KENOSHA — Kyle Rittenhouse was released on bond Friday, and the My Pillow guy helped pay for it.

Rittenhouse's $2 million bond was partially paid for by Mike Lindell, the inventor and CEO of My Pillow, according to Rittenhouse's defense Attorney Lin Wood.

Wood said actor Ricky Schroeder also helped pay for the bond.

Wood later shared a photo of Schroeder and fellow defense team lawyer John Pierce with Rittenhouse after he was released on bond and wrote, "FREE AT LAST!!!"

He also shared a tweet about the moment he got off the phone with Rittenhouse saying, "Just off phone with Kyle. With tears in my eyes, I listened as he expressed thanks to The People for your prayers, donations & support. He prayed every day & night & said God lifted him up every time he fell. Kyle is a hero. So are his supporters. Keep him in your prayers"
