America no longer safe for Shia LaBeouf’s art

Having been driven from New York, New Mexico, and an insufficiently undisclosed location in Tennessee, Shia LaBeouf, Nastja Säde Rönkkö, and Luke Turner’s “He Will Not Divide Us” is splitting for England. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the anti-Trump art project is putting an ocean between itself, the president, and the Trump supporters who’ve turned hounding LaBeouf’s flag-and-webcam set-up into a weirdly passionate artistic endeavor of their own.

“Events have shown that America is simply not safe enough for this artwork to exist,” LaBeouf, Rönkkö, and Turner said in a statement announcing the project’s “adoption” by the U.K.-based Foundation For Art And Creative Technology. The museum will host a flagpole flying a flag declaring “He will not divide us” that will stay streaming on a web site for the next four years, or at lest until right-wing extremist trolls pool their cash to take their game of anti-LaBeouf capture the flag international.
