Kyle Rittenhouse Is Turning His Traumatic Experience Into A Lawsuit Against Whoopi Goldberg

Kyle Rittenhouse announced during an interview that he wants to go after The View’s Whoopi Goldberg and others for what they have said about him. While Rittenhouse made the media rounds after being acquitted for murder, he spoke about filing lawsuits against Whoopi Goldberg, among others, for comments they’ve made about him.

While there are plenty of stories that have circulated about Rittenhouse successfully suing Goldberg and others, including LeBron James, many of these stories originated from fictional news websites, and were then shared as actual news. In truth, Rittenhouse has started his own initiative, and its purpose is to go after certain public figures including celebrities and athletes for comments they have made about him. One person Rittenhouse has said he wants to go after is Whoopi Goldberg.

Kyle Rittenhouse Announces He Wants To Sue The View’s Whoopi Goldberg…

Kyle Rittenhouse has discussed his plans to sue celebrities, athletes, and others. Rittenhouse gained national publicity after his actions in Kenosha, WA.

Public figures and celebrities have been involved in controversies and scandals before, and like many others, Rittenhouse also became a much-discussed person on social media, talks shows and the news. Some defended his actions, while others were angry about what he had done.

After his acquittal for the murder of two protestors, Rittenhouse began a media tour. According to The Guardian, in one of his interviews, with Tucker Carlson, Rittenhouse announced his plans to launch an initiative to fight media “lies”, and Whoopi Goldberg.

It’s important to first note the difference between “lies” and “opinions”. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the definition of a lie is “to make an untrue statement with intent to deceive”. An opinion is defined as “a view, judgment, or appraisal formed in the mind about a particular matter.”

Rittenhouse said during his interview, “Me and my team have decided to launch the Media Accountability Project as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the lies they say and deal with them in court.”

Carlson then asked Rittenhouse if he would “be suing news organizations that maliciously lie about people who are in the news.” He responded, “Yes, sir. We’re going to be holding them accountable, Tucker.”

Rittenhouse added, “I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through. So I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me, because I don’t want to see anybody have to go through what I went through.”

During the interview, Rittenhouse mentioned they planned to be taking on numerous people, specifically mentioning “Whoopi Goldberg is on the list.”

Rittenhouse Is Suing Over ‘Lies”…
Kyle Rittenhouse wants to sue Whoopi Goldberg, among others, for what he says are lies that she has spread about him. But even though Goldberg called Rittenhouse a murderer after his acquittal, he might not get far in court against her, unless he’s willing to change the Bill of Rights he claims to defend.

Rittenhouse has become a spokesperson for some for America’s Second Amendment rights, which protects the right to bear arms. However, it seems he intends to sue others for their opinions, which are protected by the first amendment, which covers free speech.

Whoopi Goldberg has been involved in controversies before for comments she’s made. But even if The View host called Rittenhouse a murderer after his acquittal, it’s considered an opinion, as long as she doesn’t call him a “convicted murderer”.

According to The Guardian, Goldberg said this about Rittenhouse: “Even all the excuses in the world does not change the fact that three people got shot. Two people were murdered. To me, it’s murder. I’m sorry.”

Although Rittenhouse was acquitted on all charges, what he perceives as “media lies”, most consider opinions, which are protected by the first amendment in the U.S. constitution.

Former MSNBC anchor David Shuster tweeted, “The courts have long established that calling somebody a ‘murderer’ is an opinion and a legal right, even after the person is found ‘not guilty’.”

Shuster continued, “At that point, one can still call him a murderer, just not a ‘convicted murderer’. Nobody has called Rittenhouse that. He has no case.”

Rittenhouse has stated that he wants to hold accountable everyone who has, in his eyes, “lied about him.”

Rittenhouse Also Has Plans To Sue Others…
Kyle Rittenhouse announced his plans to sue other public figures and those in the media for what he perceives to be their lies against him. During his interview with Tucker Carlson, he also named Cenk Uygar, from The Young Turks.

Rittenhouse said, “Don’t forget Cenk [Uygar] from The Young Turks, he called me a murderer before I was acquitted, and continues to call me a murderer.”

According to the New York Post, Rittenhouse might want to sue LeBron James. He announced the creation of his Media Accountability Project, telling Tucker Carlson they were “looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes.”

He also said he would be taking on the President of the United States, Joe Biden. “We’re definitely going to be holding him accountable, too.” While several celebrities have thrown shade, Rittenhouse might want to sue an NBA star for an insult. Reportedly, Rittenhouse might even try to go after LeBron James, angry over the basketball star’s remark.

During Rittenhouse’s trial, James tweeted a picture of Rittenhouse, with the caption: “What tears???? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”

Rittenhouse said on The BlazeTV’s You Are Here show, “I really liked LeBron. And then I’m like, ‘You know what, f*** you, too.” According to Marca magazine, Rittenhouse said on the YouTube show Frontlines, “He’ll (LeBron James) be getting a letter, too. Anybody who defamed me, or lied about me, we’re just going to send them a letter and then deal with them in the courtroom.”

In order for Rittenhouse to be successful in court, the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution would have to be changed.
