The Kyle Rittenhouse trial was one of the most talked-about and high-profile trials right now. Despite all of his offences, he still has his supporters for some reason. It seems Rittenhouse decided to hit back at LeBron James for his previous comments.
For those who don’t know, Rittenhouse shot three men during demonstrations in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020. This resulted in two deaths and one of them was injured. According to the New York Times, the teenager faces six counts, including charges of first-degree intentional homicide.
Prior to the not guilty verdict, LeBron James commented on Rittenhouse crying during his murder trial. James made fun of him and made it clear that he didn’t believe Rittenhouse was actually crying.
While speaking on The BlazeTV’s “You Are Here” show, Kyle Rittenhouse stated that he is no longer a fan of LeBron James after James made fun of him during the trial.
I liked LeBron. And, then I’m like, ‘You know what, f*** you, LeBron.'”
There were several protests all over The United States after Rittenhouse’s not guilty verdict. Rittenhouse also recently stated he supports Black Lives Matter and is not a racist. We will have to wait and see whether his trial verdict will have severe ramifications or not.
