So I can relate to the problems, if not the black eye, of Mario Licato, a New Yorker who got popped in the peeper last weekend because he looks too much like Shia LaBeouf.
Yes, you read that right. Someone out there up there knows what S la B looks like and blackened the eye of another person for getting too close to that line.
|What Shia really looks like|
Licato says the voicemail turned out to be on his work phone, which he doesn't normally check. That ought to come as wonderful news to his employers and to the 328 other people who have left him messages there...
But he said, "It was a pretty long voicemail. He was like, 'Hey, this is Shia LaBeouf … I just read an article that you were punched in the face because you look like me?' And he was like, 'Aw, man. That sucks. I'm so sorry. But I get it. It's happened to me before.' And then he was like, 'I don't know. I wish I was in New York. I'd come bring you soup.' He was just like, 'This sucks. I don't even know what to say. I'm sorry. People are just crazy. Just because you look like me?'
Welcome to 2016, and a world in which Shia LaBeouf calls a guy who got smacked for looking like Shia LaBeouf and Shia LaBeouf says a) he has been hit for the same reason and b) he would like to bring over some soup.
And he calls a man named Mario Licato "G."
I'm so confused.
