Shia LaBeouf, my boo. Nobody is perfect, we know this, so that includes my imaginary boyfriend too. I didn’t report it, but last Saturday the actor was arrested in Georgia for public intoxication. During his arrest, he disrespected the police force and now he’s come to apologize not only for that but a few other demons. His statement inside.
Some people are trying to make Shia LaBeouf look like a racist. Now, although I have a major crush on him, I watched the videos with no prejudice and I didn’t feel offended. The Holes actor went off on the arresting cops, asking if he was getting handcuffed because he was a white man asking two Black men for a cigarette. White people love to demand that their arresting officer tell them exactly what they did wrong. Now, if a Black person does that he gets shot, mauled by a dog, tasered etc etc.
This article isn’t about what Shia said that night, its about what he’s saying today:
My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst. It is a new low. A low I hope is a bottom. I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps towards securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes.
Will Shia LaBeouf enter rehab again? Whatever his path, I’m rooting for him.
