Oscar nominee James Cromwell superglued himself to a New York City Starbucks counter in protest of the fact that the company charges extra to use plant-based milk in drinks.
In a protest that was live-streamed to Facebook by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) activists, the “L.A.

Cromwell, who can be seen wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the words “free the animals,” argued that vegan milk options were better for the environment. He also claimed that charging more for them was discriminatory — particularly because minorities suffer from lactose intolerance at a higher rate
