A woman attempted to glue herself to the court during the Tuesday night NBA play-in game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The woman, who was promptly removed from the arena in Minnesota by security officials, was protesting alleged animal rights abuses at an egg farm owned by Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor.
Sideline reporter for the game Allie LaForce said that the woman was wearing a shirt that read “Glen Taylor Roasts Animals alive.”
According to a report from the Storm Lake Times Pilot, Rembrandt Enterprises killed more than 5.3 million chickens in Iowa after an avian flu outbreak. Rembrandt Enterprises is owned by Glen Taylor’s company Taylor Corporation.
Glen Taylor agreed to sell the Timberwolves franchise to Marc Lore and Alex Rodriguez in 2021, but the new owners are expected to pay in installments, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Lore and Rodriguez are expected to be “limited partners and then growing their percentage until they assume a controlling stake for the 2023-24 season.”
The Timberwolves franchise said in a statement on Twitter it had been “in touch with Target Center Security to address the incident,” but offered no further information.
