Black Rifle Coffee, which until now had been a favorite of true-blue Americans, has announced that it does not support Second Amendment advocate Kyle Rittenhouse.
Why Black Rifle felt the need to stick its finger in its customers’ eyes is unknown, but the company went out of its way to close the door on the Illinois teenager accused of killing two Black Lives Matter terrorists who were attacking him during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The company took to Twitter to slam Rittenhouse after the teen was seen wearing a Black Rifle Coffee T-Shirt on the day he was bailed out of jail. Liberals wondered if Black Rock had some sort of connection to Rittenhouse and instead of just saying there was no connection and leaving it at that, the company’s CEO, Evan Hafer, went further to hint that Rittenhouse is a criminal.
The company put out a statement saying:
As a veteran-owned and operated coffee company, Black Rifle Coffee Company exists to serve premium coffee while supporting the veteran Community. At the core of Black Rifle Coffee’s values is to support and bring awareness to the millions of veterans who have proudly served our nation and we will not waver from that mission.
The Black Rifle brand is a symbol of service, of strength, and of goodness that has carried over from our military origins. It’s why we support active duty service members and veterans, prioritize veteran hiring, and advocate for individual liberty and personal responsibility.
We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor, nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.
We believe in the integrity of the legal justice system, and support law enforcement officials.
We’re grateful for the continued support of the Black Rifle Coffee community and eager to continue serving those who serve.
According to Big League Politics, it appears that Black Rifle is also now looking to reassess its connection to the conservative website The Blaze because Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer posted the photo of Rittenhouse wearing the shirt.
So, not only does Black Rifle now oppose the Second Amendment and think that anyone who exercises their Constitutional right to self-protection is a criminal, now they may be pulling their advertising with the conservative website.
It was nice knowing ya, Black Rifle. Say goodbye to your customers.
