Just days after launching a 24/7 livestream protest, Shia LeBeouf is being watched by the NYPD after a fight nearly broke out on camera (video below).
LeBeouf has launched a live-streaming protest of President Donald Trump, which he reportedly plans to continue for Trump's entire four-year term. The protest features LeBeouf leading group chants of: "He will not divide us."
According to the New York Daily News, trouble began at the protest when, on Jan. 22, an alleged white supremacist came on screen and said "14," a phrase used by white supremacists to represent the 14 words of their slogan, "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."
The unidentified man, in a suit and gray hat, also tried to recite the 14 words, but was cut off when LeBeouf screamed in his ear, "He will not divide us."
LeBeouf then followed the alleged supremacist, continuously screaming, "He will not divide us," into his ear until the man leaves.
Now, according to TMZ, because LeBeouf came close to becoming physical with a counter-protestor, the NYPD appears to be closely watching the actor's protest to ensure that no violence breaks out. A white NYPD van was reportedly spotted at the scene of the livestream on Jan. 23.
Police told TMZ that they plan to watch the protest for some time.
LeBeouf's protest was launched on Inauguration Day outside of the Museum of the Moving Image. The actor reportedly plans to continue the protest for four years, or for the length of Trump's presidency.
"The public is invited to deliver the words "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US" into a camera mounted on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image, New York, repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish," artists Luke Turner and Nastja Sade Ronkko said in a statement about the protest.
