Shia LaBeouf arrest gets celebrity attention

Shia LaBeouf is getting all the wrong kinds of attention off camera as of late.

The “Transformers” actor was arrested for being disruptive during a Thursday night performance of the Broadway musical “Cabaret,” according to NY Daily News.

As the arrest continues to make headlines, celebrities have tweeted their thoughts on the recent incident.

“Our @Cabaret_Musical Stage Manager last night at intermission: This is your places call and Shia (LaBeouf) has left the building in handcuffs,” tweeted Alan Cumming, who stars in the Broadway revival of “Cabaret.”

The arrest brought on a few hilarious tweets from “Girls” star Lena Dunham.

“I feel you Shia: In 1993 I was carried out of Les Mis screaming because I couldn’t handle the intimations of death,” Dunham tweeted.

She added, “Seriously feel awful for the performers and am sorry to contribute to celebrity takedown culture but this is the best current event we have.”

She also quoted her “Girls” co-star Gillian Jacobs’ who stated, “You know you’re a f—- G when you’re arrested during Cabaret.”

Zach Braff even hilariously tweeted, “In Shia’s defense, @Alancumming’s nipples make me want to go crazy too.”

Despite the tweets, Shia LaBeouf’s recent arrest could reportedly cost him his career.

“If his career hasn’t reached the tipping point, he’s right there on the verge of it, where just the announcement that Shia LaBeouf is in a movie is going to draw more snickers than, ‘Oh I’m looking forward to it,'” film critic Richard Roeper told the Daily News.

He added, “If I’m in a studio or I’m a producer and I’m writing the checks, I wouldn’t cast LaBeouf right now. Because there are a lot of other talented young actors who show up on time, do a really good ob and you don’t have to worry about what they’re going to do between the time you’re yelling ‘Cut,’ and the time you’re yelling, ‘Action,’ the next morning.”
