Actor Shia Labeouf has made a point of resisting President Donald Trump through art. As Trump was inaugurated on Friday, Jan. 20, LaBeouf started a four-year livestream in protest, titled “HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US.”
The installation is set up outside the New York Museum of the Moving Image, where participants can share the words “he will not divide us” into the camera. It will be a continuous livestream for at least the next four years.
However, when a white supremacist showed up and attempted to co-opt the livestream, LaBeouf reacted by shouting him down until he fled. The man appears at the beginning of the video, where he says “14,” a rallying call to white supremacists, into the webcam.
The number “14” is also known as “fourteen words,” or the slogan, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children,” coined by David Lane who was a member of The Order, an American white supremacist terrorist organization.
In the video, LaBeouf follows the man around and continues shouting “He will not divide us.” At one point, the two are aggressively in each other’s faces as LaBeouf continues yelling “He will not divide us” in the face of the other man, who eventually leaves the scene.
See the video below, which was shared to the “He will not divide us” official Twitter account.
