“The media has attacked me from day one, and now it’s my turn to fight back,” Kyle Rittenhouse, an 18-year-old murderer, told the Washington Examiner.
On June 23rd, Rittenhouse announced on Twitter to unveil a new video game, with earnings going towards funding defamation against the media for how they covered his trial.
The tweet stated, “I am releasing a video game to fight back against the fake news! It’s called Kyle Rittenhouse’s TURKEY SHOOT. Go to RittenhouseGame.com and pre-order the game now!”
Rittenhouse kills two people, injuring one during Black Lives Matter Protest
On August 25, 2020, Rittenhouse, then a 17-year-old boy, shot and killed two people while injuring another at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The protest was honoring all the Black lives that were taken due to police brutality, especially days after the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. Rusten Sheske, a white police officer, shot Blake seven times, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. After the police officer who shot Blake was not arrested on federal charges, Americans became enraged, sparking protests worldwide.
During the third night of protests, Rittenhouse came armed with a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle to protect Kenosha businesses from looters and burglars. But, Rittenhouse did more than just guard businesses; in fact, he went on to shoot three white men. Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber died from the shooting, while Gaige Grosskreutz survived his injuries.
Rittenhouse shot Joseph Rosenbaum, a 36-year-old unarmed white man, who was chasing Rittenhouse and grabbed his rifle, prompting Rittenhouse to shoot him four times and kill Rosenbaum. However, Rittenhouse proved that he was not done with killing people yet. After hitting Rittenhouse with his skateboard, he went on to shoot and kill Anthony Huber, a 26-year-old man. Then, ending his rampage of terror with one more shooting, Rittenhouse struck Gaige Grosskreutz, a 26-year-old man armed with a handgun, in his right arm. Grosskreutz ended up surviving the shooting.
In November 2021, Rittenhouse faced first-degree intentional homicide and four other felony charges but ultimately would be released, as his lawyers claimed he was using self-defense under the Second Amendment.
This trial sparked controversy among many Americans, believing that Rittenhouse should have been convicted for the shootings.
Many conservatives were upset with the Black Lives Matter protests, supporting Rittenhouse and raising $2 million to cover his bail. As a result, citizens viewed Rittenhouse as an individual who made everything worse by inflicting violence by bringing a gun to the protest.
“Kyle Rittenhouse’s Turkey Shoot”
After beating his case, Rittenhouse created a game so individuals could experience what shooting is like. The game is called “Kyle Rittenhouse’s Turkey Shoot” and is available on pre-order for $9.99.
To promote his game, Rittenhouse released a video where he shoots the air with a Nerf gun while rap music plays in the background. Rittenhouse continues, “It’s the fake news turkey s–t. Got a laser gun going pew pew pew. Follow my suits. We about to bankrupt the fake news.”
In the video game, idiotic turkeys roam a grassy field, then cartoon Rittenhouse shoots the animals with slogans such as “fake news” and “MSDNC” painted on their bodies. The game has a timer to determine how many turkeys an individual can shoot in the destined time.
The profits will go towards Rittenhouse’s Media Accountability Project, an initiative that strives to file defamation lawsuits against the media who covered his trial back in 2021.
Collaborating with Mint Studios, one of the top publishers in mobile games, Mint Chip, CEO, told the Washington Examiner, “We had to step in to help Kyle after we saw what was done to him. Before the trial, you couldn’t even mention his name in a positive manner on social media without getting banned. The truth literally got you suspended. We fight for the truth.”
For the game trailer, Rittenhouse declares, “The media is nothing but a bunch of turkeys with nothing better to do than to push their lying agenda and destroy innocent people’s lives.” He said the game is a response to the hateful perception depicted by the media, further telling the Washington Examiner, “That’s why I’ve decided to launch the Kyle Rittenhouse Turkey Shoot video game and partner with Mint Studios to create a fun and interactive way to get everyone involved in holding the media accountable.”
With the upcoming release of the game, many people have mixed feelings about it. While some individuals believe that Rittenhouse should be in prison for murder, others are pleased that he got his charges dropped for self-defense. Regardless, Rittenhouse continues to make a name for himself in the same media outlets he claims to fight against.
So which Freedoms don’t you like? The one where you can protect yourself, or the one where you can arm yourself, incase you need to protect yourself? Oh you probably like the freedom to destroy other people’s property. Maybe the one where you can chase a person down and take their gun to shoot them. Perhaps you like the freedom where you hit someone with an object to harm them or worse. Just to let all the little woke college boys and girls know that your rights and freedoms stop when you infringe on others rights and freedoms. Seems like this would have been something you would have learned in that high dollar college you enrolled in. Instead there trying to figure what the definition of a woman is and teaching men can have abortions. By the way if he was a murderer he would be in jail. It’s that self defense thing you don’t like right. One day you’ll thank the founding fathers.
Here in Delaware we call DSU the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th grades. Good luck paying off your student loans with zero talent
You call him a murderer even though he was cleared on all charges. Some might take that as biased media. First lesson of journalism is to be unbiased in your reporting to deliver a story that doesn’t sway readers by changing facts and improper wording. Please stop writing articles until you understand that please.
