A Texas police department is defending an officer who took selfies with teenage gun rights activist Kyle Rittenhouse.

The officer pulled Rittenhouse over for speeding in Thrall, Texas, a small city with a population of about 800, near Austin.

The officer took a selfie with the 19-year-old gun enthusiast and the image was posted on the Thrall Police Department's Facebook page.

"Make those stops, you never know who you might meet. Today it was Kyle Rittenhouse, welcome to Texas," the Thrall Police Department wrote in the caption.

The photo went viral, amassing over 1,800 comments, 1,600 shares and 12,000 likes as of Sunday.

The Thrall Police Department declined to identify the officer who is seen smiling with Rittenhouse.

After a furious backlash, the unapologetic police department updated its original post to note that the teenager was found innocent by a jury of his peers in a court of law.

"I must have missed something, I believed that this young man was arrested, charged, indicted and then found not guilty by a jury of his peers. Is this not how our country works anymore? The hate in these comments is terrible, if you have information that is contrary to that I would honestly love to hear it."

Rittenhouse (sitting on ground) was only 17 when he crossed state lines to help protect local businesses during rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin in August 2020.

He was acquitted in 2021 of killing two white men and wounding a third at a Jacob Blake protest in Kenosha.

Some social media users were angry that the graphic images were not immediately taken down by the social media platforms.

"What the f---?" wrote one Instagram user. Others reportedly slid into his DMs to drop their phone numbers.

Young and older women were impressed by the 59-year-old rocker's fit body for a senior citizen.

Tommy Lee rose to superstardom as the drummer of the 1980s rock band Mötley Crüe, alongside Vince Neil, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx.

He is also best known for his relationship with buxom actress and Playboy Playmate Pamela Anderson in the 1990s when she was star of Baywatch. Their union helped popularize the phrase "power couple."

The Hulu/Disney+ miniseries "Pam and Tommy" earned 10 Emmy nominations, including Best Limited Series this year.

The miniseries focuses on their marriage and an infamous sex tape that was privately recorded during their honeymoon.

They divorced in 1998 after three years of marriage and two sons together. They briefly reunited in 2001 after Lee's release from jail, and again in 2008.

From 2002 until 2003, Lee was engaged to dancer Mayte Garcia, who is best known as the ex-wife of the late pop icon Prince.

Twitter/Dean Wright

A middle school teacher in Oregon was placed on paid leave after he was caught sending "nude selfies" to a student.

According to the Salem Reporter, Dean Wright was escorted from Judson Middle School by police on Monday. It isn't clear if he was arrested.

The school took action after Wright's selfie circulated on social media and was viewed by some middle school students.

In an email sent to parents, Judson Middle School's principal said Wright told school officials he "mistakenly" sent the nudes to a boy at South High School. Wright said the images were meant for another person.

However, parents demanded to know why the boy's number was in a teacher's personal cell phone.

Wright is openly gay and an outspoken member of the Salem, Oregon LGBT+ community.

In a recent TikTok video, Wright said he is most proud of "normalizing" the use of proper pronouns (he/him, she/her, they/them) in his classroom.

Wright, who is mixed race, also teaches critical race theory (CRT) in his class and he opposes Florida's "Don't Say Gay" bill which was signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday.

On the same day Wright was placed on leave, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown tweeted:

"In Oregon, we say gay.

I'm horrified and outraged by the anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation that was just signed in Florida, making schools a less safe space for LGBTQIA+ kids. Oregon will always be a safe, inclusive, and welcoming place — no matter one’s sexual orientation or identity."
