Kyle Rittenhouse has hit back at LeBron James for mocking the emotional testimony that he gave during his homicide trial.
NBA star James poked fun at Kyle after the youngster broke down in tears while on the stand by suggesting that Kyle was acting.
What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court. 🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/LKwYssIUmD

The comments, which were Tweeted to James’ 50.5 million followers, sparked an outrage online with Kyle’s supporters immediately launching criticism at the 36-year-old.
While appearing on BlazeTV’s ‘You Are Here’ show, Kyle was asked what he thought about the dig from James.
“I was a Lakers fan too before he said that,” said Kyle.”I was really pissed off when he said that because I liked LeBron, and then I’m like, you know, ‘F*** you, LeBron!'”
It was arguably the best interview Kyle has given so far. While it was an informal and fun environment, Kyle didn’t allow himself to fall into the trap of laughing about the demise of 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum and 26-year-old Anthony Huber.
Co-host Sydney Watson had commented that it was “kind of impressive” that “of all the people that you shot at, you killed probably two of the worst on the planet” and subsequently congratulated him. Kyle was quick to respond by saying it was “nothing to be congratulated about” and that if he could go back, he wished he “would never have had to take somebody’s life.”
During the interview, the BLM obviously came up for discussion and Kyle reiterated that he didn’t object to the movement. “I think we can all agree that we all support the message behind BLM, yes we all support that, but we don’t support the rioting and looting,” he said.
