Shia LeBeouf's new music video has sparked a major paedophile debate. The 28-year-old actor features in singer Sia's new track "Elastic Heart," where he is seen wrestling and fighting with a 12-year-old girl. The girl in the video is the "Dance Moms" star Maddie Ziegler and is seen doing crazy antics with LeBeouf in a cage. The two are dressed in bare minimum clothes as they can be seen jumping on each other and climbing up the cage. In one of the scenes, Ziegler is seen seductively throwing herself on the floor while in another LeBeouf is playing with her hair as the two lie on the ground. The two can be seen showing off their animal instincts in the video. After the video clip was released, many Twitter users slammed it for its inappropriate content. They called it "disgusting" and "gross." Here are some Twitter reactions.

Sia reportedly did not expect a negative reaction to her music video clip as she did not have any intention to "hurt" people with the theme of her video. "All I can say is Maddie and Shia are two of the only actors I felt could play these two warring 'Sia' self-states. I apologize to those who feel triggered by Elastic Heart, my intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody," she stated according to Mirror.
