Shia LaBeouf stages second skywriting stunt

Troubled actor Shia Labeouf has paid $25,000 for another skywriting stunt to send a message to his critics.

The Transformers star announced on Friday (10Jan14) that he plans to retire from Hollywood amid a plagiarism scandal after he was accused of basing his short film, Howard Cantour, on a graphic novel by Daniel Clowes.

In the wake of the allegations, the actor posted a series of remorseful messages on Twitter.com and hired a pilot to spell out an apology in the skies over Los Angeles.

And just hours before his retirement announcement on Friday, the actor once again paid skywriters to send out a new message, according to TMZ.com.

Editors at the website suggest a fleet of planes was commissioned by LaBeouf to write 'Stop creating' in huge letters above L.A.

Lawyers for Clowes have previously urged the actor to stop commenting on the case publicly and have even threatened him with legal action.
