Glue girl video: Girl’s protest in court during Timberwolves game.
During the Clippers and Timberwolves play-in Tuesday night, play was halted at the Target Center for what the broadcast thought was a fainting woman.
The truth, however, was stranger than originally thought, as a woman was apparently trying to glue herself to the floor in protest.
Given professional sports broadcasts now take great pains to not show antics from fans that will detract from the game itself, there isn’t much video to help the situation.
The in-game reporting wasn’t particularly helpful.
What was the purpose of gluing herself on floor? What kind of protest was this?
There are tons of questions in mind and definitely these questions have answers as well.
Some eagle-eyed Twitter users managed to pick out her shirt, which appears to read: “Glen Taylor (the Timberwolves owner) roasts animals alive.”
Direct Action Everywhere writes they led an investigation that “exposes the reality behind a recent mass killing of 5.3 million chickens following an outbreak of “highly pathogenic avian influenza” (HPAI).”
DAE claims “the mass killing happened at Rembrandt Enterprises, an Iowa factory egg farm owned by billionaire Glen Taylor.”
The Sporting News cannot independently verify Direct Action Everywhere’s claims.
It should be noted that Taylor sold his ownership stake in the Timberwolves in 2021 to Alex Rodriguez and billionaire investor Marc Lore. However, “Lore and Rodriguez are expected to buy the team in installments,” according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, “first becoming limited partners and then growing their percentage until they assume a controlling stake for the 2023-24 season.”
The woman, identified as Alicia Santurio, also tweeted after the incident.
