Woman Protests Animal Cruelty By Gluing Herself To NBA Court

It was difficult on court for the NBA play in game between the Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Los Angeles Clippers.

There was not a brawl among players, or any technical fouls that were thrown at Patrick Beverly (thrash-talking Timberwolves) guard. During the second quarter of the Timberwolves 109-104 win, a woman from the stands went underneath one of the hoops and superglued herself to the floor to protest for animal rights.

The female’s name is Alicia Santurio. She was an investigator at Direct Action Everywhere. uses “nonviolent direct action (and) community building to create revolutionary social (and) political change for animals.” Santurio glued herself to the floor because the organization got footage of an egg farm owned by Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor that showed that 5 million chickens were killed somewhat brutally. Santurino donned a shirt that read, “Glen Taylor roasts live animals” while she was having fun.

After getting Santurino unstuck, security arrived at Santurino. Clay Travis, Outkick founder, best summarised the legitimacy of the protest by tweeting that there might actually have been some legitimate reason for it.
