Bernadette Peters really cares about animals and shows it. The three-time Tony Award-winning Broadway star is known for starring in “Sunday in the Park with George,” “Song and Dance,” and “Annie Get Your Gun.” On July 10, she held her 24th annual Broadway Barks pet adoption event in New York City’s Shubert Alley.

Peters reacted to the protesters who showed up at her event. She and Mary Tyler Moore had helped start the charity behind the initiative in 1998.

In a video that was posted to Twitter, the 74-year-old actor criticised the protesters for interrupting her speech on stage.

“Excuse me! “You are making it impossible for any of these animals to be adopted,” she said as the crowd cheered.

“Is that not what you want?” she asked. before going on with what she was saying.

The person who posted the video on social media wrote in the post’s description, “How do we give Bernadette a Tony for fighting protesters at Broadway Barks?”

The activists who run the website theirturn.net and run the Animal Rights News Twitter account say that the protesters were speaking out against the Humane Society of New York. It’s not clear how or if the Humane Society has anything to do with Peters’ group.

As the video made its way around social media, many people liked how Peters dealt with the hecklers. One person seemed to agree with the original post because they said, “Give Bernadette another Tony for literally just being there.”

When another person asked what the protest was about, writer Jill Twiss joked, “Women who are 74 years old but still have perfect skin.”
