It’s a title that former child star Scott Baio has held onto tenaciously for over a decade. But it now looks like Rick(y) Shroder is in serious contention to replace Baio as “Most Loathsome Former Child Star”.

Shroder, 51, made his presence as a Loathsome Former Child Star known back in November 2020 when he was identified as the guy who posted bail for Kyle Rittenhouse.

“This was Kyle’s life being destroyed” Shroder said , without a hint of recognizing the irony of bailing out a person who took an illegally obtained AR-15 to a protest zone and ending up killing two protestors and permanently disabling another.

The Loathsome Former Child Star bar had previously been set very high (low) by former “Joanie Loves Chachi” star Baio. After a strong start of accusing President Barak Obama of being “Muslim”, Baio followed up by spreading Sandy Hook conspiracies  speculating that his former “Joanie Loves Cachi” co-star died of “drug abuse” (it was actually Stage 4 Cancer) defending Roseanne and picking a fight with Wanda Sykes, which he lost.

Schroder made an impressive showing over the weekend, though, by going to a Costco and berating an employee for the store’s mask policy:

My guess is that the employee doesn’t have “bailing out accused murderer” type of money, so it really comes off as punching down for Schroder.

Also, I couldn’t get confirmation that Schroder was ORIGINALLY at the Costco to pick up a job application by publication time so I guess that one will have to be filed under “unconfirmed” at this point.
