(Newser) – Shia LaBeouf's "He Will Not Divide Us" project was supposed to be livestreamed for the duration of Donald Trump's presidency, meaning a minimum of four years. Instead, on Friday, 3 weeks into said presidency, the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens announced that it was shutting the project down, Page Six reports. LaBeouf had confronted a white supremacist on the livestream and even got himself arrested for another confrontation, but those weren't the only problems.

TMZ reports there were other physical altercations, and the NYPD had started patrolling the area regularly. The department said there were "numerous arrests" related to the project. Locals had also complained about noise, drug use, and public urination from guests who came to ogle the "He Will Not Divide Us" painted on the museum's wall where the camera was mounted. In the space where the livestream used to be on the project's website, it now simply says, "THE MUSEUM HAS ABANDONED US." The next presidential inauguration occurs 1,440 days from today.
