Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen who was found not guilty on all charges in the shooting deaths of two protesters, and the injury of another during a night of rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has a little message for one certain outspoken NBA star.
Joining The Blaze’s You Are Here podcast with Elijah Schaffer and Sydney Watson, he discussed the ordeal he endured as the result of his decision to travel to Kenosha and help out during the protests that led to an intense confrontation resulting in his arrest, as well as a very public trial.
During the discussion, LeBron James’ infamous “What tears?” tweet was discussed, and Rittenhouse was finally able to respond.
“What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court,” he basketballer tweeted.

“I was a Lakers fan too before he said that,” Rittenhouse explained. “I was really pissed off when he said that because I liked LeBron, and then I’m like, you know, f*ck you, LeBron.”
Later in the podcast, he freely admitted that choosing to go to an area where unrest was highly likely to occur was “not the best idea” but said ultimately that while he was the one in the courtroom, the right to self-defense was actually on trial.
“Hindsight being 20/20, probably not the best idea to go down there. Can’t change that, but I defended myself and that’s what happened. Everyone should be able to defend themselves. I think it’s a God-given right, the right to self-defense. That’s what was on trial in Wisconsin, the right to self-defense.”

Good for him. LeBron is a bully.

LeBron James is an uneducated, semi-literate buffoon who mouths the opinions given to him by his puppet masters. If wealthy athletes like LeBron or Kaepernick want to complain about slavery, first let me hear them speak on China or the Middle East where it is still in practice.
