It is utterly amazing how people are so worried about what people in Hollywood think about things.
Myself, I try to separate the actor from their political beliefs as much as humanly possible although there are a few that all of a sudden have been causing me to try my patience with that.
There are folks out there that have taken movies that they have loved for decades and stopped watching them all because of the fact that an actor that they enjoyed now has different political beliefs than they thought.
And, added to that there are some people that feel that no matter what, what’s right is right and if someone is incorrectly held on bail they should be let out as soon as possible…
Kyle Rittenhouse was set free after paying a $2 million bail on Friday and liberals lashed out on social media after it was revealed that former child star Ricky Schroder helped him foot the bill.
Rittenhouse was charged with two counts of murder from a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where he shot and killed Black Lives Matter protesters who were attacking him. He has said that he was acting in self defense.
Rittenhouse’s attorney Lin Wood posted a photo of his client and publicly thanked Schroder for helping him meet the bail.
Liberals and other critics of Rittenhouse took to Twitter to express their outrage that the former star of “Silver Spoons” would donate money to help the teen.
“Thanks to everyone who let a murdering child out to do it again?” tweeted liberal actress Bette Midler. “This boy killed 2 & gravely injured another. Why are you celebrating him? Anyone who owns #MyPillow should toss it immediately into the nearest landfill. And #RickySchroder? Who knew he could be so malevolent?”
“It’s amazing how these people like Ricky Schroder & Mike Lindell will proclaim to be pro-life, but turn around & bail out Kyle Rittenhouse who allegedly murdered two people advocating for Black people not being killed by cops. A true showcase in pure racism!” claimed CNN correspondent April Ryan.
“The @MyPillowUSA guy is just that bitch so him putting up money for Rittenhouse shouldn’t come as a surprise. BUT Ricky Schroeder?!?! The whole “Silver Spoons” connection? It’s like the most acerbic and ironic nod to white supremacy of 2020. Wow,” tweeted writer Raquel Cepeda.
“Scott Baio and now Ricky Schroeder? As a kid…I clearly made bad choices for celebrity crushes,” said Al-Jazeera contributor Richelle Carey.
“I saw Ricky Schroeder was trending and hoped it wasn’t because he’s a white supremacist but sadly my hopes were dashed,” said podcaster Kimberley Johnson.
