The right was splintered somewhat with the election of Donald Trump. Lot’s of warring factions. Not unlike the great Toilet Paper Roll Direction Debate. But if we’ve been able to come together on anything other that Neil Gorsuch and liberal tears, it’s mocking Shia LaBeouf (see Perpetual Whiner Shia LaBeouf Has Drunken MELTDOWN… Over French Fries and Shia’s Secret ‘#HeWillNotDivideUs’ Camera Found. Flag Replaced With MAGA Hat). And Shia’s new “art” project? Yeah, it’s already been exposed by 4Chan.
My hat is tipped in Heat Street’s direction for this…
After numerous defeats to his #HeWillNotDivideUs project, Shia LaBeouf and his art collective launched a new project, #AloneTogether. The three artists are holed up in three separate cabins in the laplands, an arctic region in northern Finland. Their faces are livestreamed into the Kiasma museum in Helsinki, where museum-goers can communicate with the trio.
LaBeouf’s mortal enemies, the users of various online message boards like 4chan, 8chan and Ylilauta (Finnish 4chan) are dead set on finding these remote cabins and trolling the Transformers star.
Brief note: sometimes I believe the internet to be nothing more than the Star Wars Cantina in Mos Eisley. And this story isn’t disproving it, but Greedo got what was coming to him.
And it seems like they may have accomplished the task in less than 24 hours. While no one has actually confirmed the cabin location, users on 4chan /pol/ appear to have compiled compelling evidence of Labeouf’s location.
Serious, if Dubya had only hired 4Chan to find Bin Laden…
You almost feel bad for Shia LaBeouf. I mean, not really, because he’s a douchlord. But almost.
Shia wanted to prove a point with his “He will not divide us” malarkey, and he did. Just not as he expected. Instead of uniting the masses against Trump, Shia united the masses… against Shia. It’s a double secret irony I can get behind with the full heft of a fat pride feminist. Who wants donuts?
Shia has become the prey of 4Chan and other stalwart internet trolls, in need of a good hunt. The more Shia keeps running and playing his little game, the more the trolls will double down, up their weaponry, and stalk him for the kill.
To be clear, the hunting of Shia as if he’s Bambi’s mom is but a metaphor. I’m not suggesting Shia be gutted like a suckling pig at a luau. It’s a metaphor! METAPHOR!
But here is an actual hijacking of his feed. We’d like to think we got the troll game started. You’re welcome, internet.
