L. Lin Wood, the attorney representing Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old accused of killing two people during an August protest in Kenosha, Wisc., announced on Friday that his client is out of jail.

Rittenhouse is up against first-degree intentional homicide and attempted homicide charges — his legal team is claiming self defense and video footage of the shootings may support that assertion.

In sharing the news on Twitter, Wood said actor Ricky Schroder and My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell helped contribute to the $2 million cash bail — which set off unhinged left-wing players like Bette Midler.

“FREE AT LAST,” the attorney tweeted, along with a photo of the ‘Silver Spoon’ actor and one of Rittenhouse’s attorneys posing with the high school student.

Speaking of the photo, the out-of-control cancel culture on the left set after Black Rifle Coffee because Rittenhouse was wearing a t-shirt with the Utah company’s name on it.

Co-founder Evan Hafer dismissed any rumors of a connection in a statement.

“We do not support legal advocacy efforts,” Hafer said. “We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

The oft-violent Black Lives Matter movement and their media establishment allies were quick to suggest that Rittenhouse was a trigger-happy white supremacist, and Midler has already declared him guilty, calling him “a murdering child” as she went after Shroder and Lindell.

“Thanks to everyone who let a murdering child out to do it again?” Midler tweeted on Saturday. ”This boy killed 2 & gravely injured another. Why are you celebrating him? Anyone who owns #MyPillow should toss it immediately into the nearest landfill. And #RickySchroder? Who knew he could be so malevolent?”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., also commented. Staying true to the class warfare mentality she personifies, the socialist lawmaker attributed Rittenhouse’s release to being “privileged.”

In addition to characterizing it as “systemic racism,” Ocasio-Cortez adding that his release is “protection of white supremacy baked deep into our carceral systems.”

But rest assured, AOC and Midler were far from alone in reacting, and playing the race card was a common refrain — for what it’s worth, the two protesters killed by Rittenhouse were white.

Here’s a sampling of some other noted responses from Twitter:

As for AOC’s drivel, social media users weren’t buying what she was peddling:
