Shia LaBeouf, another plagiarized apology
Shia has apologized. No word yet if his statement was plagiarized. We'll see if he does it in skywriting. He clearly didn't write it in any case.
I couldn't stand him after the plagiarism thing. He's just an asshole. He kept it up for months, tweeting plagiarized apologies thinking he was extremely clever the whole time.
I don't care that he was drunkenly berating the police. But the racism---insisting that he was being persecuted for being white. Zsa Zsa Gabor made a much more credible claim that cops went after her because she was a celebrity. The guy who played Eddie Munster said the same thing when he was arrested for something and may well have been right.
More tapes have been released of LaBeouf telling a black cop he was going "straight to hell" because "a black man arrested me for being white", and telling a white cop that his wife watched pornography with African-American actors and had a preference for black men.
Look at how mad people got when Mel Gibson was arrested for drunk driving. He cheerfully addressed a lady officer as "sugar tits". I don't even know what that means. It certainly sounds objectionable. He told a Jewish cop that Jews started all the wars in history, which was a bit of hyperbole, but Israel was in the process of slaughtering thousands of defenseless men, women and children in Lebanon at the time. Israel has plainly been the aggressor in war after war.
I feel sorry for the poor devils making that movie, Peanut Butter Falcon. But what did they think would happen when they hired that idiot?
