Topless protesters – who are Bernie supporters – disrupted a speech by Senator Sanders in Nevada.
The anti-dairy protesters stormed the stage just as Sanders was beginning to address his supporters at the event on Sunday in Carson City.
First, a fully clothed woman jumped on the stage and grabbed the mic away from the candidate to deliver their demands.
‘Bernie, I’m your biggest supporter, and I’m here to ask you to stop pumping up the dairy industry and to stop pumping up animal agriculture,’ she said.
‘I believe in you…’ the protester continued before the mic suddenly went dead and security moved toward her. The campaign’s live video feed of the event suddenly cut out.
Meanwhile, other topless women stormed the stage and poured colored liquids over their bodies from containers marked ‘milk.’
They had the words ‘dairy’ and ‘die’ written across their nude torsos, with their bosoms fully displayed.
Bernie Sanders and his wife, Jane, stepped off to the side of the stage as the women carried on. Jane laughed in amusement as Sanders looked on in annoyance.
Security guards intervened and dragged the topless women off the stage.
Sanders quickly resumed his speech, shrugging off the bizarre protest.
‘This is Nevada. There’s always a little excitement — at no extra cost. Except we have a lot of water on the stage,’ he said as he returned to the stage.
It comes a week after actor Joaquin Phoenix used his Oscar acceptance speech to deliver a weird rant about the dairy industry.
‘We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and when she gives birth we steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable,’ the Joker star said at the ceremony last weekend.
‘And then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal,’ he said.
