Kyle Rittenhouse, the Illinois teen who shot three protesters during the August 2020 Kenosha protests, and was charged with killing two of them is now released from the Kenosha County Jail after posting $2 million bond. Rittenhouse's arrest stirred a lot of controversies, as the nation got divided into two halves, as some protested for his bail while others wanted him right behind the bars. Some big conservatives came forward on Friday, November 20 in order to raise the huge bail amount for his release, including MyPillow CEO, Mike Lindell.

Apart from Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, who is an ally of President Donald Trump, 'Silver Spoon' actor Ricky Schroder also made donations in order to put the bail fund, "over the top," as lawyer L.Lin Wood tweeted on Friday, November 20. "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," he said in a tweet


Founder and CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, also known as the "MyPillow guy," was first tapped by President Donald Trump in the early days of his 2016 presidency to represent American entrepreneurship. Lindell is often referred as a major Trump donor and Fox News advertiser. The close alliance between him and Potus, with Trump referring to Lindell as a "friend" and called his firm's sales "unbelievable."Lindell, who does not have a science or medicine background, was also embroiled in controversy when he extended support with President Donald Trump, for an unproven Covid-19 "cure," the botanical extract oleandrin, derived from the oleander plant which is toxic to humans when consumed raw.  Lindell supported Trump during the annual Conservative Political Action Conference which took place in February 2020. He also posted a photo on Instagram of himself with Trump at the White House, saying he had been appointed the chair of the Trump 2020 campaign in Minnesota. “We will make Minnesota great again!” he wrote in the caption. Officials in the White House have also had internal discussions about Lindell’s political future, including a proposed run for governor.

As soon as the news of the whopping donation, came in light people started slamming him, as one Internet user said, "Ricky Schroder and Mike Lindell put Kyle Rittenhouse over the top w/his $2 million bail. Schroder was arrested for domestic violence twice w/in 30 days in 2019 and Lindell was also arrested for DV. Guns and domestic violence against women go hand in hand:" Journalist April Ryan wrote, "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! #KyleRittenhouse"



Another one said, "Both Rick Schroder and Mike Lindell defend a killer apparently, truly hope Kyle Rittenhouse gets life in prison." One angry Internet user said, "Rick Schroder and Mike [email protected] want Americans to know it is okay to "Kill Black Americans" on behalf of Trump, a Criminal, Grifter, & American Traitor who succeeded in turning Americans against Americans with his Hate & Racism - they too want Black Americans dead...!" Slamming him one said, "Mike Lindell and Rudy Giuliani are the type of low character and low moral people who hang out with Donald Trump." Calling him, "phony" another one wrote, "Mike Lindell is a phony religious guy just like Donald Trump."
