The teen, who will be attending Texas' Blinn College in the fall, tweeted that his new video game is intended 'to fight back against the fake news!'
'Hi. I'm Kyle Rittenhouse. You might know me as the guy who was recently acquitted from all charges in the Kenosha self-defense case,' the teen says in a promotional video for his new digital game. 'From the very beginning, I did nothing wrong. But that didn't stop the media from smearing my name.'
'It's time to fight back against the fake news machine. This is why I'm launching... The Kyle Rittenhouse Fake News Turkey Shoot video game. The media is nothing but a bunch of turkeys with nothing better to do than to push their lying agenda and destroy innocent people's lives.
'So go to RittenhouseGame.com and pre-order the game now and help me FUND the lawsuits to stop these fake news turkeys!,' he added.
