No, Ben And Jerry���s Did Not Honor Rittenhouse Shooting Victim With New Flavor

Ben & Jerry’s has decried the Kyle Rittenhouse trial as proof that America’s justice system is racist.

The Vermont-based ice cream company, which has a reputation for taking up liberal causes, weighed in on the case in a tweet on Thursday after Mr Rittenhouse’s defence rested its case.

“The #RittenhouseTrial displays yet again that our ‘justice’ system is racist,” the tweet read. “How would this trial be going if he was a Black 17 yr old that crossed state lines illegally carrying an AR-15 and shot 3 white protesters?

“We need real justice in this legal system. This isn’t it.”

Mr Rittenhouse is facing a slew of charges for shooting three men – two fatally – during racial justice protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on 25 August 2020.

His attorneys have sought to convince a jury that Mr Rittenhouse acted in self-defence on the night shrouded in chaos.

The #RittenhouseTrial displays yet again that our “justice” system is racist.⁰⁰How would this trial be going if he was a Black 17 yr old that crossed state lines illegally carrying an AR-15 and shot 3 white protesters?⁰⁰We need real justice in the legal system. This isn’t it.

— Ben & Jerry's (@benandjerrys) November 12, 2021

The outcome of the case has broad implications as it touches on issues including police violence, white vigilantism, racial justice, the Second Amendment, and the failures of the criminal justice system.
