Shia LaBeouf has apologised for using the word “faggot” to describe a pal in a boozy YouTube.com video.
The Indiana Jones And The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull star says he’s “embarrassed” by the online footage, which first surfaced on Monday.
The clip, in which the actor challenges a pal to slap him around the face, has since been pulled from the website.
A spokesman for LaBeouf told Eonline.com: “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. He regrets having used the word in any capacity and is very embarrassed that this footage is being seen by anyone.”
The video is just the latest embarrassing incident for LaBeouf – he was arrested last year for refusing requests to leave a drugstore in Chicago, Illinois and an arrest warrant was issued for him in March after he was accused of failing to turn up to court to face a charge of smoking in a prohibited area in California.
The trespassing charges were dropped and LaBeouf pleaded guilty to the illegal smoking charges and was ordered to pay a $500 fine.
