The internet took down Shia LaBouef in the BEST troll ever
DISCLAIMER: A few of the trolls were reportedly genuine Trump supporters... But when people mess with Shia LaBeouf, no matter who they are.. it’s always a little bit funny.
Anywaaaay. The story goes down like this:
When Trump got elected, Shia LaBeouf was pretty pissed. Well, more actively pissed than your average outraged American.
He launched his ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ project in Queens, New York. This was a 24-hour live stream protesting the elected president.
You may remember him screaming in the face of a Trump supporter here. No? Doesn’t ring any bells? Well, here’s a friendly reminder:
The protest promptly got moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico due to violence concerns.
Really? Everything, seemed so chill LaBeouf..
Then, within a week of relocating, the live stream was taken down “after shots were reported in the area.”
This still didn’t deter the actor-turned-political-activist, who set up a third stream in a top secret location.
Oh shit, the internet loves messing with you Shia La Bouef… And when you set 4chan a challenge, you should know by now, they’ll bite.
So, this is when shit gets crazy. By using the planes that appeared in the sky of Shia La Bouef’s secret political/art project, a 4channer managed to work out the approximate location of the stream, through triangulating flight paths.
Yes. 4chan was so determined to troll Shia La Bouef. They CROSS TRIANGULATED FLIGHT PATHS ACROSS THE ENITRE CONTINENT OF AMERICA.
They figured out the stream was in Greenville, South Carolina. However this triangulation action did not nail down the EXACT location.
They turned to the stars.
Then they sent a locally based 4channer out and about, who drove around the area in a truck, honking, to see if they could be heard on the live stream - this eventually led to the secret stream location being found.
The honking 4channer stole the ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ flag and replaced it with a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and T-shirt.
That dedication takes trolling to a whole new level. Outstanding effort.
Sorry about it Shia LaBouef.
