Former “Silver Spoons” actor Ricky Schroder has been the subject of non-stop death threats and harassment since he helped post bond for Kenosha Riots gunman Kyle Rittenhouse, ultimately having to go to the police to report some of the messages he’s received.
The actor, known for his child acting and modern day roles in shows such as “NYPD Blue,” has reportedly been subject to much online ire since he helped Rittenhouse get out of jail until his court date.
While not all comments were threatening, some were just rather uncouth in nature.
“This was a racist move pure and simple,” one person wrote.
“Ricky Schroder can shove that silver spoon right up his own a**,” responded another.
Others admitted they had forgotten about him.
“Tbh thought he was dead,” one user wrote. “Would’ve been better.”
According to TMZ, Schroder was slammed by fellow celebrities, including Bette Milder.
“Who knew he could be so malevolent?” she wrote.
Midler referred to Rittenhouse as “a murdering child,” who “killed 2 & gravely injured another.”
Police determined that the online threats provided weren’t substantial enough to take any real action, but are monitoring the situation should it get out of hand.
Rittenhouse, an Illinois resident who was extradited over to Wisconsin following the incident, is facing first-degree intentional homicide for the death of Anthony Huber, 26 of Silver Lake, attempted first-degree intentional homicide for the shooting of Gauge Grosskreutz, 26 of West Allis, and first-degree reckless homicide for the death of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36 of Kenosha.
The incident took place on August 26, during riots caused by the nonfatal shooting of Jacob Blake.
Rittenhouse had been performing fire suppression, first aid and security duties at the time of the riots.
Footage of the shooting shows the young man was pursued and attacked by Rosenbaum, who attempted to take Rittenhouse’s AR15.
After fatally shooting Rosenbaum, Rittenhouse was pursued and engaged by several rioters, including Huber and Grosskreutz.
After falling to the ground, Huber began bludgeoning Rittenhouse in the head with a skateboard. In response, Rittenhouse fatally shot Huber with a single round to the chest.
Grosskreutz, who was acting as a “paramedic” for the rioters, appeared to feign surrender before taking aim with a handgun.
Acting quickly, Rittenhouse fired, blowing off Grosskreutz’ bicep.
Rittenhouse attempted to surrender to police but was told to go home.
In the subsequent investigation, it was discovered that Rittenhouse had purchased the Smith & Wesson AR with stimulus check money, and that his friend had made the purchase through a quasi-”straw purchase” affair, storing the firearm for Rittenhouse in Wisconsin until he was able to get an Illinois Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card, required in the state to purchase arms and ammunition.
Rittenhouse is defended by several high-power lawyers, including Lin Wood.
