Carlson stuck up for Kyle Rittenhouse, who was arrested for allegedly killing two protesters and injuring another with an AR-15 rifle during demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisconsin over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, saying he “decided to maintain order when no one else would.” “Are we really surprised this looting and arson accelerated to murder?" Carlson asked on his show Wednesday. "How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would? Everyone can see what was happening in Kenosha. It was getting crazier by the hour." His comments sparked backlash, including from many calling for Fox News to fire him. "Tucker Carlson supports vigilante teens murdering BLM protestors in cold blood," tweeted Andrew Zimmern. "He believes this is 'maintaining order.'"
