Shia LaBeouf’s 4 year protest exhibit cut VERY short when museum dumps it over nasty behavior

What was to be a four-year anti-Trump museum exhibit by actor Shia LaBeouf didn’t make it four weeks into the Trump presidency.

LaBeouf began his “He Will Not Divide Us” exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York on Inauguration Day but the exhibit has become a “flashpoint for violence” and was shuttered by the museum, The New York Times reported.

The exhibit asked people to stand in front of a live streaming camera and say the phrase “He will not divide us.”

Only days after the exhibit opened, LaBeouf did some dividing of his own when he attacked a supporter of President Donald Trump and was apprehended by police.

The museum mentioned that incident, as well as “dozens of threats of violence and numerous arrests,” in explaining why it chose to close the exhibit.

“The installation had become a flash point for violence and was disrupted from its original intent,” it said.

The museum said the exhibit “deteriorated markedly after one of the artists was arrested on the site of the installation and ultimately necessitated.”

It was also unhappy that police “felt compelled to be stationed outside the installation 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

The website for exhibit now shows the phrase “The museum has abandoned us,” in white letters against a black background.

“On February 10, 2017, the Museum of the Moving Image abandoned the project. The artists, however, have not,” it read.
