Lena Dunham Disses Shia LaBouf’s Apology

By: Courtney Wills - January 5, 2014

Lena Dunham, creator of the hit indie TV series on HBO, Girls, publicly dissed actor Shia LaBouf via Twitter recently.

Dunham’s Twitter account displays the writer’s view of LaBouf’s skywritten apology for plagiarism, calling a person who would use skywriters a “sociopath.”

LaBouf recently hired skywriters to create a 5-mile message saying, “I am sorry Daniel Clowes” over Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old actor was recently discovered, and subsequently blasted, for plagiarizing parts of his film HowardCantour.com using inspiration from Daniel Clowes’ graphic novels Justin M. Damiano.

Shia LaBouf wrote a short film in which he used parts of Clowes’ 2007 novels as his own work in the film.

LaBouf responded to Dunham on his own Twitter account, to which she then responded, “Vaguely recognized Shia Labeouf’s latest Twitter apology and realized it was MINE! Touché, Louis Stevens,” referencing LaBouf’s character on Disney’s Even Stevens.

Dunham later elaborated on her earlier post.

    I don’t know who Lena Dunham is, but she seems a little too fat to be dishing out criticism of someone who is thin. Once a fat person loses weight, they can point out the flaws in someone else. Until then, they have no room to talk about anything. Fat is the lowest rung on the ladder.

      You don’t know who Lena Dunham is, but you know she’s too fat to be allowed to have an opinion about someone else? You’re an idiot.

    What you said Scott is not very nice, but that’s not the biggest issues. The issue is that you and the other idiots that agree with you think you are right. God help us.
