Kyle Rittenhouse has fired back at NBA star LeBron James after the basketball player mocked the teenager’s tearful testimony during his murder trial last month.
Rittenhouse, 18, was acquitted on all charges stemming from a self-defense shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last year.
Appearing on the “You Are Here” podcast, Rittenhouse settled a score with LeBron James.
The NBA star wrote on Twitter: “What tears? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off!
“That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”

Speaking with podcast co-hosts Sydney Watson and Elijah Schaffer Rittenhouse fired back saying: “I was really pissed off when he said that because I liked LeBron, and then I’m like, you know what, f*** you, LeBron.”
Watson said: “You have to give the man credit. It took all four of his brain cells to construct that tweet.”
Rittenhouse continued saying he was not a hero:
“I don’t think I did anything heroic; I just defended myself.
“Well, hindsight being 20/20, probably not the best idea to go down there.
“Can’t change that. But I defended myself and that’s what happened.
“We’re just having it destroyed,” Rittenhouse said of the rifle.
“I think that’s the best thing, and that’s what I want to do with it,” he said.
Kyle also said he wants to go to law school because, “I want to go against corrupt piece of s*** prosecutors like Thomas Binger, and put them in their place and make sure they never practice law again.”
