State Rep. Givan: Rittenhouse verdict a ‘sad damn day in America’ — ‘White supremacy is America!!’

On Friday, a Wisconsin jury found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on charges in the fatal shooting of two people during rioting last year in Kenosha, Wis.

While many celebrated the verdict as a victory for self-defense, not everyone took the news well, including State Rep. Juandalynn Givan (D-Birmingham).

Immediately after the verdict was read, Givan took to social media to criticize the ruling, declaring “white supremacy” was America.

She tweeted, “IT’S A SAD DAMN DAY IN AMERICA THAT A JURY OF 12 WOULD SAY THAT ITS PERFECTLY OK THAT KYLE RITTENHOUSE A WHITE PUNK BOY CAN KILL TWO INNOCENT PEOPLE AND PARALYZE ONE!!! WHITE SUPREMACY IS AMERICA!!”
