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“>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.

I've always felt, utterly and unchangeably, that only sociopaths hire skywriters.
I don't mind creating debate with thoroughly considered artistic expressions but I don't want to offend with a tweet. Sorry world.
Im addicted to lean & that shit ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse 4 skywriting
Vaguely recognized Shia Labeouf's latest twitter apology and realized it was MINE! Touché, Louis Stevens.
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.
@lenadunham hope you're ready for a plagiarised insult from Shia Lebouef
