Shia Labeouf has apologized for a racist rant while being arrested, as the cops put it, for "suspicion of obstruction, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness" on July 8 in Savannah, Georgia. He blamed it on his "addiction."

The 31-year-old actor made headlines last weekend for the "heartless" rant that would later go viral, noted the Daily Mail.

Now he's sorry.

Labeouf had some choice words for police, both black and white, on different bodycam videos just waiting to be edited into a full-length Oscar-level rant (foul language warning):

"You’re going to hell, straight to hell, bro. You especially," he said to a black officer.

When asked why he said that, he replied: "Because you’re a black man."

A white officer jumped in.

"That don’t mean he’s going to hell," the officer said.

"It means a whole lot, bro," Labeouf replied.

Then he went hard core on the white officer:

"F*** you b****. Hey, when you go home to your wife, what do you tell her at night? You know she watches porn, she probably watches the f***ing big boys and s***, like looking at black d***," Labeouf said to the officer. "Don’t you feel f***ed up being white about that. Don’t you feel like “f*** man, I ain’t got all the goods”?

Labeouf also accused the black officer of being a racist, said US magazine.

"I have rights, I’m an American. You’ve got me in my hotel, arresting me in my hotel. For doing what, sir? I’m a f—king American. I pay my taxes," he yelled. "A black man arrested me for being white. You're going to hell, straight to hell, bro."

Labeouf, who claims he's "been struggling with addiction publicly" for some time now, took to social media on Wednesday to apologize for his jaw dropping rant.

"I am deeply ashamed of my behavior and make no excuse for it. I don't know if these statements are too frequent, or not shared often enough, but I am certain that my actions warrant a very sincere apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint. The severity of my behavior is not lost on me," said Labeouf.

"My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst. It is a new low. A low I hope is a bottom," he continued. "I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes."
