Fox News Infuriates Audience With Nancy Grace Segment Referring to Rittenhouse as a 'Vigilante' (VIDEO)


Fox Nation host Nancy Grace has sparked controversy among the network’s viewers with a “special” blasting Kyle Rittenhouse as a “vigilante.”

The show aired one day before closing arguments in the teenager’s trial, where he is facing two charges of homicide in the shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during the Kenosha riots in 2020.

During Grace’s show, a chyron across the bottom of the screen read, “TEEN VIGILANTE GUNS DOWN THREE, HEADS TO JURY.”

The special opened up with a fiery Grace demanding, “out of thousands of protesters that night, one person, only one, opens fire. Kyle Rittenhouse — and he leaves in his wake two dead bodies and a third person shot and bleeding.”

While describing the events, Grace referred to the riot as a “protest” and the rioters as “protesters,” while branding Rittenhouse a “vigilante.”

Grace went on to ask “what is going on in that Wisconsin court room?”

“You’ve got an angry judge, a mother crying out of control out in the audience, the jury can see her…” Grace said, before introducing her panel.

Throughout the special, the host’s contempt for the teen on trial was very apparent. Though she admitted that he was chased down in the video footage, she pondered whether or not he had been out “looking for trouble” — therefore negating his right to self defense.

“Can you have a teen vigilante out there looking for trouble?” Grace asked the panel. “Is it either that or is it self defense? The question tonight is, can both be true? Can you have a teen vigilante out with a high powered weapon, looking for trouble, loaded for bear, and shoot in self defense? It doesn’t seem like they go together.”

Viewers did not hold back, tagging Fox News and expressing their outrage over the host’s opinions.

Rittenhouse has also been charged with possessing a weapon as a minor and with multiple counts of reckless endangerment. He maintains that he was acting in self-defense.

On Monday, the prosecution and defense will each have two and a half hours to make their closing arguments to the jury.

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has put 500 National Guard troops on standby for the jury’s decision.

    People that are upset should look into what happened in NYC in 1978 (tl;dr: basically The Joker) and how it actually forced the city to stop being lax about rampant crime, and the entire city supported the “vigilante”

    The term is not inappropriate. Not saying the kid was wrong for doing it, but it is what it is.

    Fox is only a smudge better then the other Legacy media. They have people like, Juan, Geraldo, and Nancy plus others. If not already, besides Tucker, FOX needs to be on everyone’s No Watch list.

    Nancy Grace also pre-maturely declared and insinuated that the Duke Lacrosse players were guilty by virtue of their ‘privileged’ families and lifestyles………………… and then when that case was thrown out because of corrupt prosecutorial actions along with the alleged victim fabricating her entire story….. Nancy Grace had little to nothing to say.

    What??? FOX is being MISLEADING??? This is NOT news to most of us. Stopped watching everything FOX in December 2020 and have never, ever gone back. Fox is even worse than openly liberal MSM because they lie and pose as a conservative network. That ended a few years ago.

    Why do people think that Fox is a pro-gun, right-leaning news outlet? They hated Trump and the American people until they saw an opportunity to capitalize on the business of being the only pro-Trump, pro-GOP legacy media outlet. Fox is certainly worth watching/reading to keep a perspective on the crazy out there so that we’re prepared for them.

    Seems like Nancy Grace didn’t do the research or didn’t care to be informed about the facts or the trial at all. She just woke up and regurgitated whatever her activist producer fed her. Just retire already and let someone who cares fill your time slot.
