Kyle Rittenhouse Slams Media Hypocrisy over Jussie Smollett Sentencing

Kyle Rittenhouse has spoken out to blast the double standards of the media over the response to the sentencing of disgraced Hollywood actor Jussie Smollett.

Earlier this week, Smollett was sentenced to 150 days in the notorious Cook County Jail and hit with fines and probation.

“The media called me a white supremacist from the start and instantly called Jussie Smollett innocent,” Rittenhouse said of his own case, where he was found not guilty on all charges.

“I’m thankful our justice system in America doesn’t work like the dishonest media; who refused to get the answers before declaring the innocent guilty and the guilty innocent.

“It’s time for the news to stop peddling fake narratives for ratings.

“People deserve the TRUTH.”

Cook County Judge James Linn was appalled by Smollett’s action and didn’t hold back during sentencing, saying:

“You have another side of you that is profoundly arrogant and selfish and narcissistic.

“That’s the only thing that can be concluded.

“You turned your life upside down by your misconduct and shenanigans.

“There’s nothing that any sentencing judge can do to you that would compare to the damage you’ve already caused yourself.

“For you to now sit here, convicted of hoaxing hate crimes, racial hate crimes, and homophonic hate crimes, the hypocrisy is just astounding.

“You knew this was a country that was slowing trying to heal past injustices and current injustices and trying to make a better future for each other.

“And it was a hard road.

“You took some scabs off some healing wounds, and you ripped them apart for one reason – you wanted to make yourself more famous, and for a while, it worked.

“That bad side of you came out during the course of all these events.

“There’s a side of you that has this arrogance, and selfishness and narcissism that’s just disgraceful.

“You’re not a victim of a racial hate crime, you’re not a victim of a homophobic hate crime.

“You’re just a charlatan pretending to be a victim of a hate crime, and that’s shameful,” the judge said,

After learning his fate, Smollett erupted in a temper tantrum in court, saying: “Your honor, I respect you and I respect the jury, but I did not do this.

“And I am not suicidal. And if anything happens to me when I go in there, I did not do it to myself. And you must all know that.”

Defense attorney Nenye Uche said he disagreed with the jury’s verdict and that the defense would appeal and win in appellate court.

“He (Smollett) is 100% confident that this will be reversed on appeal,” Uche said.

“At the end of the day, we believe justice will prevail.

“We don’t believe it was done (in December) but we’re very confident that he will be cleared and he will be found to be innocent.”
