LeBron James Under Fire After Ridiculing Kyle Rittenhouse

LeBron James Under Fire After Ridiculing Kyle Rittenhouse

(AbsoluteNews.com) – When Kyle Rittenhouse took the stand at his murder trial in his own defense on November 10, he recounted the August 2020 Kenosha shooting events through tears. While some felt for the teen’s obvious trauma and grief on display for all to see, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James took to Twitter and mocked the defendant.

In his tweet, the NBA player told the accused to knock it off, pointing out that he didn’t see one tear shed on the stand during testimony. LeBron feels the teen faked his sobbing.

Many responded to the social media post with anger and confusion, telling the basketball player to shut up while also saying he sits on the wrong side of every issue. Some of his fans asked why he didn’t have a bit more compassion and show better character.

Ohio Councilman Aaron Carpenter wanted to know why James thought it was okay to make fun of a person “dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).”

Others replied to Carpenter’s tweet, doubting Rittenhouse had the mental disorder at all and claiming he simply doesn’t want to go to jail. While people in camps on both sides wondered if Rittenhouse was truly crying on the stand, LeBron fans don’t seem to appreciate his two cents.
