Shia LaBeouf

Last Friday, the world heard about the tale of Shia LaBeouf getting hauled out of a Broadway performance of Cabaret, which I couldn’t get to because of World Pride. Seriously, I’ve been working non-stop because of World Pride to the point where my legs gave out on the street yesterday and I accidentally fell onto my partner. But they had pulled brisket sandwiches and ribs, so not a bad trade-off. Anyway, turns out there was more to Shia’s meltdown, as earlier that day, he decided to start chasing after a homeless man for some food. Via Page Six

Troublemaking actor Shia LaBeouf chased after a homeless man — demanding he hand over a McDonald’s bag in Times Square — a few hours before he went berserk at the Broadway musical Cabaret, new video footage reveals. “He really wanted whatever was in that bag. He had so much focus … If there were French fries in the bag, maybe he really wanted to eat them,” a witness said. He added, “He was dodging people and yelling, ‘Yo, come on!’ … He was on a mission. It was so bizarre.”

Here’s the thing I don’t get: Shia LaBeouf has millions. MILLIONS of dollars. Which he could use, at any moment, to buy McDonald’s french fries. He could buy his own McDonald’s with the kind of money he’s bringing in. He could literally buy a McDonald’s and just have it make french fries only for him, and yet he will chase down a homeless dude for his bag fries. I know he’s perfectly fine with stealing someone else’s words and claiming them as his own, but chasing a homeless dude down for fries is like an impossible new low. Shia has entered moustache-twirling-cartoon-villain levels of absolute dickishness.
