The young man who shot three rioters in self-defense during the 2020 Kenosha riots in Wisconsin is calling out basketball player LeBron James, who mocked the young man’s tearful recounting of the incident.
Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot three men attempting to take his life while he provided medical aid and fire suppression during the riots, may have been deemed guilty in the “court of mainstream opinion,” but was ultimately found not guilty of all charges in real court.
This didn’t stop several high-profile individuals of making various statements, ranging from spreading erroneous details about the incident to labeling the young man a “white supremacist.”
One detractors was LeBron James, who accused Rittenhouse -who had no prior military service or significant firearms training- from breaking down in tears as he recounted the incident in which he had to take two human lives to save his own.
“What tears?” LeBron tweeted. “I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”
Rittenhouse, who is now an adult but was 17 at the time of the incident, was disappointed in a man he used to support.
“I was really p*d off when he said that because I liked LeBron, and then I’m like, you know what, f you, LeBron,” Rittenhouse said on a podcast.

According to the Daily Mail, podcast co-host Sydney Watson also jumped on the “f*** LeBron” train.
“You have to give the man credit. It took all four of his brain cells to construct that tweet,” he said.
Rittenhouse is currently looking to attend Arizona State University as his attorneys prepare to go after media outlets, celebrities and government officials who slandered him during the trial.
