Though critics enjoyed Shia LaBeuof's 2012 directorial debutHowardCantour.com, after making the film available on Vimeo Monday, the tide quickly turned once viewers began to notice the nearly identical resemblance to Daniel Clowes' 2007 comic Justin M. Damiano.
LaBeouf doesn't even bother to hide the source material in the film, stealing Clowes' opening narration verbatim, along with several other lines of dialogue, but the actor failed to cite Clowes in the credits. Once the criticism began gathering speed, the video was taken offline (though it is still available on Buzzfeed).
Celebs who've survived scandal
Clowes, who's best known for Ghost World, said he's "shocked" and doesn't understand why LaBeouf would so shamelessly steal his work. "The first I ever heard of the film was this morning when someone sent me a link. I've never spoken to or met Mr. LaBeouf," Clowes toldBuzzfeed. "I've never even seen one of his films that I can recall — and I was shocked, to say the least, when I saw that he took the script and even many of the visuals from a very personal story I did six or seven years ago and passed it off as his own work. I actually can't imagine what was going through his mind."
Megyn Kelly caused controversy Wednesday night when she responded to a Slate article questioning the depiction of Santa Claus as white.

For most, the Bill Brasky sketch on the Paul Rudd-fronted SaturdayNight Live was a highlight — but not Tim Meadows.
The former SNL cast memeber, who had previously appeared in four Brasky sketches, took to Facebook to express his displeasure at not being invited to participate.
"I guess it just dawned on me that I mean NOTHING to them...I'm just being overly sensitive. It doesn't matter in the long run. I'm grateful for what they did for me. But everyone in a while as a fan and a alumni, it stings a little to not even be considered as someone they would like to come back around," Meadows wrote.

"I'm embarrassed. Not just myself," Ford told Matt Lauer. "My family, my friends, my supporters. I take full responsibility for that. We've all made mistakes, Matt. I'm not perfect. Maybe you are, maybe other people are. I've made mistakes. I've admitted to my mistakes."