This is not biased media, it is simply facts. Just because Rittenhouse was acquitted of murder does not make him not a murderer; that makes him not a convicted murderer. Therefore, understand the definition of murder before commenting, please.
Thank you, Sydney! Yes, he is a murderer. We have really bad Judges and court system.
So if you get accused of rape and get acquitted, you’re still a rapist?
Glad to know.
Exactly Syndey. Kyle Rittenhouse pulled the trigger that ended human life. That is called murder. The court not holding him criminally liable doesn’t change the fact that he ended someone’s life. This game of his is extremely poor taste and that little boy hasn’t learned anything from what he’s done, probably because he lives in an echo chamber telling him he was justified. The boy had no reason to be in Kenosha and his presence there is what created the series of events that ended human life. Had he no been there, those people would still be alive. Human life has higher value than property.

No, that is not murder. It is homicide. To be “murder”, the homicide has to be without legitimate reason. Defending yourself from aggressive attackers, and in due course killing them, is homicide — specifically Justifiable Homicide. Not “murder”.
If you don’t want to get shot don’t chase a person with a gun and try to wrestle it away from him (you don’t mention Rosenbaum was a convicted dangerous felon who told Rittenhouse shortly before the shooting that he was “going to kill him”.
When Rittenhouse was on the ground Grosskreutz Who does hands up and Rittenhouse pointed his weapon at the ground. Then Grosskreutz inexplicably went into his pocket and tried to draw a pistol and shoot Rittenhouse. So Rittenhouse shot first. What’s your problem with this? Why didn’t Grosskreutz Mind his business and just go elsewhere why was he pursuing Rittenhouse and directly confronting him? It was his testimony for the prosecution with that handed Rittenhouse the trial, “ I drew my pistol and tried to shoot him first“. End of story
And if you don’t wanna get shot, don’t run up behind someone with a gun and take a skate board and try to bash their head in. You might get shot it’s called self-defense.
No one who didn’t assault, or try and kill Kylie Rittenhouse was shot in that event. This was not a school shooting we’re some monster starts shooting innocent children.
Not one person who didn’t attack Kylie Rittenhouse was shot. That’s exactly what you’re supposed to do in self-defense not just fire wildly. And he tried to turn himself in right after. Even though he didn’t break the law at all in anyway.
Biden along with the media even a week after the event we’re claiming that he shot three black men knowing full well there wasn’t one black person shot. I think the game is stupid. And you can argue whether or not he should’ve been there or not. But if anyone watch that trial they saw scores of people go on and on he wasn’t medicine or intimidating he spent most of his time trying to help people that were injured, and scrubby graffiti off of buildings. A group of vandals tried to burn down a gas station, spotted him and thought he looked like someone else and ran after him to attack. What did you want him to do?
I agree he’s profiting off of it which I don’t like. He killed people who were trying to kill him. In addition they happen to be scum of the earth with extensive criminal records and violence in their backgrounds.
“Many conservatives were upset with the Black Lives Matter protests, supporting Rittenhouse and raising $2 million to cover his bail. As a result, citizens viewed Rittenhouse as an individual who made everything worse by inflicting violence by bringing a gun to the protest.”
Wow… great cause and effect. Did they teach you to write nonsensical garbage like this at DSU or is just a God given talent?
Aside from your literary incompetence, did it ever occur to you that maybe people donated towards his legal defense and bail as a result of (pay close attention to how this works Sydney from DSU) them viewing the abundance of videos online prior to removal (censorship of material that does not support the media’s narrative), clearly recognizing that this 17 year old boy faced death or serious bodily injury from a violent crowd of rioters, and acted in self defense? Then to top it off, the media tried to steamroll this kid for ratings and to satiate an angry mob, which encouraged continued support.
Sydney, change your major before it’s too late, journalism is clearly not for you. Hell, while you’re at it drop out of that absurdly ineffective school, they’re robbing you.
Tell the truth Tyreke. Heed the truth Sydney girl. Get out while you can.
You have less rights to defend yourself without a gun than you do with a gun now in Wisconsin . Thanks Kyle worthless FISH. The Judge and the defence lawyer here couldn’t even read the word algorithm so chim in about the blue hairs education if you want to knock someone down. Every negative photograph is the original photo so when develope the photo you now manipulated the original photo. Can the judge swallow that in analog terms if he can’t understand digital algorithms. Kyle raise his rifle before running. That evidence was not allowed and would of changed the course of this case. Along with him raising his rifle earlier in the night on other live feeds.
So this murderer puts himself into harm’s way to protect insures businesses that didn’t belong to him and kills 2 people and then get’s to profit from it?…..Got it
So Kyle’s affiliation with the Proud Boys isn’t even mentioned? Headline should have read “Racist seventeen year old runs amuck with high powered rifle two states away from home, kills unarmed people and gets away with it. ‘
I wish the writer would have omitted the website. Why advertise the URL for the Murder.
