Black Lives Matter (BLM) distanced themselves from Kyle Rittenhouse on Monday after he expressed assist for the motion.

The group linked to an article about Rittenhouse’s interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. In it, Rittenhouse stated: “I’m not a racist person. I support the BLM movement. I support peacefully demonstrating.”

In response, BLM tweeted “Alexa play: I don’t f–k with you,” and a gif with the acronym “IDFWU.” It was referencing the Big Sean song carrying that title. 

KYLE RITTENHOUSE TELLS TUCKER CARLSON CASE HAD ‘NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE’ IN FIRST INTERVIEW AFTER AQUITTAL

Rittenhouse was not too long ago discovered not responsible on all expenses associated to his conduct throughout a racially charged protest in Wisconsin final summer time. The verdict has prompted left-wing commentators to recommend that it was one other triumph of White supremacy throughout the justice system.

In one other tweet, BLM described Rittenhouse as a “little racist/terrorist” who “represents the exact kind of white-supremacist vigilante violence that we’ve seen before.”

Rittenhouse informed Carlson that he is not a racist individual and that his case wasn’t about race.

“This case has nothing to do with race. It never had anything to do with race. It had to do with the right to self-defense,” he stated.
