'Silver Spoons' actor Ricky Schroder has shared a photo of himself holding a rifle alongside hate comments he received online for his financial help in the bail of Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse. The 50-year-old took to Twitter on Sunday, November 22, as he wrote above the pictures, “To my Democrat Friends. This is the country want to live in? #f*ckantifa”.



 

Rittenhouse allegedly shot dead 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, 26, in an August shooting after Jacob Blake was shot numerous times by the police. He is also accused of injuring Gaige Grosskreutz on August 25 during a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The 17-year-old said to the police that he fired bullets in self-defense. The teenager was released on a $2 million bond on Friday, November 20. 

According to The Daily Mail, to raise money for Rittenhouse’s freedom from jail, his lawyer - L. Lin Wood - launched a bail fund and on November 21 on Steve Bannon's YouTube show claimed that it had attracted thousands of contributions. He also shared a tweet on Friday that read: "KYLE RITTENHOUSE IS OUT OF JAIL. God bless ALL who donated to help #FightBack raise the required $2M cash bail. Special thanks to Actor Ricky Schroder @rickyshroder1 & Mike Lindell @realMikeLindell for putting us over the top. Kyle is SAFE. Thanks to ALL who helped this boy.”

Meanwhile, Schroder’s Sunday tweet has attracted a lot of attention on the social media site. Some were in support of the former child artist while others slammed him for helping a “terrorist”. “Be who you have always meant to be. Love your family love your country and love God. Through him all things will prevail,” a supporter of the 'NYPD Blue' actor commented. The second user said, “Thank you Ricky. Ignore the self haters who hate everything but hatred.” “Very proud of what you did to get that young man out of jail! Praying for God’s hedge of protection over you and the others trying to bring down all the injustice in this once great country,” the third fan added.



 



 



 

But there were more who did not like Schroder’s stand. One such user tweeted: “This is not how Democrats feel... This is how a VERY SMALL margin of people feel. You should be familiar with small margins... Cause that is now what your fan base is! Cause I'm OUT! Besides, that you made it CLEAR that THOSE are the type of people you prefer!” Another one joked, “Antifa? Where people have an opinion about you supporting and bailing out a murderer! What about the two that are dead, don’t they deserve justice? So sad to see this is who you are.”



 



 

“What makes you feel so strongly about this kid? Did he or didn’t he kill 2 and injured 1. He ruined three families lives. That’s my take what is yours Ricky?” the third user asked, while the fourth one mentioned: “Pretty sad when an insignificant actor has to pay 150K to help a murderer just to buy himself some attention. Go back to being ignored.”
