Climate activist glued bare feet to floor at US Open, causing delay in Coco Gauff match

Tennis player Coco Gauff's US Open semifinal match against Karolina Muchova was delayed thanks to a climate protester gluing his bare feet to the cement floor. Sorry, I had to laugh at this one. The guy paid for tickets just to glue his feet to the floor? Like, what? These type of protests have pretty much zero impact on anything and just annoy people more than they do anything positive. AP reported on the details, saying the following in a sports news article:

Gauff was leading 1-0 in the second set when play was halted. She would go on to win 6-4, 7-5... Security guards and, later, more than a half-dozen police officers went over to confront the protesters, who were wearing shirts that read, “End Fossil Fuels.” The U.S. Tennis Association said three of the protesters were escorted out of the stadium without further incident, but it took longer to remove the person who stuck his feet to the ground.
