Shia LaBeouf Says He Was Raped During His Performance Art Show

Shia LaBeouf Says He Was Raped During His Performance Art Show

Remember earlier this year, when Shia LaBeouf held a silent performance art show called “#IAMSORRY” in Los Angeles? It was pretty much a rip-off of Marina Abramović’s “The Artist Is Present,” in that visitors got to interact with LaBeouf in, apparently, whatever way they wanted to.

Frisky Rant: No, The Wrap, Bill Cosby Is Not Being Raped By His Accusers' Allegations

Bill Cosby: “People Should Fact Check”

Bill Cosby Refuses To Respond To Rape Allegations As Another Alleged Victim Comes Forward

Yesterday, alleged serial rapist Bill Cosby finally “broke his silence” about the controversy surrounding him in an interview with Florida Today. Well, here’s a depressing fact: 17 women as of this posting have come forward alleging Cosby raped and/or sexually assaulted them and yet only two dozen ticket holders decided to skip his show last night in Melbourne, Florida. The remaining attendees gave Cosby two standing ovations. [NY Times]
