Another woman interrupts NBA game to protest animal abuse

During Tuesday’s Clippers game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the game was briefly interrupted by a woman who managed to make it onto the field. She then attempted to glue herself to court before eventually being escorted out by security.

The woman wore a shirt that read, “Glenn Taylor roasts live animals.”

The jersey referenced former Timberwolves owner Glenn Taylor, who sold the team to former MLB All-Star Alex Rodriguez and a business associate last year.

Taylor owns a chicken farm in Minnesota, where millions of birds were killed last week due to an outbreak of bird flu.

During the Timberwolves’ first-round playoff game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday, another woman took to the field at the FedEx Center in Memphis.

This time however, the woman chained herself to the basket.

Both protesters are part of the same animal rights group, Direct Action Everywhere.

The group eventually calls on Taylor to step down from his role at the factory farm which the organization says slaughtered more than 5 million chickens due to bird flu.
