Shia LaBeouf’s Strange Public Apology: #IAmSorry, a Performance Art Exhibit
Shia LaBeouf may have officially renounced his celebrity status, but he’s definitely doing everything he can to stay relevant despite claiming that he no longer wants to be a public figure. If you thought showing up to a premiere with a paper bag over his head was weird, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
In his latest bizarre attempt at an apology for plagiarising writer Daniel Clowes, Shia has set up his own performance art installation on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show, titled #IAmSorry, was announced via press release.
“Shia LaBeouf is sorry. Sincerely sorry. He will be in situ at 7354 Beverly Boulevard for the duration. Implements will be provided. Free admission,” the press release said.
So what happens when you visit Shia’s exhibit? You are first led to a collection of said “implements” — a whip (corresponding to Shia’s role in Indiana Jones), some Transformers toys, Hershey’s kisses, a bottle of Jack Daniels, a pair of pliers, a bottle of cologne, and, most notably, a bowl of printed out Tweets that mock Shia.
Visitors then choose an object and are led to another room, where Shia sits with his famous “I am not famous” paper bag over his head. You can speak to Shia as much as you want, but it doesn’t mean he’s going to respond.
We get it, Shia: #YouAreSorry… but we’re beginning to worry about you.
