A live stream of Shia LaBeouf chanting was disrupted by Nazi-themed dancing. Then things got weird. – The Washington Post

On the day of President Trump’s inauguration, two poorly understood forces of the Internet collided in a sort of bizarre death lock — a struggle that has manifested in the real world as Nazi-costumed dances in New York, a meticulously planned theft in rural Tennessee and last month, a raid on a British rooftop.

These forces are called 4chan and Shia LaBeouf.

Bret Easton Ellis wrote an interesting piece 6 years ago that mainly focused on Charlie Sheen’s pre HIV admission melt down. It is an entrainment piece about the entertainment world.
