The Mandalorian actor Pedro Pascal, who plays the main character, Din Djarin in Lucasfilm’s Disney+ series, recently mourned the assailants of Kyle Rittenhouse.
Rittenhouse was found not guilty by a jury of his peers on all five counts he was charged with. Rittenhouse was charged with first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, first-degree intentional homicide, and attempted first-degree intentional homicide.
The first charge of first-degree reckless homicide was for the killing of Joseph Rosenbaum. Video showed Rittenhouse attempting to flee Rosenbaum and even drawing his weapon in an effort to deter Rosenbaum. It did not and Rosenbaum continued to pursue Rittenhouse and even lunged at his gun. Rittenhouse then shot and killed him.
Rosenbaum also has a lengthy criminal record including being a registered sex offender. As reported by Heavy, Rosenbaum had been accused of anal rape, forcible oral sex, masturbating in front of a minor, and distributing naked photos of a woman under the age of 18.
Rosenbaum would eventually be convicted of sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree during a plea deal.
The charge of first-degree intentional homicide was for the killing of Anthony Huber. Video presented during the case showed Kyle Rittenhouse fall to the ground as he was being pursued by a violent mob. While on the ground, Huber attacked Rittenhouse with a skateboard hitting him in the head.
After being attacked by Huber, Rittenhouse fired his rifle and killed Anthony Huber.
A crowd chases a suspected shooter down in Kenosha. He trips and falls, then turns with the gun and fires several times. Shots can be heard fired elsewhere as well, corroborating reports of multiple shooters tonight #Kenosha #KenoshaRiots pic.twitter.com/qqsYWmngFW

Like Rosenbaum, Huber also has a lengthy criminal record. Heavy reports that Huber was a repeat domestic abuser.
In fact, they note “his most serious came when he was found guilty of a felony for strangulation and suffocation, domestic abuse. He was also convicted in that case of felony false imprisonment with a dangerous weapon, domestic abuse.”
Pascal mourned the two assailants and criminal convicts on Twitter. He also appeared to libel Kyle Rittenhouse claiming that Rosenbaum and Huber were murdered when in fact a jury ruled that Rosenbaum and Huber were the assailants and Kyle Rittenhouse was defending himself.
He wrote, “Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 27, murdered August 25th, 2020. Rest In Peace.”
This isn’t the first time Pascal has posted something abhorrent to his social media.
Back in November 2020, Pascal shared a meme comparing supporters of Donald Trump to Nazis.
What do you make of Pascal’s comments? Do you think he just opened himself up to a civil lawsuit?
