Stealing someone else's words and passing them off as his own is nothing new, for The Beef but this is just epic:
Shia LaBeouf’s critically acclaimed 2012 short HowardCantour.com was available online today — until people familiar with indie comics noticed its remarkable resemblance to Justin M. Damiano, a 2007 comic by Ghost World creator Dan Clowes. The video, available on the short’s official website, suddenly became password protected shortly after bloggers started commenting on the similarities this afternoon.
After being called out on it - Patton Oswalt was ALL over him on Twitter, he apologizes (shittily) and apparently plagiarized that as well
What an amazing specimen.
