“Your move, Shia.”
Shia LaBeouf’s plan to keep his livestream protest of President Trump going for four years was foiled by trolls – again.
The 30-year-old actor had his “He Will Not Divide Us” art exhibit shut down in New York City and Albuquerque, NM following disruptions by protesters. LaBeouf even managed to get himself arrested after screaming at an alleged Trump supporter at the New York exhibit just days after the inauguration.
His livestream feed continued to get crashed by trolls leading him to move to a third location which he kept secret, according to Page Six. Here, the camera was set up only focused on a “He Will Not Divide Us” flag.
But some savvy sleuths managed to crack the code and troll LaBeouf again, with an epic move.
Users from 4chan “started studying planes flying over the flag, and took note of flight times” to find the third location. They even “studied the sun and star patterns behind the flag,” according to Page Six. When a picture of LaBeouf in a Tennessee diner surfaced, someone was dispatched to the area.
A 4chan user drove around honking the car horn trying to get the video stream to pick up the sound.
All their hard work paid off and the flag was discovered on Thursday. And taken down.
But the trolls were not done. While the camera picked up the live removal of the flag, it then captured a red “Make America Great Again” Trump hat being hoisted up the flagpole.
The live stream was turned off a short while later and on Friday, a photo of the flag that was allegedly taken from the pole was posted. The stream did return however only an empty flagpole is currently displayed.
