Kyle Rittenhouse plans to sue Whoopi Goldberg, others for ‘lies’ about him

February 24, 2022

Kyle Rittenhouse said he plans to sue Whoopi Goldberg, other celebrities and media companies for what he said are “lies” about him.

A Kenosha County jury ruled in November 2021 that Rittenhouse acted in self-defense when he shot three people, killing two during the unrest in Kenosha in August 2020.

Rittenhouse told Fox News Channel he launched a media accountability project to take individuals to court.

“Politicians, celebrities, athletes…Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list. She called me a murderer after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers,” Rittenhouse said. “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.”

There’s been no comment from Goldberg.
