A white supremacist interrupts Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump livestream protest. Bad idea.
On the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration, Shia LaBeouf had an inauguration of his own. The actor unveiled the ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ project: a livestream installation described as ‘a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism’ in response to the new President of the United States.
‘He Will Not Divide Us’ is mounted outside the Museum of the Moving Image in New York. The project invites people who pass the installation to repeat the words ‘He will not divide us’ to anyone who may be watching the livestream.
Of course, the project already has its share of haters. During LaBeouf’s unveiling of the protest, a man approached the camera to shout the number ‘14’ – a reference to a white supremacist slogan: ‘We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children’.

The footage, which was shared instantly on the installation’s Twitter account, shows LaBeouf following the supremacist while shouting loudly and repeatedly ‘he will not divide us’.
At one point, LaBeouf and the supremacist faced off, and it looked like it might come to blows. But LaBeouf simply continued shouting until the neo-Nazi walked away.
The ‘14 words’ slogan was coined by David Lane, a member of The Order, a white supremacist revolutionary terrorist organisation active in the United States during the 1980s.
