And water is wet! Shia LaBeouf was arrested in Georgia last summer and he lashed out at cops bragging about his “millionaire lawyers,” singling out a black officer, and saying a white officer’s wife watches porn about “licking a black dick.” He also called female officers “bitch” and “whore.”
Shia has since apologized for his actions, but has revisited this issue in the new Esquire magazine profile… He claims to be sober now, reflecting on his mistakes… And says he conducted two months of practice interviews with his therapist to prepare for the magazine’s feature.
“What went on in Georgia was mortifying. White privilege and desperation and disaster … It came from a place of self-centered delusion … It was me trying to absolve myself of guilt for getting arrested.” And finally, “I fucked up.”
“To hear him say that he was disappointed in me probably changed the course of my life,” LaBeouf says. “’Cause I was still fighting. I was still on my ‘Look how fast they released the videos! They don’t release these!’ Just on my defense-mechanism-fear garbage. And you can’t do that to him. He keeps it one thousand with you, and that shit doesn’t even make sense to him. Zack can’t not shoot straight, and bless him for it, ’cause in that moment, I needed a straight shooter who I couldn’t argue with.”
