Kyle Rittenhouse has used an anti-Biden meme to troll basketball legend LeBron James months after the athlete criticised him for crying in court.
Rittenhouse, who fatally shot two men and wounded a third in 2020 after he brought a rifle to Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was acquitted on all charged after a jury deemed he had acted in self-defence.
His trial was incredibly polarising, with many right-wingers praising his acquittal while some on the left denounced it as a miscarriage of justice.
Some famous figures also weighed in on the trial, with James among those who mocked Rittenhouse bursting into tears while on trial, saying 'that boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court'.
No, it’s not Lemon Heads.. it’s the burning hole in my pocket thanks to a Joe Biden presidency.. 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/UpPvfHEjRv— Kyle Rittenhouse (@ThisIsKyleR) March 18, 2022
Although that was months ago, it seems as as Rittenhouse hasn't forgotten James's tweet about him as he shared a meme mocking US president Joe Biden, as per TMZ.
The meme shows footage of Rittenhouse blubbering on the witness stand with a fuel station overlaid, so it looks like he's having a breakdown about gas prices, something right-wingers in the US have often used to criticise the President.
Gas prices in the US have reached record highs during the Biden presidency, though according to Forbes the reason is because a collapse in the demand for fuel during the Covid-19 pandemic lowered the US's oil production, which has not caught up to the bounce back in demand.
Meanwhile, sanctions on Russia in the wake of Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine have cut off another source of oil and driven prices even higher.
Still, being in charge when things go wrong is a good way to get blamed for something even if it isn't your fault, and high fuel prices have been a popular stick for critics of Biden to beat him with.
What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court. 🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/LKwYssIUmD— LeBron James (@KingJames) November 11, 2021
This is not the first time Rittenhouse has hit out at James, as last month the Daily Mail reported he was suing the LA Lakers star for defamation.
Rittenhouse has said he was a Lakers fan before James criticised him, and he intents to bring lawsuits against those he believes slandered him during his trial.
He has said he wants to hold those he claims slandered him 'accountable', and other figures he may choose to target include Whoopi Goldberg for calling him a 'murderer' and president Biden for describing him as a 'white supremacist'.
