On Friday, Southern Star Brewing Company in Conroe, Texas announced on Twitter that they were canceling the "Rally Against Censorship," an event it was scheduled to host on January 26 that featured Kyle Rittenhouse as a speaker, and said they "don't do rallies" and the event did not reflect their "values."
Rittenhouse responded on Twitter and wrote, "It's really disappointing to see that places continue to censor me and not allow my voice and many other voices to be heard because they bend to the woke crowd. I'll keep you guys updated on the event on the 26th that I was supposed to speak at."
The Texas brewing company's full post read, "No More. Southern Star Brewery is an apolitical organization. But we feel that this event doesn't reflect our own values and we could not in good faith continue to rent our space for the event on 1/26. We don't do rallies, we make beer for people who like beer."
One user on Twitter wrote, "Nothing says apolitical like cancelling a first amendment event."
"Nothing says apolitical like picking a side," another user wrote."
Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges, on November 19, 2021, related to an incident where he used an AR-15 to defend his life during a Black Lives Matter riot. Rittenhouse was charged with first-degree reckless homicide in the death of Joseph Rosenbaum, first-degree intentional homicide in the death of Anthony Huber, first-degree attempted intentional homicide for injuring Gaige Grosskreutz, and two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety. Rittenhouse had pleaded not guilty to all charges.
After his acquittal, students at Arizona State University, where Rittenhouse took online classes, pressured the college to remove Rittenhouse from classes, Fox News reports.
"Once you bend to the woke you are doomed. They control your business not you," a Twitter user said of the brewery's cancellation of Rittenhouse.
