Kyle Rittenhouse announced on Fox News Channel that he plans on suing a number of high profile broadcasting companies and media celebrities who slandered him in the aftermath of the Kenosha, Wisconsin riots.
The Media Accountability Project will raise money for legal challenges against outlets Rittenhouse believes defamed him during his trial and hold them “accountable” more broadly.
“We are looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg is on the list. She called me a murderer after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that, and there’s others,” he said before noting Cenk Uygur from the Young Turks is also on his radar.
A Wisconsin jury in November acquitted Rittenhouse of all charges in connection to a shooting that left two men dead and a third injured.
