Two artists who worked on Shia LaBeouf’s infamous I Am Sorry art show earlier in the year have confirmed that he was indeed sexually abused by a woman during the show.
As ENTmania! reported, the actor revealed during a recent interview with Dazed that ‘one woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for 10 minutes and then striped my clothing and proceeded to rape me.’
Some believed him, many others doubted him. But on Sunday, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner went on Twitter to make some ‘important clarifications’ on the issue.
‘A couple of important clarifications about our #IAMSORRY project earlier this year: Nowhere did we state that people could do whatever they wanted to Shia during #IAMSORRY,’ tweeted Rönkkö. ‘As soon as we were aware of the incident starting to occur, we put a stop to it and ensured that the woman left.’
When broadcaster Piers Morgan asked why the rapist was allowed to escape, Turner replied, ‘It wasn’t clear at the time precisely what had happened & the 1st priority was to ensure everybody’s safety in the gallery.’
‘She ran out, rather than simply walking away. Beyond that, it’s not my place to comment,’ Turner added minutes later.
