It’s awesome how Shia LaBeouf is fighting for his own belief, but many have contradicted this idea.  In Ginia Bellafante’s article, “Shia LaBeouf and the Pitfalls of Celebrity Activism”, from the New York Times, she says, “Hollywood, for the most part, has positioned itself as one of Donald J. Trump’s chief institutional antagonists, and yet only a nation that had fully absorbed the values of show business could have elected him president”.  Ironic isn’t it?  He was arrested for this act of activism, and it was kind of sad.  Trump’s presidency has affected so many people even celebrities.  It has come to the point where our country has been put into the hands of an amateur, and the stars have finally stepped in to make a difference.
