A video of actor Shia LaBeouf using a gay slur appeared on YouTube Monday.
The clip shows LaBeouf and a friend partaking in a slapping contest. The actor uses the slur in order to entice his friend to hit him harder.
The video has since been removed from YouTube.
"The videotape that is currently being circulated is several years old and captures Shia playing a game among friends in which he uses a derogatory word toward a friend," LaBeouf's rep told E! Online. "He regrets having used the word in any capacity and is very embarrassed that this footage is being seen by anyone." (The Advocate)
