Karl-Anthony Towns’ 4-Word Response To Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict

Karl-Anthony Towns’ 4-Word Response To Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict

Early Friday afternoon a Wisconsin jury deemed that Kyle Rittenhouse was not guilty in a case stemming over the fatal shooting of two men in last year’s Kenosha racial protests.

Because the incident occurred during the 2020 protests over the shooting of Jacob Blake (who is black) by a white Kenosha police officer, there was a certain element of political polarization hanging over this case.

Ultimately, Rittenhouse was cleared on all five charges that were brought against him, including reckless homicide and attempted intentional homicide.

After the fact, Minnesota Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns weighed in on the verdict with a four-word message.

Reactions to his post, as one would expect, were mixed:

This isn’t Towns’ first venture into complex and divisive topics.

A few weeks back, he offered a rather blunt message regarding Kyrie Irving’s decision to remain unvaccinated. Somehow, it managed to anger both sides of the aisle.

Clearly Towns isn’t afraid to express his take on difficult subjects.

What will he ultimately weigh in on next? Time will tell.
