Actor Mark Ruffalo was hit with a backlash on social media when he honored Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum, who was fatally shot while attacking teenager Kyle Rittenhouse last year.

Ruffalo slammed a “racist system that devalues Black lives” when honoring Huber and Rosenbaum, whom the “Avengers” star referred to as “JoJo.” Rosenbaum was charged with child sex crimes of boys, ranging from ages 9-11 years old, and ultimately was sentenced to ten years in prison in a plea deal. 

Notably, Huber, Rosenbaum, and Rittenhouse are all white. Moreover, Rosenbaum is on video repeatedly shouting the N-word while at the riot in Kenosha.

“We come together to mourn the lives lost to the same racist system that devalues Black lives and devalued the lives of Anthony and JoJo,” Ruffalo posted to Twitter, Friday. 

“After all we have seen and heard about these weapons of war, these killing machines, there is no doubt that people who faced this young man were more afraid of him than he was of them,” he claimed. “He was the one with a weapon of war, loaded and ready to be used on people.”

“Justice weeps bitterly today,” the actor added. “We are coming together to heal the scars left by the wounds of this grief. We will care for each other and remember why we continue to march.”
