Actors Shia LaBeouf, Jaden Smith Lead ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ Protest at Queens Museum

On Inauguration Day, actor Shia LaBeouf led a group of teenagers with the chant: "He will not divide us."

Looking into a camera placed on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens, a diverse group of teenagers - some wearing backpacks - chanted the words on the day Donald Trump was named president in Washington, D.C.

Actor Jaden Smith, the son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, was also in the crowd and recited the five-word chant. At one point a man held a sign that read: "Abort Trump."

Luigi Vassallo of Astoria told NBC 4 New York, "He won't divide us as long as we do it this way." 

"We don't want to see people be divided by their race or gender or religious background," said Ben Potts of Yonkers. "There is an entire generation of people that don't feel that way."

The camera has been in place since 9 a.m. EST on Friday. A website for the movement says the camera will be available and will livestream for the next four years - 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
