Two artists who worked on Shia LeBeouf’s #IAMSORRY project released identical statements to confirm the actor had been sexually assaulted during his performance.
Shia LaBeouf told a reporter he was raped by a woman. Now, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner tweeted some “important clarifications.”
“Nowhere did we state that people could do whatever they wanted to Shia” and “As soon as we were aware of the incident starting to occur, we put a stop to it.”
“It wasn’t clear at the time precisely what had happened” and “She ran out, rather than simply walking away.”
“One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for 10 minutes and then striped my clothing and proceeded to rape me,” LeBeouf told the magazine. “Then walked out with her lipstick smudged to her awaiting boyfriend, who I imagine was quite hurt by it. All this happened in front of hundreds of people.”
