Former child actor Ricky Schroder, who recently bragged about bailing out 17-year-old Kenosha, Wisconsin, shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, claims to now have faced threats online.
According to TMZ, officers arrived at Schroder's house after he filed the claim and investigated online posts flagged by the actor. Police then determined that some of the replies may have been crude, but “none of the online comments rose to the level of a criminal threat.”
A social media user scribed, "Ricky Schroder can shove that silver spoon right up his own a*s." Another person wrote, "tbh thought he was dead. Would've been better."
As Blavity previously reported, Rittenhouse made bail last week after being arrested for killing two men during Jacob Blake protests in Kenosha. Schroder contributed $150,000 towards the bail, which was set at $2 million.
The Silver Spoons star boasted about his conservative views in a series of social media posts on the same day he bragged about helping the teenager. Posting a screenshot of the opposing responses he received online, along with a photo of himself holding a gun, Schroder targeted his message to Democrats and Antifa.
"To my Democrat Friends. This is the country want to live in? #f**kantifa," he wrote.
