Finally free to speak out, Kyle Rittenhouse shreds NBA star for mocking his trial tears: ‘F*** LeBron James’

Kyle Rittenhouse had some choice words for NBA star LeBron James during a recent interview with BlazeTV’s “You Are Here.”

What’s a brief history here?

Rittenhouse, recently acquitted on homicide charges in connection to the Kenosha, Wisconsin, riots of 2020, broke down in an emotional testimony during the trial, in which he recalled the night that he shot three rioters in self-defense.

James mocked Rittenhouse, now 18, for the display of emotion at the time, sharing a clip of the teen’s testimony in court.

tweeted, “What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”

What is Rittenhouse saying now?

Rittenhouse told “You Are Here” host Elijah Schaeffer that he used to count himself among James’ fans — but no longer.

“I was a Lakers fan, too, before he said that,” Rittenhouse revealed. “I was really pissed off when he said that because I liked LeBron. And then I’m like, you know what, f*** you, LeBron.”

During his testimony regarding the night he shot three individuals in self-defense during a riot, Rittenhouse at one point broke down in tears.

On Nov. 19, Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all five charges, including intentional homicide, in relation to the fatal shooting of two men and the injuring of a third.

Anything else?

Contrary to some reporting, Rittenhouse is not suing James for defamation.

An attorney for the teen told USA Today that his client has not filed any defamation suits against James and that any reports to the contrary are erroneous.

A viral Facebook post dated Nov. 30 asserted that a federal magistrate approved a defamation suit against James for mocking the teen on social media during his murder trial.

In response to the claims, Mark Richards, Rittenhouse’s lead attorney, told the outlet via email that “just cause [sic] it is on the internet doesn’t make it so.”

Rittenhouse spokesperson David Hancock also told the Associated Press that Rittenhouse’s legal team is not discussing any filings.
