How online trolls pursued an outspoken Hollywood star to Finland

Outspoken Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf has been the target of trolls – congregating on anonymous websites – ever since his anti-Trump performance art project began in January.

For his latest art installation, he’s alone in a cabin in Lapland, with only one line of communication to the outside world – the Kiasma Museum in Helsinki.

But that still hasn’t stopped the trolls, as BBC Trending witnessed first-hand.

    trolls at 4/8chan/reddit are guys who just can't get laid. they hide behind the "lols" – anonymous, dweeby and pathetic – and direct their blue-balled anger at those like labeouf cuz he actually catches pussy. and his political activism guarantees more pussy. so they can't fucking stand it. i bet they watch his music videos and cry.

    So… they're trying to find a single cabin. In Lapland. I don't know what to say. LAPLAND IS NOT SMALL, YOU KNOW? And the population density is abysmal, too.

    Only the BBC would try and paint a violent, rich guy who has been charged with multiple assaults (including on his own fans) as a martyr! Yet they expect our generation to support the blatant propaganda they publish? This is why less than 25% of young people trust the MSM
