Fans have been left confused and have accused actor Shia LaBeouf of cultural appropriation after watching the trailer for his new movie…
The California-born actor is best known for his roles in movies such as Holes (2003), the Transformers trilogy (2007-2011), and Fury (2014).
The actor often finds himself on the wrong side of his fans.
Shia presented the award for the category Best Live-Action Short at The Oscars alongside his co-star, Zack Gottsagen, who has Down’s Syndrome.
It centers around a man with Down’s Syndrome (Zack) who, with the help of his friend (Shia), attempts to pursue a career as a wrestler.
But the internet was not happy when Shia was seen to smile when Zack stumbled on his lines.
And many interpreted it as a cruel gesture towards his co-star.
Many fans rushed to the actor’s defense and they reminded others that Shia only accepted the opportunity to present at the Oscars on the condition that Zack could do it alongside him.
And Shia was only smiling while experiencing the moment of a lifetime with his friend.
And a few years ago, Shia opened up about a turbulent time in his life that involved violence and addictions.
And even though many fans were left disgusted by his behavior, there were also many who appreciated his honesty and how he took responsibility for his actions.
The actor is yet again being slammed by fans for his most recent Hollywood venture.
He will be playing the starring role as Creeper and IMDB have said about the movie:
“A “tax collector” for a crime lord finds his family’s safety compromised when his boss’s old rival shows up in LA and upends his business.”
Well, it turns out that fans have a problem with the way Shia looks in this new role.
And they feel that it doesn’t look like Shia, at all.
And because he is a white man, fans aren’t impressed with this interpretation… nor are they impressed with director David Ayer’s response to the accusations.
And many feel that using Shia for a Latino role was unnecessary when there are so many Latino actors out there.
A vast majority of people on Twitter have spoken out about how Shia’s new role isn’t portraying cultural appropriation.
And he confirmed that Shia’s role is very specific and not at all brownface.
And fans are wanting others to stop trying to cancel Shia’s new movie.
