On Tuesday night, Avengers star Mark Ruffalo joined a socially distant version of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. After exchanging some light pleasantries, the two got down to business, discussing the shooting of Jacob Blake—by a police officer, seven times in the back; the ongoing protests and riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin; and Trump’s divisive rhetoric in the wake of it all.
You see, the Oscar-nominated actor is perhaps the most famous living person from Kenosha—since Orson Welles is no longer with us—and as such, the unrest in the city hit close to home, literally.
“These protests have been predominately peaceful. We don’t hear about that, you know? We only see the guys, like in Kenosha, Wisconsin, they made 170 arrests over those days of protests, and 120 of them were from out of town. And they were provocateurs, and they were trashing a town that they’re not even from. That was what broke my heart, because that’s not what I know about Kenosha, Wisconsin,” said Ruffalo.
