by marvel The Avengers Star Mark Ruffalo faces widespread ridicule for paying a rousing tribute to Kyle Rittenhouse’s abusers, including serial pedophile and sex offender Joseph Rosenbaum, whom the Hollywood star affectionately referred to as “JoJo.”
In a bizarre tweet, Mark Ruffalo paid tribute to the two men Rittenhouse shot dead in self-defense after physically attacking him during last year’s Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Ruffalo – who was born in Kenosha – referred to Joseph Rosenbaum by the nickname “JoJo” as he praised the attackers as victims of a “racist system”.
We come together to mourn the lives lost to the same racist system that devalues the lives of black people and devalues the lives of Anthony and JoJo. # ReimagineKenosha

Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, was a level three sex offender convicted with a long sheet of criminal rap. He was charged in 2002 with 11 counts of pedophilia and inappropriate sexual activity with children, including anal rape, masturbation, oral sex and child pornography.
Video footage showed Rosenbaum using the N word as he challenged people to shoot him last year.
Look below (Attention: graphical language):
Rittenhouse’s other striker, Anthony Huber, 27, was also a criminal. In 2013, he pleaded guilty to two counts of strangulation and suffocation, as well as false imprisonment, in a domestic violence case. He was arrested and charged after attacking his brother and grandmother with a knife.
Mark Ruffalo now faces widespread mockery for his tweet referring to Rosenbaum as “JoJo”.
Did Mark Ruffalo seriously give the deceased child rapist Joseph Rosenbaum a nickname? Jojo ? Why yes, yes he did. https://t.co/aXUdANOOzn

Mark Ruffalo is either monumental stupid or a fan of pedophilia. Jojo ? Wtaf.

Do you normally use cute animal names for child rapists?

Joseph Rosenbaum: * rapes five boys aged 9-11, gets killed trying to get hold of another underage boy *
Mark Ruffalo: poor JoJo left too early ❤️ https://t.co/kIx5p3tHKB

By the way, another wonderful Disney employee.
And I had no idea until now, but Mark Ruffalo was actually born in Kenosha!
Maybe he even knew JOJO Rosenbaum personally!

Do yourself a favor and go back to the trial.
