Kyle Rittenhouse was a Lebron fan until James made that ridiculous comment about him during the trial. Here’s how Rittenhouse responded to it:
DAILY CALLER – Prior to the teenager being acquitted on all charges on his self-defense shooting case in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the four-time NBA champion accused Rittenhouse of faking his tears while on the witness stand.
Well, Rittenhouse certainly didn’t forget King James’ stupid tweet.
What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court. 🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/LKwYssIUmD

“I was a Lakers fan too before he said that. I was really pissed off when he said that because I liked LeBron, and then I’m like, you know what, f**k you, LeBron,” Rittenhouse said while appearing on “You Are Here” when asked about LeBron’s infamous tweet.
Rittenhouse also suggested that if he had it all to do over, he wouldn’t go to Kenosha again, suggesting it wasn’t the best idea:
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,” said Rittenhouse on The Blaze’s You Are Here, hosted by Elijah Schaffer and Sydney Watson.
“Everyone should be able to defend themselves,” added Rittenhouse. “I think it’s a God-given right, the right to self-defense. That’s what was on trial in Wisconsin, the right to self-defense.”
Rittenhouse’s mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, told CBS News toward the end of her son’s trial, “If he had to do it all over again, he probably would not go down to Kenosha. Kyle’s nature is to help people.” When asked if her son regrets going to the Wisconsin town on that dangerous and fateful night, she replied, “Yeah, he does.”
