Kyle Rittenhouse, who was recently acquitted in the fatal shootings of two protesters in Kenosha in 2020, announced this week he is launching a media accountability initiative and may sue celebrities who spread false information about him before and during his trial.
Rittenhouse appeared on Fox News for an interview with Tucker Carlson on Monday and detailed the new Media Accountability Project, which aims to hold media personalities accountable for saying negative or untrue things about him in public.
“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.
The teen singled out some celebrities being targeted by the new initiative, saying, “…right now, we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list,” she called me a ‘murderer’ after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that.”
“We are going to hold everybody who’s lied about me accountable,” Rittenhouse said. “Such as…everybody’s who’s lied, called me a white supremacist. They’re all gonna be held accountable and we’re going to handle them in a courtroom.”
