LeBron James has had absolutely nothing to say in the hours since Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all charges in Kenosha. The jury said Rittenhouse, now 18, acted in self-defense and was justified when he shot three men, killing two of them.
- Count 1: First-degree reckless homicide in the death of Joseph Rosenbaum
- Count 2: First-degree recklessly endangering safety
- Count 3: First-degree recklessly endangering safety
- Count 4: First-degree intentional homicide OR second-degree intentional homicide OR first-degree reckless homicide in the death of Anthony Huber
- Count 5: Attempted first-degree intentional homicide OR attempted second-degree intentional homicide OR recklessly endangering safety in the shooting of Gaige Grosskreutz
- Each count carries a descriptor that Rittenhouse committed the crimes with a dangerous weapon
It was just last week when LeBron took to Twitter and posted a series of laughing emojis alongside footage of the 18-year-old as he broke down while on the stands recalling the events from that fateful night.
“What tears????? I didn’t see one,” wrote James.
“Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court,” the Los Angeles baller wrote on his @KingJames account, ending with the three laughing emojis.
Fast forward to Friday and The King has been quiet on social media. Unfortunately for him, there are plenty who have a lot to say to him, and that includes Candace Owens.
She took to Twitter and posted a picture of the Lakers superstar crying as Rittenhouse wipes his tears away, clearly a reference that LeBron is sad about the verdict.
All charges were dismissed with prejudice, meaning Rittenhouse can not be charged again.
