Aubrey Huff Called Kenosha Gunman A ‘National Treasure’
- Huff’s post on Twitter, where he called gunman Kyle Rittenhouse a “national treasure,” garnered “more than 2,700 likes and 1,165 retweets and comments,” the NY Post reported. Huff’s tweet “drew a mixed reaction of disgust and support before it was deleted Thursday morning.”
“#KyleRittenhouse is a national treasure,” the ex-San Francisco Giant tweeted Wednesday night.
- Huff has “made headlines before for his controversial tweets,” the report continued. In January, after the Giants “promoted Alyssa Nakken to assistant coach — making her the first full-time female assistant coach in Major League Baseball history — Huff tweeted, ‘This has #metoo & #BelieveAllWomen written all over it. Only in @SFGiants.’”
- Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old gunman, was “charged Wednesday with first-degree intentional homicide for allegedly fatally shooting one man in the head and another in the chest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the night before,” the NY Post wrote. “The teen from Antioch, Illinois, is being held without bond. He is due back in court on Friday.”
- “Nightly riots have broken out in the Wisconsin city for three days, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake on Sunday,” the NY Post concluded.
