‘Succession’ Star James Cromwell Superglues His Hand To A Starbucks Countertop During PETA Vegan Milk Upcharge Protest

“Succession” star and PETA Honorary Director James Cromwell is taking a stand against Starbucks.

The actor, 82, superglued his hand to a Starbucks counter in Midtown Manhattan, New York City during a PETA protest because the coffee company continues to charge extra for vegan milk in its lattes.

Police eventually arrived and temporarily shut down the store.

“My friends at PETA and I are calling on Starbucks to stop punishing kind and environmentally conscious customers for choosing plant milks,” Cromwell, who was dressed in a “Free the Animals” T-shirt, said. “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.”

Protesters insisted dairy milk was not only bad for the planet, but also incredibly bad for the animals.

According to Page Six, after the police got to the store, Cromwell used a knife to detach his hand from the countertop so he wouldn’t be arrested.

Cromwell isn’t the first star to bring up Starbucks charging for vegan milk, with Alan Cumming sending a powerful letter to Starbucks Canada in February 2021.
