A woman — who may be Alicia Santurio — attempted to glue herself to the basketball parquet at the Target Center on Tuesday night in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She was hurried off the court during a stoppage in play between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The woman claims that her stunt was due to Glen Taylor’s business. Taylor, who sold part of the team to e-commerce businessman Marc Lore and former MLB player Alex Rodriguez, also owns a farm.
“I superglued down to the basketball court to bring attention to the mass killings of chicks at Glen Taylor’s factory farm using VSD,” Santurio said in a Tweet.

Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) has sent out a press release. They claim they were behind the woman’s actions.

“Tuesday morning’s release of troubling footage from Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor’s factory egg farm has been followed up with a Tuesday evening protest broadcast to a national TV audience,” the release said. “A woman, Alicia Santurio, made her way onto the court during the second quarter of the game and tried to glue herself to the floor under the basket. Her shirt displayed the message, ‘Glen Taylor Roasts Animals Alive’ before security personnel pulled her away. Minutes later, TV commentator Kevin Harlan spoke to the national television audience, saying ‘We’ve been told it was a protest…. She glued herself.”
