Pro Football Hall of Famer Brian Urlacher’s social media activity was blasted Thursday as he appeared to slam the NBA players’ strike over the Jacob Blake shooting and was caught liking a post in support of a 17-year-old suspect who allegedly shot protesters in Wisconsin.
On Thursday, he shared an image on his Instagram that read: “Brett Favre played the [Monday Night Football] game the day his dad died, threw 4 TDs in the first half, and was a legend for playing in the face of adversity.
“NBA players boycott the playoffs because a dude reaching for a knife wanted on a felony sexual assault warrant, was shot by police.”
He also "liked" another Instagram photo, which read: “Free Kyle Rittenhouse.” Rittenhouse was identified as the suspected gunman who crossed state lines and is alleged to have shot and killed two people during the unrest in Kenosha.

World Series champion Aubrey Huff praised the 17-year-old gunman charged with killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“#KyleRittenhouse is a national treasure,” the ex-San Francisco Giant tweeted Wednesday night.
Huff’s post, which garnered more than 2,700 likes and 1,165 retweets and comments, drew a mixed reaction of disgust and support before it was deleted Thursday morning.
The 43-year-old dad of two — who helped lead the Giants to their 2010 World Series win — has made headlines before for his controversial tweets.
In January, after the Giants promoted Alyssa Nakken to assistant coach — making her the first full-time female assistant coach in Major League Baseball history — Huff tweeted, “This has #metoo & #BelieveAllWomen written all over it. Only in @SFGiants.”

We live in a bizarre world where people say a man shot 7 times from the police and likely can never walk again deserved it. Also, Jacob Blake was not reaching for a knife. Another lie.
These same people also praise an actual murderer in Rittenhouse.
These people live in the foxnews/Facebook/alt-right bubble where facts and information are distorted.
