Succession Actor James Cromwell Just Super-Glued Himself To A Starbucks Counter Because He Thinks The Cost Of Vegan Milk Is Too High
Source - James Cromwell, "Succession" actor and honorary director of PETA, superglued himself to a Starbucks counter in New York City on Tuesday. Cromwell glued his hand to the counter at a Midtown, Manhattan location to call on Starbucks to stop charging extra for vegan milk.
PETA, which stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, live-streamed the "glue-in" on Facebook. The video shows several other protesters holding signs and chanting "save the planet, save the cows." Police officers showed up and asked the demonstrators to disperse.
Cromwell and another man, however, appeared to have stayed inside longer than other protesters, their hands stuck to the counter near the cash registers.
They eventually freed their hands from the glue, as police officers watched.
You know what this is? Boredom. Boredom from a man who is apparently just as big of an asshole in real life as he is on Succession. I mean imagine the gall it takes to glue yourself to a Starbucks counter as a multi-millionaire because you're upset at the price of vegan milk? It's insane. Here's what he had to say on the situation...
"My friends at PETA and I are calling on Starbucks to stop punishing kind and environmentally conscious customers for choosing plant milks," Cromwell said in a statement. "We all have a stake in the life-and-death matter of the climate catastrophe, and Starbucks should do its part by ending its vegan upcharge."
I'm not sure why he cares about climate change considering he's 82-years-old, but that's beside the point. If I were him I'd spend whatever years I have left with my grandchildren, enjoying the moment, not sitting on the counter of a coffee shop ruining the day of minimum wage workers. Also, NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE, James. The reason vegan milk is more expensive is because it costs Starbucks more to buy. It's called economics, brah. Naturally PETA was thrilled but I'm not going to get into that considering they're all batshit crazy. That's all I have for this one. Oh and for the record, I still love Succession.
