With people all over the globe wrapped up in the events that unfolded on the night of the Kenosha unrest shooting.

As we know, Rittenhouse, who was seventeen at the time of the Kenosha unrest shooting, was accused of killing 2 men and severely injuring another…

Rittenhouse was armed with a rifle when he took to the streets amid a protest following the shooting of Jacob Blake by police, on August 25th, 2020.

Rittenhouse took the lives of thirty-six-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum, and twenty-six-year-old Anthony Huber, who reportedly tackled Rittenhouse to the ground in an attempt to “wrestle his rifle away.”

He also wounded twenty-seven-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz by shooting at him and severing his bicep.

Rittenhouse’s case has gained a large online following from both right and left wing political circles during the duration of his trial.

With the far-right branding him a “hero,” while others condemn his actions, calling him a “vigilante.”

Throughout his trial, his attorney Mark Richards, claimed he was acting in self defense…

And that he shouldn’t be reprimanded for the actions he was forced to take to protect himself against the three victims.

Rittenhouse shared his testimony stating that he had gone to Kenosha to offer medical aid to protestors…

“Did you come into downtown Kenosha looking for trouble?” He was asked as reported by NBC Chicago, to which he responded: “No.”

Not long after going into detail about the shooting, Rittenhouse broke down crying, resulting in the trial being posponed briefly…

But, after a short break, the trial resumed and Rittenhouse continued with his testimony.

As the trial continued, Rittenhouse told prosecutors that he “didn’t intend to kill them.”

“I intended to stop the people who were attacking me,” the teen said, adding that: “I did what I had to do to stop the person who was attacking me. Two of them passed away, but I stopped the threat from attacking me.”

After the trial finally came to a close, the state of Wisconsin began preparing itself for backlash no matter the verdict.

Over 500 National Guard troops were deployed to the area in order to support law enforcement in Kenosha.

Governor Tony Evers stated that they will be on standby, should law enforcement officers need them.

In a statement, he said: “I urge folks who are otherwise not from the area to please respect the community by reconsidering any plans to travel there and encourage those who might choose to assemble and exercise their First Amendment rights to do so safely and peacefully.”

After an exhausting few weeks, a decision was finally made on November 19 as Kyle Rittenhouse was cleared of all charges.

Rittenhouse was acquitted on the charges following the juror’s consideration on 5 felony counts.

The verdict is hugely controversial with many opinions massively divided by it.

While some are delighted that Rittenhouse has been found not guilty, many others have condemned it.

Among those condemning the verdict is many famous faces, including Colin Kaepernick who took to Twitter as he emphasized the “need to abolish our current system.”

“We just witnessed a system built on white supremacy validate the terroristic acts of a white supremacist. This only further validates the need to abolish our current system. White supremacy cannot be reformed,” the former footballer and activist, who first knelt during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial inequality in the US, tweeted.

Shortly after the verdict, Rittenhouse broke his silence as he discussed the jury’s decision.

In a video shared by Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Rittenhouse can be seen sitting inside a car as he says: “I believe they came to the correct verdict, and I’m glad everything went well. It’s been a rough journey, but we made it through it. We made it through the hard part.”

It has now been several weeks since Rittenhouse’s verdict was reached…

And he has been pretty busy.

Just days after the verdict, it was revealed that Rittenhouse’s trial has been filmed by Carlson Tucker for a documentary.

Then he stirred controversy after he appeared on Carlson Tucker’s show.

Rittenhouse has met with Donald Trump recently, too.

Trump revealed that he had met with Rittenhouse during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on November 23.

Speaking of what he thought of the Rittenhouse trial and their meeting, Trump revealed that he “got to know him a little bit” and that he thought that Rittenhouse “should not have had to suffer through a trial” BPR reports.

“He’s a really good young guy,” he added. “He’s eighteen years old, just left Mar-a-Lago a little while ago and he should never have been put through that. That was prosecutorial misconduct and it’s happening all over the United States right now with the Democrats.”

Following that, Rittenhouse, who had previously been studying nursing at Arizona State University via its online platform, announced his plans for education.

Rittenhouse has now said he’s ready to “re-enroll” into the nursing program, but this time, appear on campus.

“I just want to be a normal eighteen-year-old college student trying to better my future and get into a career in nursing,” he said.

However, it seems students at ASU are so disturbed by the possibility of Rittenhouse being allowed on campus, that they’re actually planning to get him kicked out…

The outraged students took to Twitter to share their list of demands to the university. The Twitter group, listed as a “socialist, revolutionary Marxist club,” invited fellow students to take part in a rally against “Killer Kyle.”

And now, the latest Rittenhouse controversy…

Rittenhouse has hit out LeBron James.

Before Rittenhouse was cleared of all charges, LeBron took to Twitter to accuse the teen of faking his tears on the witness stand.

“What tears?????” LeBron questioned. “I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”

And it seems that LeBron’s comment hasn’t gone unnoticed by Rittenhouse.

Speaking on You Are Here, Rittenhouse had a very strong message for LeBron…

Discussing LeBron’s comment on the show, Rittenhouse admitted he “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.”

What do you think of his message?
