Shia LaBeouf Apologizes For Racist Rant



Shia LaBeouf has apologized following the release of a string of videos which showed the actor shouting profanity-laced racial remarks at law enforcement officials.

On Monday, the actor tweeted that he is “deeply ashamed” and apologized to the arresting officers.

Shia blamed his racist rant on his addiction and said he was taking steps to handle his addiction. Shia went on to say he hoped this low in his life was a bottom.

Video released Tuesday showed LaBeouf, 31, getting arrested Saturday morning in Savannah, Georgia for allegedly being drunk in public.

LaBeouf is seen shouting at the officers: “What did I do sir? I have rights, I’m an American! You got me in my hotel doing what sir?”

Later in the video, he shouts at a black police officer: “So you wanna arrest white people who give a f—k and ask for cigarettes? I came up to you trying to be nice, you stupid b---h.”

In another video taken inside the police station where he was being fingerprinted after his arrest, LaBeouf says to the black police officer, “You’re going straight to hell, straight to hell, bro.”

When asked by a white officer why his partner was going to hell, LaBeouf said “because he’s a black man.”

LaBeouf was arrested in January after assaulting a 25-year-old at his anti-President Donald Trump installation “He Will Not Divide Us” display at the Museum of the Moving Image.

He was also arrested in 2008 and 2015 for drunk driving and public intoxication, respectively.

I almost feel bad for him. He's obviously got drug & alcohol problems and likely other mental illness driving his behavior as well. Hopefully he gets the help he needs and sticks with it.

For Real said...

I wonder if he will receive the Mel Gibson treatment. Nah, probably not.

Salaam said...

The rant isn't a result of his addiction - the rant is a result of 1) his chosen behaviors and 2) his inner beliefs.

Guesser said...

He went on a racist rant years ago, it was covered up. Now that he is of no value to Hollywood,they won't do it again.

Do Tell said...

Shithead LeDouche. Please go away.

Do Tell said...

He's not getting the Spielberg pictures anymore.

Allison said...

There's no such thing as douchebag rehab.

police dog said...

alcohol is truth serum, shia. everybody knows it.

hope his career gets killed by this, but I know it wont. fuck him.

police dog said...

and for the racism rehabilitation...whats your take on that?

Dannette said...

Yah, fuck everybody with severe underlying mental illness. Just fuck 'em. They're wierd and make me uncomfortable so get rid of fhem.

texasrose said...

He didn't say kill him. He said his career should get killed as in he can no longer work in the entertainment industry and make millions. I would have no problem with that.

texasrose said...

Its LaDouche. a not e

texasrose said...

No he is part of the Resistance so he'll get a pass.

Allison said...

That is true. People who do a 360 personality wise when drunk are exposing their true self. I am the same irritant whether drunk or sober SNORT.

LucasH said...

My take on that is, most of the people making comments on here about alcohol being "truth serum" are obviously unfamiliar with the disease of alcoholism. These embarrassing videos are not this dude's "innermost self" being exposed. These are videos of a sick man in the grips of mental illness. That doesn't excuse his behavior, and it doesn't function as a get-out-of-jail-free card. But it explains it. My armchair-psychology degree also informs me that his behavior would suggest other underlying issues, perhaps bipolar disorder (for example).
Since you asked.

LucasH said...

All of that being said, I have never met Shia Lebeouf. He might be a douchebag when he is sober too for all I know!!

Allison said...

Grow up. Run down there and help him if it bothers you so much.

Another Disney kid grown up to be severely messed up....
