Kyle Rittenhouse is launching a video game to fundraise for his legal battles against media outlets and public figures that have slandered and libeled him.
In the game, called Kyle Rittenhouse’s TURKEY SHOOT, players will be tasked with shooting “the Fake News turkeys that attack Kyle to get the highest score, compete with friends and unlock new levels!”
“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,” Rittenhouse said in a video announcing the 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’s turkey shoot video game.”
Rittenhouse continued, “the media is nothing but a bunch of turkeys with nothing better to do than push their lying agenda and destroy innocent people’s lives.”
I am releasing a video game to fight back against the fake news!
It’s called Kyle Rittenhouse’s TURKEY SHOOT.

The simple point-and-shoot Duck Hunt style game features Rittenhouse shooting turkeys with “fake news” written on them.
Rittenhouse asked supporters to go to the website and buy the game, which can be pre-ordered for $9.99.
Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight in February, Rittenhouse also announced that he intends to sue Cenk Uyghur, Whoopi Goldberg, and others who defamed him — both before and after his acquittal.
TUCKER: “Will you be suing any news organizations?”

“I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through. So I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me, because I don’t want to see anybody have to go through what I went through,” Rittenhouse said during the interview.
“We’re going to hold everybody who lied about me accountable, such as everybody who lied called me a White supremacist,” Rittenhouse continued. “They’re all going to be held accountable. And we’re going to handle them in a courtroom.”
Rittenhouse fatally shot Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and shot and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz, 26, during a riot in Kenosha in August 2020. A jury determined that the teenager was acting in self-defense and he was found not guilty across the board.
