Bartender Sues Shia LaBeouf for $5 Million After Restaurant Incident
Shia LaBeouf is having a rough month. Actually, that may be an understatement — he’s having a rough decade. The former A-list Hollywood actor has spent most of his recent free time attacking Donald Trump and conservatives in general, while his career has fizzled faster than a wet sparkler.
Now, the one-time “Transformers” megastar is facing a $5 million lawsuit in California over alleged assault and defamation.
The man suing the far-left actor is David Bernstein, a bartender and supervisor at Jerry’s Famous Deli in Los Angeles. According to the New York Daily News, the restaurant worker is seeking damages from LaBeouf after the actor verbally attacked him and loudly called him a “f****** racist.”
It’s hard to argue against Bernstein’s claim. The altercation was caught on video, which went viral online. In the aftermath of the incident, the bartender claimed that he suffered “significant embarrassment and ridicule” for simply doing his job.
Court documents revealed that LaBeouf and his wife Mia Goth were at a nearby bowling alley when Goth came into the bar where Bernstein works. However, the staff refused to serve her because she appeared to be intoxicated.
That’s when LaBeouf also entered Jerry’s Famous Deli and reportedly flew into a fit of rage. The actor — who also appeared drunk to the staff — demanded that they be served.

When Bernstein followed the law and declined to serve the visibly intoxicated patron, LaBeouf reportedly slammed his fist on the bar and tried to force his way into an employees-only area of the restaurant.
“Bernstein, who’s worked at the bar for 32 years, put a bottle of Grey Goose vodka on his shoulder, claiming in the lawsuit he was using it to protect himself,” stated the Daily News.
Unsurprisingly, the Hollywood actor was asked to leave the location, but the incident wasn’t over. According to court documents, LaBeouf began yelling that the bartender was a “f****** racist b****” in an apparent attempt to stir up anger in nearby African-American patrons.
“Wake up, this mother f***** is a racist!” LaBeouf allegedly yelled.
It’s not the first time that the increasingly unstable actor has been involved in a legal dispute. Earlier this year, LaBeouf was arrested for assault after he shoved a man at an anti-Trump art exhibit in New York.
The liberal actor has been arrested at least seven times, according to the Washington Post. His latest film project, an anti-military movie titled “Man Down,” sold only one ticket in the United Kingdom.
It seems that LaBeouf has “transformed” a once promising career into nothing but a Hollywood joke. Perhaps if he was more focused on his work rather than constantly attacking conservatives — and bartenders — the actor would not be in this situation.
