Shia LaBeouf Follows Gucci Mane’s Lead, Blames Lean Addiction for Recent Troubles
Has Shia LaBeouf been in the company of Gucci Mane? The Hollywood actor recently blamed his unprofessional behavior on an addiction to “lean” just like the rapper.
After being accused of plagiarizing comic book author Daniel Clowes for his new movie HowardCantour.com, Shia took to Twitter to address his actions (and deliver a subsequent apology). The ‘Transformers’ star blames his behavior on a lean addiction.
Im addicted to lean & that shit ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse 4 skywriting

LaBeouf expressed his deep regret for his actions via a skywritten message on Jan. 1. “I am sorry Daniel Clowes,” read the message.
Initially, LaBeouf tried to draw a distinction between copying and being inspired.
Copying isn't particularly creative work. Being inspired by someone else's idea to produce something new and different IS creative work.

I've been drinking lean for 10plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit (cont)

We wonder how Gucci Mane feels about his apology being plagiarized.
