Shia LaBeouf's four-year-long anti-Trump protest already is off to a rocky start just three days into the interactive installation. LaBeouf and his collaborators set up a camera outside of the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York, where civilians could repeat the words "he will not divide us" for as long as they would like. Footage will stream non-stop 24 hours a day, seven days a week for the next four years or until whenever Trump gets impeached.
However, it didn't take long for a neo-Nazi to try to monopolize the live stream with his own racist message. The alt-right member, wearing a grey hat and glasses, marches up to the camera and says "We must secure the existence of white people!" Before he could get more of his message across, LaBeouf stepped in.
Shia LaBeouf never strayed from his script as he screamed "he will not divide us" into the alt-right member's face along with the crowd. Eventually the white supremacist and the actor went chest-to-chest before a (very chill) security guard stepped in to break them up. Both men then disappear off camera, and the crowd watched them move to the back of the lot where the racist appears to have fled.
It's going to be a long four years. We can't help but feel that that won't be the weirdest thing that shows up on that live stream between now and 2020.
