Actor Shia LaBeouf, along with his friends Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner opened their latest artistic project on Friday, to coincide with Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The live stream will continue for an impressive four years and was installed outside the New York Museum of the Moving Image. The art piece is titled 'HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US’, and it was set up to protest the President of the United States.
On Sunday, protesters joined LaBeouf at the installation and chanted: ‘He will not divide us’
At some point during the protest / art piece, a young man appeared and said ‘14’ into the camera.
The number 14 is used by white supremacists to reference the Fourteen Words – one of their most famous slogans.
LaBeouf responded by shouting the mantra ‘He will not divide us’ into the man’s face.
The man continues, by saying "We must secure the existence of the white people” and "Praise kek”, a 4chan reference often used in conjunction with support of Donald Trump, before the rest of his words are drowned out by LaBeouf.
The clip, which has been shared over 2,000 times on Twitter, has received mixed reactions.
Some praised LaBeouf:
Others criticised LaBeouf's tactics:
One or two are even calling the white supremacist, nothing more than an "actor"
The man eventually left, then returned briefly in a final attempt to shout something unintelligible into the camera, before fleeing.
