Kyle Rittenhouse says he is suing media outlets for ‘lies’ he said were spread about him.

“Me and my team have decided to launch the Media Accountability Project,” Rittenhouse told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, “as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the lies they say and deal with them in court.”

Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges for a 2020 shooting that left two people dead and one person injured. The now 19-year-old pleaded self-defense in the deadly Kenosha shooting that became a flashpoint in the debate over guns, vigilantism and racial injustice in the U.S.

He had been charged with homicide, attempted homicide and reckless endangerment after killing two men and wounding a third with an AR-style semi-automatic rifle.

Since his acquittal, Kyle Rittenhouse has gone on a celebrity tour appearing on right-wing talk shows and being invited to political conferences.

Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, praised Kyle Rittenhouse, telling him: “You’re a hero to millions, it’s an honor to be able to have you.”

Kyle Rittenhouse to sue for ‘lies’

Appearing on Fox News speaking to Tucker Carlson, Kyle Rittenhouse said “we are looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg is 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, and there’s others.”

The teen claims he’s launched a company called Media Accountability Project to help with lawsuits against media outlets.

Goldberg is a co-host of The View on ABC. She said of Kyle Rittenhouse, “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.”

It remains doubtful whether the act of suing media outlets would be deemed credible in a court of law.

It seems that Kyle Rittenhouse and his team are poised to move forward with the lawsuits. So far, none have been filed at the time of publication of this article.
