Hollywood stars sounded off on Twitter and many were angry Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all counts against him.
Kerry Washington tweeted “Elections matter. The lives of Joseph Rosenbaum & Anthony Huber mattered. They should be alive today. Our 1st amendment right to free speech should not cost any of us our lives. And regardless of anybody’s verdict anywhere and at anytime, Black Lives Do Matter. Today. & always”
Alyssa Milano wrote “F-ing NOT GUILTY”
Bette Midler wrote “#kylerittenhouse found not guilty tho we SAW HIM kill two. Fundamentally stupid, I predict he will go on to a big career on #Fox and in #RadicalRightWing circles, which counts as a plus with them. A tragic, tragic day for decent, THINKING, feeling, ethical people everywhere.
“And process this: if #Kyle had been a young black man accused of the same crimes, they wouldn’t even have waited for a trial, they would have LYNCHED HIM.”
Rob Reiner retweeted his daughter Romy who wrote “Finding Rittenhouse not guilty sends an encouraging message to other white men with access to guns with the same ideology. America’s white cloak is fitting perfectly.”
