"Regretful" & "Embarrassed" Does Not Equal "Sorry"

A rep for the Indiana Jones star says he's "embarrassed" by a YouTube video that made its way around the Internet yesterday and earlier today. The clip, which has been pulled by YouTube, shows LaBeouf participating in a sophomoric slapping contest with a friend during what appears to be a boozy house party. LaBeouf successfully provoked his pal to whack him by calling him a "faggot." "The video tape that is currently being circulated is several years old and captures Shia playing a game amongst friends in which he uses a derogatory word towards a friend," LaBeouf's rep tells me exclusively. "He regrets having used the word in any capacity and is very embarrassed that this footage is being seen by anyone."
As I mentioned before, I was pretty grossed out by what I saw in that video. I still think an apology is in order. [Source]
