Oh, Shia LaBeouf. As if the actor’s protest couldn’t get any more cook your rabbit kind of loony (see Shia LaBeouf Goes Full Crazy, Leads Violent Anti-Trump “Art Project”), LaBeouf was arrested for grabbing that same guy we just linked to in the paraentheses. Here, watch the creepy “He will not divide us” drones as LaBeouf gets LaRested.
The arrest happened right in the middle of Shia’s “He will not divide us” live stream … which has been going on since President Trump’s inauguration. Cops tell us a guy walked in front of the mounted camera and said something — possibly regarding Trump — but whatever it was, Shia got pissed.
Shia grabbed for the guy’s scarf, and allegedly scratched him in the process. As TMZ first reported … NYPD has been posted up at the protest site since Monday — so officers quickly moved in and busted Shia. Some of his fellow protesters said, “Shia took a hit for us. There were all these Nazis here, he came out and tried to protect us.”
I’m sorry, “Shia took a hit for us?” Is the actor Cool Hand Luke? Because if so, my man’s acting isn’t good enough. Also, if you’re going to assault someone, do it off camera. No, I’m not condoning assault. Frankly, my soul is tickled by Shia getting all rough and tumbley on a live stream. It’ll make criminal negotiations so much simpler. Possibly save the state some money. But Shia’s onscreen violence isn’t doing much for the stereotype that actors are nincompoops.
It’s perfectly acceptable to stage a protest. Even if you sound like creepy drones from a B sci-fi movie. The flip side of it, though, is people are also allowed to protest on the other side of you. Or even protest you. Or in this case, protesting Shia. Well, Shia didn’t like that someone else wanted to exercise their right to free speech when that same free speech was directed at him. That’s when Shia went from drone to Terminator. Hasta la vista, baby diaper-model.
It’s typical of the left, really. Freedom for me but not for thee.
