Shia LaBeouf ‘embarrassed’ by tape with gay slur

Shia’s been having a rough year since he started Transforming into his real self, no?

A video surfaced on YouTube on Tuesday showing Shia LaBeouf in a slapping contest with a friend where the “Indiana Jones” actor hurls anti-gay slurs to encourage his friend to slap him.

A rep for the actor told E!’s Marc Malkin that he is “embarrassed” by the video, where LaBeouf is seen calling his friend a “f—-t” multiple times.

“The videotape that is currently being circulated is several years old and captures Shia playing a game among friends in which he uses a derogatory word toward a friend,” a rep for the actor tells Malkin.

“He regrets having used the word in any capacity and is very embarrassed that this footage is being seen by anyone,” the rep said.

This isn’t the first controversy for the 22-year-old actor.

An arrest warrant was issued for LaBeouf earlier this year after failing to appear in court to face an illegal smoking charge.
