TV critic. As far as Shia's plagiarised apologies? I think it's great that he pays that much attention to what people say on numerous subjects even if it feels like he has no words of his own. The man listens. AND apologizes. I'd like to see Girls or any member of that team apologize for all the nudity they make us watch on our downtime. Despite popular Hollywood “inbred” opinion (because they only hang out with each other), not everyone in the world discusses their sex life with everyone they see or meet. Get a grip. You're doing the nudity to be “edgy”. Newsflash…Nudity has been around a lot longer than Hollywood and we don't need you to tell us about it. I think with the population boom that has happened in the last century we all have a pretty good idea of what happens when the clothes come off.~Signed SERIOUSLY SICK of Double Standards

    • Brian G

      Well, Girls is written and produced by Lena Dumbham and so technically, she's pimping herself.

      • Tricia Hope

        Unfortunately this is true. Pimping is pimping no matter who does it. So sad. Please notice I didn't mention gender in my little rant as to who was doing the pimping.

        • Brian G

          If I weren't married to a wonderful amazing woman, Tricia, you might have been one of my 3 great loves,

          • Tricia Hope

            Lucky lady to have such a gentleman husband. However I think there are days my husband would disagree with you! Lol

  • Corie Johnson

    He stole Gucci manes too! Lmao

  • Regressive Goosesteppers

    Lena Dunham exemplifies sociopathy.

  • disqus_fM4XuKPdTq

    Both Twitter and Facebook should be abolished. Both are completely and totally useless and a one-way ticket to opening mouth and inserting foot. Let's do something productive…like have coffee with a friend or read a book. Far far more productive people.

    • Brian G

      Sorry, Facebook and Twitter have reconnected me with old friends, allowed me to raise funds for people I know who got cancer, informs me when someone passes away and gives me instructions on how to get to funerals, allows me to contact multiple people at the same time and so on and so forth.

      The whole point of social networking is apparently lost on you. It doesn't sound like you have a friend to have coffee with!

  • triple j

    wow can't believe how serious you all take a tv show! i don't mind seeing lena naked, i don't even think about it afterwards! but when she's on it does cross my mind that it's cool she's so confident. i'm half her size and don't feel comfortable in a bathing suit. and how fit are all you guys calling her a pig? if you don't like it don't watch! simple. no need to be so critical. i do agree twitter is completely stupid tho.

    • jimboli1961

      How fit do guys need to be, to notice that an ugly eyesore of a woman won't keep her clothes on? She may be confident…but most likely, she's an exhibitionist, and doesn't feel shame like the rest of us would. Don't give her credit. She doesn't deserve it.

  • Marcel

    “Touché, Louis Stevens.” is the best thing to come from twitter

  • Mark Jorge

    Really, do your comments have to be so disgusting and rude? none of you have any room to talk about either actors charater or looks.

  • Random Task

    A statement is not a work. Therefore, a statement cannot be plagiarized. Nice rhetoric, though.

  • star9000

    What a bunch of little male whiners on here. I wonder how fit and hot you all are? Turn the channel if you don't care to watch but stop your whining.

    • Dirk

      Lena, is that you?
