Shia LaBeouf's had his fair share of controversy over the years but now, it seems that there's a tragic explanation stemming from his childhood. Read on to see what the actor had to say...
All in all, Shia LaBeouf is a pretty great guy.
via: GettyThe California-born actor is best known for his roles in movies such as Holes (2003), the Transformers trilogy (2007-2011), and Fury (2014).
But for some reason...
via: GettyThe actor often finds himself on the wrong side of his fans.
Take earlier this year, for example...
via: GettyShia presented the award for the category Best Live-Action Short at The Oscars alongside his co-star, Zack Gottsagen, who has Down’s Syndrome.
For those who haven't seen The Peanut Butter Falcon...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.
All went well with the presenting...
via: GettyBut the internet was not happy when Shia was seen to smile when Zack stumbled on his lines.
Shia's smile caused people to question his patience with Zack...
via: GettyAnd many interpreted it as a cruel gesture towards his co-star.

The actor also isn't one to deny his past...
via: GettyAnd a few years ago, Shia opened up about a turbulent time in his life that involved violence and addictions.
He issued this apology after he was arrested for drunk and disorderly behavior...

Fast-forwarding back to 2020...
via: GettyThe actor is yet again being slammed by fans for his most recent Hollywood venture.
The actor has landed a role in The Tax Collector, which is due to be released later this year.
via: IMDBHe will be playing the starring role as Creeper according to IMDB: "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."
Sounds promising, right?
via: IMDBWell, it turns out that fans have a problem with the way Shia looks in this new role.
Fans are confused by the way he looks as Creeper...And they feel that it doesn't look like Shia, at all.
The actor has been accused of taking on a Latino role...

The director spoke out for himself...
You just told them. It ain’t a cop movie. And Shia is playing something very specific. Not brown face. https://t.co/MZMugrPu9r— David Ayer (@David Ayer)1593661474.0
Well, it seems that the problems started way before Shia started his acting career.
via: IMDBIn fact, his tragic childhood has recently caught the internet's attention, and fans have been sending in their praises for the actor.
