Shia LaBeouf Retires From Public Life, Thanks Fans for Support

Shia LaBeouf has taken to his Twitter account – possibly for the last time ever – to tell his fans that he is retiring from “public life.”

“In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life,” the 27-year-old actor tweeted very early this morning. “My love goes out to those who have supported me.”

He concluded his message with “#stopcreating,” which alluded to a cease and desist letter he received from famed artist Daniel Clowes‘ lawyer.

In case you’ve missed the whole story, Shia plagiarized his new short film HowardCantour.com, which was a direct adaptation of a comic written by Daniel.

Shia posted the entirety of the cease and desist letter for his fans to read, and even made the image his Twitter cover pic, where he blacked out all of the lettering except “he must stop all efforts to create.” Check out the letter below.
