Shia LaBeouf's anti-Trump museum exhibit is shut down after becoming a 'flashpoint for violence'

Shia LaBeouf's four-year anti-Trump exhibit has been shut down three weeks into its launch after museum officials said the installation had become a 'flashpoint for violence.'

A live webcam was mounted on the wall outside of the Museum of Moving Images in Queens, New York, last month as part of LaBeouf's 'He Will Not Divide Us' campaign against Donald Trump.

The camera began running 24/7 after Inauguration Day and was set to run until the end of the president's term.

LaBeouf himself appeared in front of the camera throughout January and several times clashed with protesters opposing the project. 

The 30-year-old actor was even arrested in January after an alleged physical altercation with a protester.

According to local reports, the protester had said something to the camera that LaBeouf did not agree with. The actor was taken to the 114th Precinct Queens.

LaBeouf also tried to punch a man who was holding a 'Pepe 2020' sign in front of the camera.
