NBA star LeBron James was heavily trolled on Twitter after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges on Friday, November 19, including the killing of two men at a Kenosha protest last year. Earlier this month, LeBron James chose to mock Rittenhouse after he broke down on the stand at the Kenosha County Courthouse on November 10, 2021.

While recounting the events of August 25. "What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court," James retweeted a USA Today tweet about Rittenhouse's breakdown at the time. He also added three laughing face emojis to that tweet. His mockery naturally got a lot of people talking. Within hours, the tweet had over 36,000 retweets, 242,000 likes, and hundreds of comments, with most of them agreeing with him.

However, the tables have now turned and James is being trolled by social media users for attacking the teen on Twitter after his acquittal. Memes of his crying flooded Twitter mocking the star's earlier reaction to Rittenhouse's breakdown in court. 

"I want to live in a country where Kyle Rittenhouse is seen as a hero and Lebron James is seen as a communist traitor," one of them said. One more quipped, "LeBron James CRYING to HIS Chinese MASTERS about the Kyle Rittenhouse case!!" The next remarked, "[email protected] is Salty AF that #KyleRittenhouse has WAY more street cred then him. It’s cool, no big deal your an American icon. But the streets respect Rittenhouse more then you and it clearly bothers you. I was shocked you were hating on a kid, but then it hit me. #Patriot" One more added, "Kyle Rittenhouse is Not Guilty. I guess LeBron James is the one crying now."



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

There were also those who urged Rittenhouse to sue James. "Kyle Rittenhouse should sue @KingJames for 200 million for publicly accusing him of lying under oath and fake crying.. Don't let this Chinese puppet get away," one of them said, while another noted, "Now is time for #KyleRittenhouse to sue @KingJames #LeBronJames. We will be donating money if needed for the court expenses. I hope they are doing well."
