Kyle Rittenhouse isn’t holding back.

As I’m sure you’re familiar with by now, the Kenosha, Wisconsin teen was acquitted on all counts after being charged with murder (among other charges) in three shootings during last summer’s riots over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Rittenhouse claimed the shootings were in self-defense, and ultimately a jury agreed and he was found not guilty.

And now that he’s a free man, the teen is responding to some of those who have had things to say about him over the last year and a half.

During an interview last month with Tucker Carlson, Rittenhouse responded to an ad that then-presidential candidate Joe Biden put out that seemed to imply that Rittenhouse was a white supremacist:

“Mr. President, if I could say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you make a statement…

It’s actual malice defaming my character for him to say something like that.”

But Rittenhouse saved his harshest words yet for NBA superstar LeBron James.

After Rittenhouse broke down on the witness stand during his testimony, LeBron posted a meme mocking the teen:

During an interview on a recent episode of Elijah Schaffer’s You Are Here podcast, Rittenhouse addressed LeBron’s criticism, admitting that he actually used to be a Lakers fan… but isn’t anymore:

I was really pissed off when he said that because I liked LeBron and then I’m like, ‘You know what, fuck you LeBron.'”

Of course LeBron isn’t the only athlete to chime in on the case, with NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace tweeting after the verdict that if Rittenhouse had been black, “it would’ve been life.”

Wallace later expanded on his tweet, saying that he wasn’t trying to create division but was trying to show what others feel and see:
