KEY POINTS

  • Netflix removed Shia LaBeouf's name from its awards consideration list, movie summary and stills for "Pieces of a Woman"
  • Twitter users have mixed opinions on Netflix's move against LaBeouf
  • Some online users slammed the cancel culture and said LaBeouf badly needs help

Shia LaBeouf's name is no longer on Netflix's Awards page after his ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs filed a lawsuit against him for allegedly being abusive.

The "Transformers" star was initially part of Netflix's award consideration page for his upcoming movie "Pieces of a Woman." However, the streaming giant decided to omit his name on the site's For Your Consideration page, movie summary, movie stills and from any award consideration. The move happened after Twigs claimed that he abused her physically, mentally and emotionally, People reported.

"Martha (Vanessa Kirby) and Sean are a Boston couple on the verge of parenthood whose lives change irrevocably when a home birth ends in unimaginable tragedy. Thus begins a yearlong odyssey for Martha, who must navigate her grief while working through fractious relationships with her husband and her domineering mother (Ellen Burstyn), along with the publicly vilified midwife (Molly Parker), whom she must face in court," the updated page read.

LaBeouf played as Sean Carson in the film. His co-star, Kirby, is up for Best Actress for her performance in the movie. People reached out to Netflix about the issue but hasn't received a response yet.

Meanwhile, the netizens have mixed reactions to the incident. Some felt bad  because LaBeouf was being judged without due process.

"Guilty until proven innocent is the new norm it seems," one wrote.

"You have a problem in the United States, you create stars but you don't support them when they have behavioral problems. No, you'd rather destroy them even more," another commented.

Meanwhile, many expressed their support to the "Honey Boy" star because they felt that he needed help and the incident only made things worse for him. The online users stressed that cancel culture is getting ridiculous.

"Oh my god. The man has a problem. Is this what we do when people need help? Shun them away?" one wrote.

"He's a good guy. Just misunderstood," a different netizen added.

"He’s mentally ill. Should he be punished for being sick?" a third user asked.

Some Twitter users seemed to support Netflix. One said they already distanced themselves from LaBeouf a while ago. Another said his issues were visible in the "Honey Boy" film.

"If you watch his kind of autobiography Honey Boy, you would see how he has all these problems!" another wrote.

"Always better not to wait until there is an actual trial," another added with thumbs up emoji.

The netizen could be referring to Johnny Depp. Just recently, Netflix also removed all of Depp's movies from its platform in the United States and several users were sad and disappointed with the move.

Meanwhile, LaBeouf was spotted making out with Margaret Qualley at the airport on Saturday. He picked her up and they kissed outside his pickup truck. Their sighting came two months after they stripped naked and romped on the bed for her sister Rainey Qualley's music video for "Love Me Like You Hate Me."
