(Headline USA) Kyle Rittenhouse revealed a new video game this week featuring a cartoon version of him shooting “fake news turkeys,” and encouraged people to purchase the game to support his defamation lawsuits.
The 19-year-old was acquitted of all charges by a jury last year after he shot and killed two rioters who were pursuing him during the 2020 Kenosha, Wisconsin, riots. He now plans to sue multiple high-profile figures, including NBA star LeBron James, for allegedly defaming him.
Proceeds from the game, called “Kyle Rittenhouse’s Turkey Shoot,” will help sponsor those lawsuits, he said.
“The media is nothing but a bunch of turkeys with nothing better to do than push their lying agenda and destroy innocent people’s lives,” Rittenhouse said in a promotional video.
I am releasing a video game to fight back against the fake news!
It’s called Kyle Rittenhouse’s TURKEY SHOOT.

In the video game, turkeys with slogans such as “fake news” and “MSDNC” roam around an open terrain. The player, a cartoon version of Rittenhouse, must try to shoot as many turkeys as possible in an allotted amount of time.
“We had to step in to help Kyle after we saw what was done to him,” said Mint Chip, the CEO of Mint Studios, the video game developer that partnered with Rittenhouse to create the game.
“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.”
Rittenhouse also launched the Media Accountability Project, an initiative to hold reporters and outlets responsible.
It’s time to hold the media accountable in court for their malicious lies, defamation and propaganda.
