Drew Carey’s 11-year-old son may be in big trouble.
Connor Carey is reportedly the young protester in a Fox News video of an inauguration rally where protesters were seen burning signs.
The 11-year-old, who identifies himself as Connor, told Fox News’ Griff Jenkins he “kind of started this fire” because “I felt like it and because I’m just saying ‘screw our president.'”
TMZ reported the child in the video is Drew Carey’s son. A rep for the TV star could not immediately verify Carey’s son is the child in the video, but a picture of the comedian with his son on Carey’s Instagram account appears to show the same child in the video.
News footage of the boy went viral after the inauguration eve protest in Washington D.C. — and we’ve confirmed it was 11-year-old Connor behind one of the night’s most memorable moments.
A source close to Drew tells us Connor got caught up in the emotions of the crowd around him, and he was in hot water afterward. We’re told Drew and Connor’s mom were upset about how he expressed himself to the reporter, and talked to him about his language.
