Kyle Rittenhouse told Tucker Carlson on Monday night that he is looking into suing co-host of “The View” Whoopi Goldberg as well as online political commentator Cenk Uygur for comments they made about him regarding his homicide trial in Kenosha, Wisconsin in 2021.
According to Rittenhouse, both Goldberg and Uygur have called him a murderer, even after Rittenhouse was ultimately found not guilty after he was accused of murdering two men during the summer of 2020 during a protest that evolved into a riot.
“We’re 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 to still say that,” Rittenhouse responded.
Athletes may include LeBron James, who in a Tweet accused Rittenhouse of facking tears during his testimony. Since then Rittenhouse has tweeted back “f*%k you LeBron.”
Rittenhouse also said that he is going to “absolutely” hold individuals who called him a white supremacist “accountable.” That portion of the interview can be seen here:
As The Daily Wire reported earlier on Monday night, Rittenhouse also announced his new organization “The Media Accountability Project” — a group that will be used to hold “members of the media accountable” for lies and defamation similar to what Rittenhouse endured before, during, and after.
