Actor-turned-activist Shia LaBeouf‘s anti-Trump livestream website was hacked Monday to display an anti-Semitic message on the first day of Passover.

LaBeouf’s site, “He Will Not Divide Us,” briefly read, “#JewsWillNotDivideUs” on Monday morning. Above the hashtag was the number 1488, a reference to white supremacy and neo-Nazism.

Beneath it were the words, “coming in 2018 by Shia LaBeouf.”

LaBeouf’s mother is Jewish and his father is Christian.

LaBeouf launched his page Jan. 20 — President Trump’s inauguration date — as an attempt to livestream his opposition for the duration of his presidency.

LaBeouf started the project by mounting a camera on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, and encouraged the public to stand in front of it, repeating the words “He will not divide us” as many times and for as long as they wished.

The exhibit was ousted from the museum in February after a series of violent incidents there, one involving the eccentric A-lister himself.

On Jan. 26, LaBeouf had gotten into a dispute with a 25-year-old Bronx fellow protester, in which he allegedly ripped the man’s scarf off before scratching his face and shoving him to the ground, police said. Assault and harassment charges against the “American Honey” star were dropped late last month.
The exhibit was relocated to New Mexico, where it was booted again after it was vandalized with spray paint and gunshots were fired in the area.

It was then moved to an undisclosed location before the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology in Liverpool, England, took it over.
