Actor Shia LaBeouf was caught on video berating a bartender and calling him a “racist” before being kicked out of a bowling alley in Los Angeles Wednesday night.

Mr. LaBeouf was seen drinking at Pinz Bowling Center in Studio City for several hours before the altercation began, TMZ reported.

A video shows the 30-year-old actor screaming at a bartender in Jerry’s Deli, which is connected to the bowling alley, about how he supposedly wouldn’t serve him an order of french fries. The bartender is seen with a vodka bottle resting on his right shoulder.

“They’re about to hit me with a Grey Goose bottle about french fries!” Mr. LaBeouf told a man trying to intervene.

“You f—ing racist b—h!” he continued to scream at the bartender. “You f—ed up! Call the police!”

Onlookers can be heard snickering in the background as Mr. LaBeouf is escorted out by staff. One patron can be heard saying, “He cocked that Grey Goose bottle though,” referring to the bartender.

TMZ reported that Mr. LaBeouf came back after realizing he was still wearing his bowling shoes.

It’s unclear why he laid the racism charge against the bartender. The Los Angeles-born actor, who describes himself as Jewish, has a father of Cajun descent.

Wednesday’s incident marks the latest in a series of misfortunes for Mr. LaBeouf. His post-apocalyptic war thriller “Man Down” grossed just $8.70, or the equivalent of one adult ticket, during its Friday night premiere at a U.K. theater. He’s also made headlines recently for his anti-President Trump project “He Will Not Divide Us,” which has been consistently targeted by 4chan trolls.
