Shia LaBeouf says he is “retiring from all public life.”

Of course, the actor said it on Twitter, where he’s been plagiarizing other people’s words for weeks, ever since he was caught stealing from a comic book artist.

So it’s very hard to know what to think when LaBeouf tweets, as he did on Friday, “In light of the recent attacks against my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life.”

He added, “My love goes out to those who have supported me… #stopcreating.”

LaBeouf, who will soon be dangling his penis in front of movie audiences, is almost certainly not actually retiring, partly because he’s a young actor with many opportunities, and partly because nothing he says on Twitter can be taken at face value right now.
