Kyle Rittenhouse has put LeBron James on notice by warning that he will “deal” with the NBA star “in a courtroom.”
The teen hinted at looming lawsuits during a new interview on the show Frontlines, where he issued his warning to the Los Angeles Lakers player.
“I think everyone wants to know, what are your plans for LeBron James?” host Drew Hernandez asked Rittenhouse.
Rittenhouse said without missing a beat: “He’ll be getting a letter, too.”
Hernandez asked again to make sure he was hearing correctly, “LeBron James will be getting a letter, too?”
Rittenhouse fired back, “Anybody who defamed me, or lied about me, we’re just gonna send them a letter and then deal with them in a courtroom.”

As Slay News reported earlier, Rittenhouse also warned Whoopi Goldberg by name, as well as other celebrities and “politicians” like Joe Biden who called him a “murderer” and a “white supremacist.”
“Me and my team have decided to launch The Media Accountability Project as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the lies they said and deal with them in court,” Rittenhouse said.
“I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through.
“So I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me because I don’t want to see anybody have to go through what I went through,” he added.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson asked Rittenhouse, “You have a lot of potential targets to sue yourself, will you be suing any of these news organizations and if so, when?”
“Well, right now, we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list,” Rittenhouse said.
“She called me a ‘murderer’ after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that.”
He also mentioned The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur, who called Rittenhouse a “murderer” before the trial and “continues to call me a ‘murderer.’”
Goldberg said on the show after Rittenhouse was acquitted last November:
“He saw someone get shot.
“He thought he was doing the right thing.
“So, even – even all the excuses in the world does not change the fact that three people got shot.
“Two people were murdered.
“To me it’s murder. I’m sorry.”
