Hollywood Elites Attack Kyle Rittenhouse
Left-wing Hollywood celebrities and elites are piling on Kyle Rittenhouse after the 18-year-old on trial in Kenosha, Wisconsin, broke down on the witness stand Wednesday — calling him a “terrible fucking actor” and claiming he is benefitting from white male “privilege.”
They are also attacking Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder for repeatedly admonishing the prosecution, claiming he is biased and even “deplorable.”
Stars including Dave Bautista, George Takei, Rosanna Arquette, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Bravo’s Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi have taken swipes at the 18-year-old defendant during his trial for the murder of two people during last year’s Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“Fuck that kid!” Bautista tweeted.
“Kyle Rittenhouse is a murderer. The End,” Arquette proclaimed.
“A deplorable example, indeed,” Takei said of Judge Schroeder.
Rittenhouse’s lawyers have argued he acted in self-defense when he shot and killed two men, then wounded another last year while he was defending businesses in Kenosha from BLM rioters. Gaige Grosskreutz, a witness for the prosecution, admitted under oath that Rittenhouse only shot him when he pointed a pistol at the teen and advanced toward him.
As the trial appeared to overwhelmingly favor Rittenhouse, celebrities have shifted into overdrive, attempting to sway public opinion that Rittenhouse is a “murderer.”
Warner Bros.’ Dune actor Dave Bautista tweeted, “Like I said. Fuck that kid!” The actor was responding to a photo allegedly showing Rittenhouse making an “OK” sign with his hand, which leftists believe is a white supremacy signal — even as this interpretation has long been known as a hoax meme seeded by 4chan trolls.
Actress Rosanna Arquette, who once compared U.S. law enforcement to the “Gestapo,” called Rittenhouse a “murderer.”
Star Trek veteran George Takei called Judge Schroeder “deplorable.”
AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead guest star Kevin Zegers accused Rittenhouse of faking his breakdown on the witness stand.
In a since-deleted tweet, Epix’s Godfather of Harlem star Vincent D’Onofrio echoed Kevin Zeger’s claim that Rittenhouse was fake-crying. “Personally I’ve never seen acting like that from you but yes some less experienced actors,” D’Onofrio quipped.
Bravo’s Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi snarked that America needs to redefine what it means to be a “promising young man.”
Universal’s The Fast and the Furious actor Chad Lindberg called Rittenhouse a “murderer” and a “terrible fucking actor.”
Actress Katy Stoll also called Rittenhouse a “murderer.”
Comedian and actor Gianmarco Soresi also accused Rittenhouse of bad acting.
Comedian Brian Guest saw a nefarious meaning Judge Schroeder’s ringtone, based on unconfirmed suspicions that it is the Lee Greenwood song “I’m Proud to Be an American.”
