The 18-year-old, who was found not guilty for his involvement in the Kenosha protest killings, is speaking out about the NBA star mocking his trial.
Rittenhouse stopped by BlazeTV to sound off on his feelings toward the baller after he made snarky remarks about him online.

During the trial, Rittenhouse took the stand and completely broke down in “tears.”
While some sympathized with the teenager, James had no mercy for the shooter.
He took to Twitter writing, “What tears???? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.
LeBron James didn’t buy Kyle’s trial tears
This tweet came in response to a video of Rittenhouse on the stand published by USA TODAY. Their caption to the video read, “Kyle Rittenhouse broke down in tears at his murder trial while on the witness stand as he described the events of Aug. 25, 2020 in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
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

As previously mentioned, Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges including the charges of killing two people and injuring another.
He is free to speak is mind and that he did.
“I was a Lakers fan too before he said that. I was really pissed off when he said that, because I liked LeBron and then I’m like you know what, F**k you, LeBron,” Rittenhouse said.

On Friday, November 19, The Blast reported that a hand-picked jury by Rittenhouse, found the teenager ‘not guilty’ of use of a dangerous weapon, first-degree intentional homicide with use of a dangerous weapon, attempted first-degree intentional homicide with the use of a dangerous weapon, and two counts of recklessly endangering safety with the use of a dangerous weapon.
The NOT GUILTY verdict came after a two-week trial that begged to answer the question, “Was Rittenhouse acting in self-defense when he fatally shot two people and wounded another during civil unrest?” The jury deliberated for 26 hours and finally came to their ‘not guilty’ verdict.
While many people across the US celebrated the verdict and his freedom, many others were appalled by the entire trial and justice system.
Rittenhouse was reportedly enrolled as a “non-degree seeking student” online despite saying he wants to become a nurse during the trial.
An ASU spokesperson confirmed with 12 News on Monday, November 29, Rittenhouse has not gone through the ASU admissions process, and “university records show that he is not currently enrolled in any classes at ASU.”
