The Daily Show's Olivia Munn joined around 100 protestors Wednesday night to bring attention to the treatment of elephants at the circus, specifically Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey, which is performing in downtown Los Angeles through Sunday.

“When you look at something like the circus and everyone’s laughing and there’s color and there’s music and everything seems so great," said Munn, "but when you go right behind that door and they’re in these crates all day long and then they’re getting shocked and beat just so they can get up and dance around on a ball … it was just so sickening.”
