The Bernie Sanders campaign rally Sunday in Carson City included topless protestors.

One woman ran onto the stage, described herself as Sanders’ biggest supporter, grabbed a microphone and then denounced the dairy industry.

At the most recent Academy Awards, Joaquin Phoenix denounced artificial insemination of cows and the use of cow milk.

Other women walked onto the stage and at least three of them were also topless. Protestors dumped liquids on the stage. Sanders left the stage.

The crowd generally booed the protestors and started chanting “Bernie! Bernie!”

Three were arrested for gross misdemeanor indecent exposure and each has a $2,500 bail: Rachel Christina Ziegler, 27, and Carla Marisa Cabral, 48, both of Oakland, Calif., and Audrey Claire Rees, 19, of San Diego, Calif.
