WATCH: Protestors Demanding Rittenhouse's Expulsion from ASU Clash with Counterprotestors on Campus

TimCast was on the scene to hear arguments from both sides

About 100 students gathered at Arizona State University to protest the presence of Kyle Rittenhouse on campus.

Four student groups — Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, the Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and the Mexican American student group MEChA de AS — launched the campaign to expel the Rittenhouse after his recent acquittal.

The student groups, which held signs that read “End White Supremacy” and “Killer Off Our Campus,” were met with about 100 counterprotestors brandishing signs reading “Facts Don’t Care About Your Feelings” and “Rosenbaum died as he lived: trying to touch a minor.”

Elad Eliahu was on the scene to speak with protestors on both sides of the aisle about the claim that Rittenhouse is a white supremacist, the young man’s recent statement in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and the nuances of the jury’s verdict in Wisconsin.
