" America is not safe enough."

Claiming America is supposed "not safe" enough for his work, actor LaBeouf is moving again the location for his controversial anti-Donald Trump art installation.

The "He Will Not Divide Us" webcam exhibit has been adopted by the Liverpool-based Foundation for Art and Creative Technology ( FACT).

LaBeouf and other artists wrote in a statement that events have "shown that America is simply not safe enough" for their artwork to exist.

The project asks people to say "He will not divide us" into a wall-mounted camera and provides all-day-long live streaming. It started in Queens during the President's Inauguration Day and was intended to run throughout his presidency. The installation was shut down on February 10 at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria because it became a source of violence.

LaBeouf and others moved it to Albuquerque on February 18 but it was also taken out just a few days later because of vandalism and gunfire. On March 8, the installation was moved to an unknown location, but the artists continue to accuse others including far-right individuals and supposed white nationalists of creating " trouble" and making threats against them.

#HWNDU artists are blaming its critics including followers and supporters of 8chan of constant disruption. Followers of 8chan say they are also just expressing their views against #HWNDU.

Its critics say the #HWNDU is simply a failure and they should not be blamed for it being kicked out of the U.S.
