Actor James Cromwell glued his hands to a Starbucks counter Tuesday to protest the chain’s surcharge on vegan milk. The 82-year-old actor-activist is best known for his roles in “Babe,” “L.A. Confidential” and “The Green Mile.”
Cromwell, who is the honorary director of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is featured in a PETA video asking Starbucks to “stop charging more” for vegan milk.
“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 from PETA. “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.”
