On Thursday night, Shia LaBeouf was dragged out of a performance of Cabaret and arrested for “being disruptive” and smoking inside the theater. He was arrested and charged with criminal trespass and two counts of disorderly conduct. As Pitchfork points out, during a news broadcast for NY’s PIX 11 on Friday that covered the arrest, Erykah Badu appeared in the background and then tried to lean in and kiss news reporter Mario Diaz. At first, Badu denied that it was her but then tweeted yesterday at the reporter “sorry Mario. :-)))).” Watch the truly bizarre video and read some Twitter exchanges between the singer and Diaz below.
