Shia LaBeouf blames Georgia arrest on 'white privilege'

Shia La Beouf covers 'Esquire' magazine's April 2018 issue

The #TAKEMEANYWHERE director hit a new low on July 8 when he repeatedly called Chatham County police officers 'b****' and 'w****' during his sixth arrest (for obstruction, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness) in Savannah. He was in Georgia filming a movie called The Peanut Butter Falcon, which stars a developmentally disabled man who leaves a nursing home to become a professional wrestler. In a video of LaBeouf's arrest obtained by ET, the actor repeatedly swore at his arresting officers, also telling a black officer that the president "doesn't give a f**k about you, and you wanna do what?" LaBeouf later said the man would go to hell "because he's a black man". While the rest of the cast and crew didn't take issue with LaBeouf's behavior (at least, to his face), Gottsagen let him have it.

When asked by Esquire if he had tried reaching out, LaBeouf replied, "Of course, bro".

"What went on in Georgia was mortifying", LaBeouf said. "White privilege and desperation and disaster..." It came from a place of self-centered delusion ...

'The first time I got arrested with a real charge, it stemmed from the same shit.

To be more frank, he added, "I f-ed up". "I'm a buffoon. My public outbursts are failures".


He said: 'My public outbursts are failures. "They're not strategic. They're a struggling motherf--er showing his ass in front of the world". I was still on my 'Look how fast they released the videos!

In a self-reflective interview that spanned from his conception to the most recent events in his life, LaBeouf talked about some of his highlights, past traumas, and regrets, along with some opportunities he passed on - including The Social Network. "The truth is, in my desperation, I lost the plot". It's the same feeling of "You need to avenge your mother" he says contributed to his first arrest when he went after a man who "bumped into my mother's vehicle with his auto in a parking lot". "He took all my f-king clothes", LaBeouf said.

"When I brought her backstage, he was a f-king sweetheart to her". So I went after the dude with a knife'.

"For a long time, I thought that life was secondary to art", the 31-year-old tells Esquire magazine in his first sit-down interview since his arrest.
