In Memoriam: Shia LaBeouf's Beautiful, Gorgeous Rattail

RIP rattail. You had a good run.

Over the holiday weekend, American sweetheart and all-around DGAF icon Shia LaBeouf was out and about at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival. LaBeouf was there to promote his new film Man Down.

Noticeably absent from LaBeouf's head is his gloriously iconic rattail, which captured our hearts earlier this summer.

For some, the rattail was a beautiful nightmare.

But the rattail gave Shia strength.

How else would he be able to carry this heavy log?

That rattail was a symbol of freedom, it was a symbol of courage, it was a symbol of hope. But alas...

We can only hope that the rattail's absence was for something like a movie, or just to appease the olds who would never understand what a statement like that meant.

Where are you, rattail?!

Thankfully we have photos to pay homage to the thing that once was, Shia's rattail. RIP rattail. You'll be sorely missed.
