An infamous display iconized by actor Shia LaBeouf which began after President Donald Trump’s inauguration has been officially shut down due to the scene becoming “a flashpoint for violence.”
The unique performance art exhibit open to the public maintained the slogan, “He will not divide us” into a camera that was mounted on the outside of the Museum of the Moving Image in New York.
The transformer series star was recently arrested after an altercation with a neo-Nazi at the site, which police began patrolling frequently.
The actor was disappointed and took to Twitter to criticize the museum for deciding to close the exhibit.
On Twitter, LaBeouf uploaded an image of the live stream which instead now reads, “The museum has abandoned us.”
LaBeouf is the co-founder of the project, which launched on January 20th, the day of Trump’s inauguration, along with Luke Turner and Nastja Ronkko, fellow artists.
The live-stream was set to run all day, every day, and the collaborators originally expected to upkeep the site throughout the duration of Trump’s presidency.
However, early January 26th, LaBeouf was arrested on charges of assault and harassment after an altercation with a man wearing a Nazi-related hat which was broadcasted on the live-stream.
The New York Daily News made several reports of white supremacist appearances at the exhibit throughout the prior three weeks, including one wearing a Nazi hat which was the man LaBeouf had a confrontation with.
