Shia LaBeouf has received a cease-and-desist letter from Daniel Clowes' attorney, basically asking him to stop messing with his client, according to Variety.

LaBeouf last week hired a skywriter to apologize to Clowes for plagiarizing his 2012 short film "HowardCantour.com" from a Clowes' comic. On Tuesday, LaBeouf tweeted about the cease and desist letter that was sent to LaBeouf's attorney Brian J. Wolf.

"Your client is seriously out of control," read the letter from the comic book artist/writer's lawyer Michael Kump.

Seems like he left out the part about LaBeouf being crazy as well.

Kump wrote, "We have been waiting since December 27th to hear how Mr. LaBeouf intends to make right, but all that has happened is further wrongful acts."

Kump suggested LaBeouf again violated his client's rights in a series of recent tweets related to the incident. For example, one said a new short film was in the works based on Clowes' work, titled "Daniel Boring."

"No analysis is needed to prove that Mr. LaBeouf's most recent transgressions violate Mr. Clowes' rights under the law," Kump wrote.

This is all really weird.

LaBeouf has apologized several times to Clowes on Twitter during the past month ("You have my apologies for offending you for thinking I was being serious instead of accurately realizing I was mocking you," he wrote). He has since tweeted a number of sarcastic messages, with words and famous apologies from other celebrities, including Kanye West and Taylor Swift.

Clowes' lawyer apparently doesn't find it funny.

"Leave Mr. Clowes alone and address these problems immediately," Kump wrote, calling LaBeouf's skywriting stunt "foolishness."

Then again, maybe Kump should encourage LaBeouf. Had you ever heard of Daniel Clowes before last month?

Stay tuned.
