On Thursday, LeBron James blasted Kyle Rittenhouse for crying on the stand during his murder trial, writing on Twitter, “Man knock it off.”
The Los Angeles Lakers star tweeted his thoughts in response to courtroom footage that showed Rittenhouse breaking down into tears on the witness stand as he described the events of Aug. 25, 2020 in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court,” James tweeted along with the crying laughing emoji.
Teen Mom alumni Jenelle Evans did not appreciate what she saw from LeBron, so she took to Twitter and blasted him for mocking the young shooter’s dramatic performance in court. The 29-year-old claims that James shouldn’t have spoken about a minor, despite what he did on that fateful night.
She has since made her Twitter account private after receiving massive criticism. Unfortunately for her, she got dropped from her clothing deal after attacking LeBron James for his Kyle Rittenhouse comments.
“Been crying all morning. Sorry to let everyone’s hopes up, but @sewsewyou has dropped me because of haters,” she wrote in the caption.
Rittenhouse faces six criminal charges in connection with the deaths of Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber, and the injury of Gaige Grosskreutz.
