Kenosha hero Kyle Rittenhouse said that he and his newly founded Media Accountability Project plan to sue NBA star Lebron James for defaming him during his high-profile murder trial last year, the Daily Wire reported.
Rittenhouse, who was acquitted, announced earlier in the week that he was moving forward with a series of defamation lawsuits against leftist media outlets and individuals, including View co-host Whoopi Goldberg.
On the first episode of Turning Point USA’s “Frontlines” talk show, host Drew Hernandez asked Rittenhouse about his team’s legal strategy.
“I think everyone wants to know: what are your plans for LeBron James?,” Hernandez asked.
“He’ll be getting a letter, too,” Rittenhouse responded.
Accusing Rittenhouse of being disingenuous on the witness stand, James mocked the 18-year-old for his emotional display as prosecutors forced him to relieve the traumatic 2020 riot during which he killed two violent, unhinged Antifa assailants in self-defense.
What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court. 🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/LKwYssIUmD

James has a track record of automatically attributing racist motives to white citizens and police officers.
He stoked the idea that white Americans will not let black Americans live their day-to-day lives without fear.
“We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!” James wrote in a tweet.
Rittenhouse said he founded TMAP to hold everyone accountable who slandered or libeled him by falsely calling him a killer or murderer.
“Anybody who defamed me, or lied about me, we’re just gonna send them a letter and then deal with them in a courtroom,” he said.
He said he believes in the statement, “Black lives matter.”
“I support black lives mattering,” he told Hernandez. “I support black lives matter—they do matter.”
Rittenhouse said he cannot express the same support for Black Lives Matter, a Marxist organization that seeks to abolish the traditional family, prisons, and police.
The organization currently is under investigation for having defrauded donors out of millions in donations that can no longer be accounted for.
