(FreedomBeacon.com)- One of America’s most controversial figures who was acquitted of charges in connection with shooting three men has now released a video game in an effort to go after the media that smeared him.
Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of shooting and killing two men and injuring a third, in November 2021, after the teen defended himself against the attackers in the wake of the Kenosha riots that followed the shooting of Jacob Blake in August 2020. The 17-year-old who was reportedly in Kenosha to help defend businesses against rioters, shot and killed two men with an AR-15 after he was attacked, wounding a third who had attempted to fire at him with his pistol.
Rittenhouse was successfully acquitted of the charges; however, the media had unleashed an onslaught of attacks on the teenager from the moment the videos featuring Rittenhouse’s self-defense went viral. They slandered his name and falsely reported that he was a “white supremacist,” a malicious lie even pedaled by President Biden.
Since the acquittal, Rittenhouse has made several appearances on shows and conservative events, speaking out against the unfair treatment he received from the media, promising to sue them for their false and biased reporting that has even led to the teenager having a hard time enrolling into college.
But Rittenhouse has not given up on his promise to get back at the mainstream media and has released a video game in order to raise money to fund the lawsuits. The game, “Kyle Rittenhouse’s Turkey Shoot,” features Rittenhouse with a gun shooting turkey’s with “fake news” written on them.
A trailer was released to advertise the new game where Rittenhouse introduces himself as “the guy who was acquitted of all charges in the Kenosha self-defense case,” adding that he “did nothing wrong.”
He continues to narrate that because the media smeared his name, “It’s time to fight back against the fake news machine. This is why I’m launching the Kyle Rittenhouse Fake News Turkey Shoot video game.”
He told his followers to pre-order the game, which is available for $9.99.
“The media is nothing but a bunch of turkeys with nothing to do than push their lying agenda.”
While no suit has been filed, a lawyer from Mediaite’s sister site, Law and Crime, claimed that Rittenhouse has a “zero likelihood of winning” a defamation suit against the mainstream media.
