“Welcome to New York, buddy.”
There’s a love/hate relationship with Shia LaBeouf. Some people loved his recent livestream sessions, some people hate him because… Probably because he’s Shia LaBeouf. Maybe he just has an unlikable face?
A New York man found out that it’s probably the latter.
Mario Licato was sucker-punched on the subway for looking just like Shia LaBeouf, and to add insult to injury, the first EMT guy to respond on the scene greeted him sarcastically with “Welcome to New York, buddy.”
According to Cosmopolitan, Shia LaBeouf actually called Licato to tell him how sorry he was that this happened:
“He sounded bummed and genuinely really bad,” said Licato. “Like he just felt like shit. Like I can’t believe this happened. This sucks. And he was just like, ‘I wish I was in New York but I’m not.’ I thought it was really funny that he wanted to bring me soup.”
Yep. Shia LaBeouf actually offered to bring him some soup. How do you turn that down? Lunch with Even Steven? Count me in!
Not to mention dude really looks like he could use some.
