Dean Cain teamed up with Chris Kyle on the NBC show “Stars Earn Stripes” and was friends with the “American Sniper” author. When he learned that Jesse Ventura intended to pursue his defamation claim with Kyle’s widow as the defendant, he tweeted, “This is disgusting.” And he continues to “stand firmly with Chris Kyle” after Ventura was awarded $1.8 million.

Cain also retweeted this message to Ventura from Navy SEAL combat veteran Brent Gleeson.

Gleeson appeared on “Stars Earn Stripes” with Cain and Kyle in 2012.
