On Inauguration Day last month, Shia LaBeouf and his partners in HIGH ARTISTRY launched their newest art project, which was supposed to: a) Bring the people together during these gross times and; b) Last for the next four years. Err, well, it brought people together in a “fist to face” sort of way, and they baaaarely missed their goal of lasting until 2021. Shia’s project “He Will Not Divide Us” got divided from the Museum of the Moving Image after not even four weeks.
Shia and his partners put a webcam on the wall outside of the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, NY and the plan was for people to chant, “He will not divide us,” in front of it. It was going to be live streamed on HeWillNotDivide.us until the end of Trump’s first term. But instead of just bringing out the hipster resistance, it also brought out the shit-stirring Nazi smegma stains. Shia got arrested last month for allegedly getting violent with one. And so today, Page Six says that the museum has pulled the plug on that webcam and has put an end to Shia’s protest project, because it’s become a “flashpoint for violence.” The museum said in a statement that the project has created a public safety hazard and not because Shia was always hanging around it and the musty crotch and pit fumes wafting off of him caused people to choke.
“The installation created a serious and ongoing public safety hazard for the museum, its visitors, its staff, local residents and businesses. While the installation began constructively, it deteriorated markedly after one of the artists was arrested at the site of the installation and ultimately necessitated this action.”
The neighborhood’s Community Board ended up complaining about the noise and wondered why the webcam couldn’t just be moved inside of the museum.
Shia and his art partners confirmed that the Museum of the Moving Image broke up with them by posting this on the project’s website:
They say that the museum has moved on, but the artists have not, so they’re probably looking for another home for it.
In Shia’s defense, his project lasted longer than I thought it would. I figured it’d shut down after people kept prying the cam off of the wall to sell it on eBay. But like I said in my first post about this, I was hoping it’d bring out the peens and I never once saw a dude flashing his dick on it. Why can’t we as a people just make dick pics, not war? A Tumblr titled “The Dicks Of He Will Not Divide Us” doesn’t and never existed, so I feel cheated, honestly.
