He's pretty much lived out our childhood fantasies - playing with life-sized Transformers and finding out he's Indiana Jones' kid - but it seems that wasn't enough for Shia LaBeouf. The actor also wants to be a filmmaker, so he made a short called HowardCantour.com that premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival. Thing is, that movie has turned out to be a total rip-off of Ghost World author Daniel Clowes' graphic novel Justin M. Damiano. That's pretty bad, right? Well, after admitting that he "fucked up" on his Twitter page, astute Internet types realized that he even plagiarized part of his apology from Yahoo! answers. Oh, Shia...we think you just might deserve all the nasty but hilarious Twitter responses folks are having to this situation. Here are our ten favorites (properly cited, of course).
