  1. A faggot just because he wouldn’t speeak to him? What a nice man! Actually I’d have punched him as well and I am one, lol.

  2. Erm…yea i’d have told him to sod off too, probably not decked him one though. Unfortunate choice of swear word, the “fan” was being a pain in the butt from the sounds of it.

  3. Possibly the worst part about being a celebrity is members of the public haranguing you for attention everywhere you go.
    There’s a school of thought that says “you knew what you signed up for when you signed in blood on the dotted line” but never having a private moment to yourself from the moment you walk outside your front door would make anyone flip eventually.
    That said, I seem to remember LaBeouf has previous form here with the casual homophobia, so it’s not like he can claim sainthood on that score either.

  4. … Why have you even posted this? This isn’t news, and has nothing to do with homosexuality. Are you seriously going to be reporting every use of the word ‘Faggot’ involving anyone of even the slightest level of fame from now on?

    The Mad Bull Tavern? LOL That name alone should have tipped him off. This news has been making its rounds stateside. I feel bad for some of these celebrities though. Many of the well meaning ones can’t seem to catch a break. And those so called “fans” surely knew shouting the word “faggot” would spark a fistfight.

    It goes to show that homophobia is simmering under the surface. Swap faggot for n*gger and let me know if you think its newsworthy

  7. Yeah but all I want to know is Shia queer or not? Even ‘gay for pay’ would do.

  8. James, I don’t. I hear people calling each other that word on a daily basis. People have got to stop giving words so much damn power to offend them. It’s sad and pathetic.
