Kyle Rittenhouse has finally spoken up for the first time after being acquitted of all charges on Friday, November 19. The teenager was accused of murdering Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, Anthony Huber, 26, and injuring Gaige Grosskreutz, 28, on August 25, 2020, after protests began in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the shooting of Jacob Blake.

For the last year's incident, he was facing a number of charges that included first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18, and use of a dangerous weapon. But Rittenhouse was found "not guilty" of all these charges by the jury on November 19.

Now, Tucker Carlson has grabbed the first opportunity to interview Rittenhouse after the verdict. A  teaser for an upcoming documentary shared by him on Twitter showed the teen saying, “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.”



 

As soon as the clip of the documentary, scheduled to be released in December, was posted on the social media platform, people jumped to express their views. A user tweeted, “Have to say I don't like the immediate media interview. His right, but I don't like it.” Another one wrote, “So let me get this straight. You are seriously pretending not to be a propaganda network while LITERALLY releasing a propaganda ‘documentary’ immediately after his acquittal to shape an image around what a hero is?”



 



 

 

A person sarcastically stated, “Playboy this trial wasn’t even over for 3.5 seconds before you had this ‘documentary’ packed and ready for release.” However, some users who were happy with the verdict cheered for the documentary. One of them tweeted, “Thanks Tucker! Love Fox Nation, I can’t wait to watch. So incredibly happy and relieved for this young man. Better times ahead,” while another tweeted, “Thank you Kyle for standing up for your rights we the people are proud of you, when you stood, you stood for everyone who has been enslaved by evil power structures that attempt to enslave us all.”
