Actor Ricky Schroder is making news after he allegedly contributed $150,000 toward Kyle Rittenhouse’s $2-million bail, helping free the accused killer.
TMZ reported Schroder, 50, contributed $150,000 to the fund after one of Rittenhouse’s attorneys, Lin Wood, tweeted a triumphant photograph Friday showing lawyer John Pierce, Rittenhouse and Schroder soon after Rittenhouse was released from custody.
“FREE AT LAST!!!” he wrote, quoting Martin Luther King Jr. Wood had previously thanked Schroder in a tweet, writing, “Special thanks to Actor Ricky Schroder… & Mike Lindell @realMikeLindell for putting us over the top.”
Lindell, 59, is the founder, CEO, and spokesman of MyPillow.
