Actress Rosanne Arquette made headlines when she questioned whether United States Supreme Court justices were members of the Ku Klux Klan, according to Fox News.
Arquette tweeted her question on Tuesday, the one-year anniversary of the death of George Floyd.
“I wonder how many Supreme Court judges are members of the kkk,” she wrote, without giving any reason as to why she was questioning the members of the nation’s high court.

Answers to her tweet ranged from encouraging the actress to outrage at the wild speculation and everything in between, though the vast majority had aggressively derogatory comments to make about the conservative judges on the court.
“Probably a couple of them including Clarence Thomas…,” replied one user, referencing the court’s only Black member.
One poster took the question seriously, breaking down the court’s makeup, saying: “Well, there are six Catholics, one of whom is black, and two Jews. That only leaves maybe Gorsuch. Not sure how the Klan feels about Episcopalians… But I can tell you they ain’t too keen on the rest.”
“I wonder how many brain cells I just lost reading this,”said a third.
The Pulp Fiction actress has long been an outspoken progressive on Twitter and frequently criticizes Republicans, slams those she believes are exercising White privilege, and speaks out for far-leftist causes.
“The barbaric death of George Floyd changed the world ,as (sic) well as the many human beings who were also murdered at the hands of violent racist police officers .Black Lives Matter ,we will never forget. Rest in power Sir,” she wrote about the death that sparked international outrage.
