Accuracy in Media

From the LA Times:

Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump protest piece has been shut down because it created an unexpectedly volatile situation and serious public safety hazards, museum officials said Friday.

The embattled actor’s HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US installation at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image debuted on President’s Trump inauguration day and was meant to run through the duration of his presidency. The around-the-clock streaming performance invited willing participants to chant the words “he will not divide us” in front of a webcam as many times and for as long as they wished.

However, a few days after its debut,  LaBeouf was arrested  after he shouted down an alleged white supremacist who arrived to troll the work and other such incidents prompted the museum to cut off the installation’s webcam.
