Those Nutty Anti-Semites Are Still Messing With Shia LaBeouf’s Latest Art Project

It wasn’t enough to drive “He Will Not Divide Us” — Shia LaBeouf’s webcam-narcissist bait and incidental political protest — out of Queens, Albuquerque, rural Tennessee, and finally England. Now hewillnotdivide.us has gone dark, possibly for good, and yet the alt-right 4chan kids are still messing with it. Apparently they don’t think Shia has gotten the point that they really don’t like him.

Erin Jensen, USA Today:

On Monday morning, Twitter users noted that the website for actor Shia LaBeouf’s performance art protest had seemingly been compromised…

A black screen with white text that read “14/88 #JEWSWILLNOTDIVIDE.US coming in 2018 by Shia Labeouf” served as the home page for the hacked website.

“1488” is clever white-power code for “I wish I could go back in time and fellate Hitler,” and “#JEWSWILLNOTDIVIDE.US” is self-explanatory.

As with the rest of this alt-right crap, I assume it’s made up of a little bit of hipster racism and a lot of actual racism. At first it’s just funny to say horrible things to make people angry, but eventually these guys start believing it. That’s why they’re still doing it, even after their target has surrendered.

Look, kids, you won. You got Shia LaBeouf to shut up. Now you’re starting to make us sympathetic toward him. How much of an asshole do you have to be to make people side with Shia LaBeouf?
