Shia LaBeouf isn’t exactly a champion of race relations lately.
“Transformers” actor LaBeouf was captured on camera telling a black police officer that he’s “going to hell” because he’s black, in footage from the actor’s arrest in Georgia this weekend, TMZ reports.
“You’re going to hell, straight to hell, bro,” LaBeouf tells a black officer in the video.
Asked by another officer why LaBeouf thinks his colleague is going to hell, LaBeouf replied, “Because he’s a black man. … That means a whole lot, bro.”
In a largely incoherent rant, LaBeouf went on to complain of “a black man who arrested me for being white,” denying that he’s racist because he was “asking three black people to have a cigarette.”
LaBeouf was arrested in Savannah over he weekend and booked on suspicion of disorderly conduct, obstruction and public drunkenness.
This isn’t the first bit of damning footage stemming from LaBeouf’s arrest to be made public. On Tuesday, video from LaBeouf’s arrest emerged, in which the actor called a police officer a “dumb f—” and a “stupid b—-.”
LaBeouf continued, “You got a President who don’t give a sh– about you, you’re stuck in a police force that don’t give a f— about you and you want to arrest white people who give a f—, who ask for cigarettes?”
“I came up to you trying to be nice, you stupid b—-,” LaBeouf added. “I came up to you asking for a cigarette, you dumb f—! Why would I ask for a cigarette if I was racist?”
