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. Confidential" actor
superglued himself to the counter before delivering a statement about the
company's surcharge for vegan milk options and its impact on both the
environment and on communities of color.

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 than white Americans do -- but also because he felt that those who chose
vegan options as a matter of conscience were being penalized for making a
moral choice.

"When will you stop raking in huge profits while customers, animals and the
environment suffer?" Cromwell asked, arguing that in order to provide the
dairy products used at Starbucks, animals were subjected to "violence." "When
will you stop penalizing people for their ethnicities, their morals?

The protest concluded with a chant: "Save the planet, save the cows. Stop the
vegan upcharge now!"

Cromwell and one other PETA activist -- who had also glued himself to the
counter -- unattached themselves without incident about 30 minutes later. The
report did not indicate whether any charges were filed, although a similar
protest at the company's Seattle headquarters had led to the arrest of two
protesters.

Legendary musician Paul McCartney has also called on Starbucks to end the
surcharge for plant-based milks, although he opted to write a letter rather
than glue himself to a cafe counter.

"It recently came to my attention that Starbucks in the USA has an extra
charge for plant-based milks as opposed to cow's milk," McCartney wrote
earlier this year. "I must say this surprised me as I understand that in
other countries like U.K. and India, there is the same charge for both types
of milk and I would like to politely request that you consider this policy
also in Starbucks USA. My friends at PETA are campaigning for this to happen
... I sincerely hope that for the future of the planet and animal welfare you
are able to implement this policy."

Jeezus, I never knew Zefram Cochrane was such a complete nutbag.

This doesn't seem like super-glue so much as just something mildly
sticky if people can just attach and unattach themselves at will.

Cromwell has always been one of the stupidest and most useless people on
the planet.

I think he misspelled “retarded“

Yep. Retarded.

I always have. He used his podium when advertising first contact to tell
the audience “we must not eat our animal friends”

He’s been mentally ill going back at least as far as BABE

It would’ve been nice if they pulled their arms up and taken all the skin
off

I recognized him but had to look him up in IMDB to figure out why.

I figured someone used a fire hatchet to free him or he had the foresight to
carry a small bottle of solvent, but you reminded me of the moron who tried to
superglue herself to a basketball court during a game. Judging by the news
footage, she either wasn't using superglue or didn't know how to us it properly.

That's because he was an imposter.

The *real* Zephram was Glenn Corbett. ;)

Nyssa, who never heard any reports of Corbett gluing
himself to any counters

If he hadn’t died, Corbett in his old age would’ve been perfect to play
Zephram Cochran from earlier in history.
