Actor and performance artist Shia LaBeouf has taken down his anti-Donald Trump “He Will Not Divide Us” live stream project after gunshots were reported in the area near the exhibit.
“We have taken the stream down after shots were reported in the area. The safety of everybody participating in our project is paramount,” LaBeouf tweeted to his half-million Twitter followers early Thursday morning.
LaBeouf initially launched his four-year-long live stream at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, New York, hours before Trump was sworn in as America’s 45th President.
The concept of the project was to have museum patrons stand in front of a camera placed on a wall, which had the phrase “He Will Not Divide Us” written on it. The camera was initially intended to record participants — and the Transformers star — shouting the five-word phrase into the camera 24 hours a day for the remainder of Trump’s term in office.
