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.”
