“Biden’s ties to the dairy industry and indifference to the suffering of farmed animals — something he basically never talks about — flies in the face of everything he claims to stand for,” a spokesperson from Direct Action Everywhere said in a statement Tuesday. “We’re asking him to stand with animal rights advocates, environmental activists, and ordinary citizens — and against the inherent violence of the dairy industry.”
The protesters interrupted Biden’s remarks after early Super Tuesday victories in states like Alabama, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina and Oklahoma.
A spokesperson for the Biden campaign was not immediately available for comment in response to the protest.
Symone Sanders tweeted that she “broke a nail” after she was identified as tackling one of the protesters in video of Biden’s speech shared on Twitter.
I broke a nail. #SuperTuesday
