Boss Freelancing During Office Hours

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about boss: we can clearly see him doing freelance/non-company-related work in his computer.

My department has been very busy this past few weeks and we asked our supervisor for help in some tasks. He told us angrily that he couldn’t help because he was too busy with his own work. While we were talking to him, we can clearly see him doing freelance/non-company-related work in his computer.

We are a graphics department so we know that those aren’t involved in any company materials, plus he confirmed that he’s doing it for his freelance business, the next day. We want to report it to HR but unfortunately he is friends with the whole department and even has some of the people there involved with the freelancing project. Meanwhile, he gives us responsibilities that we shouldn’t even be doing, like things with legal implications that he should be doing. What should we do? I hope you can answer and thanks.
