Protesters holding signs reading “Let Dairy Die” stormed the stage during Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s victory speech on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.

The protesters reportedly represent the anti-dairy group “Direct Action Everywhere,” a California-based animal rights group. Symone Sanders, Biden’s senior adviser, rushed on the stage and helped drag one of the protesters off and won praise online for her heroism. 

Biden was in the middle of celebrating his wins in seven of the 14 primaries on Super Tuesday — an unexpectedly strong outcome for a candidate who was struggling to break through in a crowded field of moderates before Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg dropped out this week.

The same group crashed the stage at a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders last month. 

“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,” one protester said. “I believe in you…” she added, before the mic cut out and security appeared to approach her on stage.
