Shia LaBeouf’s #HeWillNotDivideUs Includes Showdown With White Supremacist
Shia LaBeouf's #HeWillNotDivideUs, a four-year-long livestream through which the actor's encouraging New York City to stand in solidarity against President Donald Trump, has already drummed up some serious controversy.
LaBeouf, who unveiled the project on Trump's January 20 inauguration date outside of New York’s Museum of the Moving Image, has already drawn many contributors who have shouted their battle cries into the live stream's lens. One observer who quickly drew LaBeouf's ire, though, strayed from the mission, and began to offer the notorious "fourteen words" slogan coined by white supremacist David Lane.
LaBeouf didn't take the outlier's message in stride, though, and began following the man around and shouting "He will not divide us!" into his ear, proving that you don't necessarily have to punch a neo-Nazi to get your point across.
"People can talk about free speech all they like. If that Nazi spoke that trash in my presence I would have Harrison Ford’d him," one Twitter-user responded to the video.
#HeWillNotDivideUs outlined its mission as a collective protest upon the livestream's initial activation.
"…the mantra ‘HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US’ acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community," the site's mission reads.
