Shia LaBeouf Confronts White Supremacist on Livestream

"He will not divide us" isn't the only phrase recorded on Shia LeBeouf's livestream outside New York's Museum of the Moving Image. As a crowd chanted the phrase to the webcam on Sunday, a man came into view yelling "1488," which the Anti-Defamation League describes as "a general endorsement of white supremacy," per Slate. LeBeouf then entered the frame himself, repeatedly screaming "He will not divide us" in the man's ear, reports Mediaite. In a more positive encounter at the installation, a woman said she got out of bed and traveled to the museum from Brooklyn after seeing a lone man speaking on the livestream. "You were so vigilant and I wanted to come and give you a hug," she told him. (More Shia LaBeouf stories.)
