As more people learned of the exhibit, more trolls showed up to crash it. Eventually it got so bad that LeBeouf had to relocate the exhibit to Albuquerque, NM. After a few days the same thing began happening there. People would randomly come up to the exhibit to scream random things into the live stream. LeBeouf finally had enough and relocated his live stream to an “undisclosed location.”
Shia LaBeouf moved his anti-Trump protest to an “undisclosed location” & trolls GLADLY accepted the challenge 😆😂😂pic.twitter.com/EhhaTuk97a

Users on 4chan began comparing flight paths, star charts, and many other things to try to discover the location of the flag. Eventually a picture of Shia LeBeouf in a restaurant in Greenville, Tennessee surfaced online. A 4chan member drove to this location and began driving around while honking his horn. When the users watching the live stream of the flag heard the horn they immediately located the flag. The flag was taken down and replaced with a “Make America great again” hat.
Shia LeBeouf finally admitted defeat and turned the live stream off. It is unknown at this time if he intends to relocate it and turn it back on.Source: Western Journalism
