Shia LaBeouf continues to apologize amidst his plagiarism scandal. In his latest way to express his regret, the former "Transformers" star apparently had a message written in the Los Angeles sky on New Year's day.

"I am sorry Daniel Clowes," the message read. LaBeouf tweeted its picture along with a note, "CLOUD: - vapor floating in the atmosphere - remote servers used to SHARE DATA - to make LESS CLEAR or TRANSPARENT."

The actor came under fire this December as his new short film "HowardCantour.com" turned out to be a carbon copy of Daniel Clowes' comic "Justin M. Damiano". His subsequent apology fell on deaf ears as it appeared similar to a 4-year-old Yahoo! Answer entry.

"Copying isn't particularly creative work," he wrote back then. "Being inspired by someone else's idea to produce something new and different IS creative work." He said he "got lost in the creative process and neglected to follow proper accreditation."

"I lifted the text, probably in one of my drunken stupors, probably approximately about a year ago," he furthermore said. "Sorry to my cast re:the massive disruption it's caused their lives. There's no one who wants this over more than I do. I'd like my life back."

He sent more apologies as new evidences in his plagiarism scandal emerged. He's claimed to have ripped off Charles Bukowski's poem for his self-published "Let's F***ing Party". Also, the "About" section in his website thecampaignbook.com is identical to that of publishing company PictureBox.

In more recent tweets, he wrote, "2014 Resolution - I need to work on being a less controversial tweeter. I am sorry for all the plagiarized tweets, they all were unintelligent, ambiguous and needlessly hurtful. You have my apologies for offending you for thinking I was being serious instead of accurately realizing I was mocking you."
