Kyle Rittenhouse had some strong words for four-time NBA champion LeBron James after being acquitted of murder charges in November.
On Monday, Rittenhouse appeared on BlazeTV’s You Are Here. During the show, the 18-year-old man responded to a question about LeBron’s tweet that seemingly mocked him crying as he testified during the trial in the Kenosha, Wisconsin shooting case.
The teen responded, “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.”
Before Rittenhouse’s acquittal, LeBron took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the defendant’s alleged performance on the witness stand.
“What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man, knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”

The tweet attracted the white tears brigade and they appeared to be hellbent on correcting the successful athlete.
LeBron hasn’t commented on Rittenhouse’s thoughts, but it’s probably safe to say that he’s not checking for him.
Last month, the teen was acquitted on all charges. The jury of 13 found him not guilty on all counts. He was accused of killing two men- Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36.
