WASHINGTON, January 26, 2017 – After a post-Inaugural week of foul-mouthed, anti-Trump demonstrations and insanity dominated by virtue-signaling entertainment elites who’ve gone psychotic, at least one of them will be facing some real-world consequences.

In the midst of his announced 4-year long, “perpetual” anti-Trump performance “art project” outside a New York City museum, Hollywood bad-boy Shia LaBeouf was caught on camera assaulting a passerby whose comments apparently irritated the actor. According to Fox News,

“Police said LaBeouf pulled the scarf of a 25-year-old man outside the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, scratching his face in the process. They said he also pushed the man, who refused medical attention.

“The tussle happened on the seventh day of a livestream that LaBeouf and two collaborators intend to have running 24 hours a day for the next four years.

“They have invited the public to repeat the phrase ‘He will not divide us,’ into a camera mounted on an outdoor wall.”

In the YouTube video below, LaBeouf actually seems to have pushed or punched the unidentified man.

The actor—already regarded as difficult if not impossible to handle on set by an increasing number of Hollywood directors—was booked on a misdemeanor assault charge, and “…was released on his own recognizance from the 114th Precinct around 3:45 a.m. Thursday,” according to the New York Post, which also reported that “An ebullient LaBeouf walked out the rear of the precinct shouting ‘he will not divide us,’ to a handful of waiting fans.”

LaBeouf is scheduled to appear in court on the misdemeanor assault charge on April 4, 2017. He has already returned to his live stream perpetual demonstration.
