Mr Rittenhouse, 18, has appeared in several TV interviews, having been acquitted of two counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and two counts of recklessly endangering security. On August 25, Mr Rittenhouse shot and killed two people in self-defense during a Wisconsin protest.
Regarding the NBA star’s remarks on Eliza Schaefer and Sidney Watson’s podcast, Mr. Rittenhouse said, “I was a Lakers fan even before he said that.” you are here, Mr Rittenhouse said, “When he said that, I was really pi**ed off, because I liked LeBron and then I’m like, you know what the f**k you LeBron is.”
The juvenile’s trial sparked a heated debate around the world about gun laws, the right to self-defense, and what should be regarded as violent vigilantism.
Mr Rittenhouse also acknowledged on the podcast that it was not the wisest decision to travel to Wisconsin on the night of the protest, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
“Well, from a 20/20 point of view, it’s probably not the best idea to go down there,” Rittenhouse said. “Can’t change it. But I defended myself and that’s what happened.”
Since his trial, Rittenhouse has been idolized by aspects of the political right, has met with former President Donald Trump, has been offered an internship in politics, and has even met with Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene. Said Kishor deserves Congress’s gold medal.
However, President Joe Biden said he felt “angry and concerned” over the decision of Rittenhouse’s trial, but said he respected the court’s decision. “While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, including me, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken,” read a White House statement from the president.
