A Texas brewery has canceled a rally featuring Kyle Rittenhouse, claiming the event doesn’t reflect its values.
Southern Star Brewing Company, a brewery in Conroe, Texas, will no longer host the “Rally Against Censorship” with Rittenhouse on Jan. 26, explaining its position Friday in a Twitter post.
“South star brewery is an apolitical organization. But we believe that this event does not reflect our own values and we could not in good faith continue to rent our venue for the 1/26 event. We’re not rallying, we’re making beer for people who like beer,” the brewery said.
Rittenhouse reacted to Southern Star Brewing Co.’s cancellation of the event.
“It’s really frustrating to see that places continue to censor me and not allow my voice and many other voices to be heard because they pander to the woke crowd. I’ll keep you posted on the event on the 26th, which I was scheduled to speak at,” Rittenhouse said.
“I don’t support companies that don’t support the First Amendment,” Rittenhouse added in another tweet.
In November 2021, students at Arizona State University called on the university administration to withdraw Rittenhouse from classes, with four leftist student organizations calling him the “Kyle Rittenhouse Killer”.
Rittenhouse was not a student at the university, but took online classes during the fall 2021 semester.
Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all charges after facing five charges, including first-degree murder, in connection with the riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin in the summer of 2020.
If convicted, Rittenhouse could have faced a mandatory life sentence.
