Shia Labeouf Shuts Down Anti-Trump Livestream…Again…After Reports of Gunfire

He Will Not Divide Us — a livestream project initiated by Shia LaBeouf in response to President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January — has encountered yet another roadblock after gunfire was reported in the area of its second location in New Mexico.

This morning (February 23), LaBeouf tweeted that shots were reported in the area of the livestream’s new Albuquerque location at the El Rey Theater. The original project was unveiled at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City on January 20, but the museum shut it down on February 10 after it noted in a statement “The installation created a serious and ongoing public safety hazard for the museum, its visitors, its staff, local residents and businesses…it deteriorated markedly after one of the artists was arrested at the site of the installation.”

In the days leading up to its New York City closure, the livestream was host to heated arguments between peaceful observers and Nazi sympathizers, who used the video as a platform to loudly issue hateful rhetoric.

“We have taken the stream down after shots were reported in the area. The safety of everybody participating in our project is paramount,” LaBeouf noted in a tweet to disappointed response from followers. “incredible that something intended to unify could have an adverse effect, try not to blame yourself Shia. I mean that,” one wrote. Another noted: “If safety for everybody is paramount perhaps you should take down the government.”

He Will Not Divide us initially aimed to unify Americans who felt victimized by Trump’s campaigning, which has so far targeted immigrant communities, women and members of the LGBT community. The project encouraged passersby to declare “He will not divide us” into a live camera feed.
