Kyle Rittenhouse Unveils New Mobile Game Where You Shoot 'Fake News Turkeys'

Kyle Rittenhouse Unveils New Mobile Game Where You Shoot 'Fake News Turkeys'

The 19-year-old is suing media outlets for defamation, and he's using proceeds from the game to fund his lawsuits.

Kyle Rittenhouse has announced he's releasing a new video game in which you can shoot ‘fake news turkeys’.

And boy, the promotional video is really something. 

The 19-year-old was acquitted after fatally shooting two men and injuring another during a 2020 protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where Rittenhouse pleaded self-defence. 

He is claiming that the media smeared his name throughout the trial and is now suing media outlets for defamation.

In order to fund these legal cases, he's planning on using the proceeds from the video game to help fund his case.

In the most bizarre video game promotion you will probably ever see, Rittenhouse attempts to tear into ‘fake news’, armed with a Nerf gun and the oddest rap known to man.

In the video, he says: “Hi, I’m Kyle Rittenhouse, you might know me as the guy who was recently acquitted from all charges in the Kenosha self-defence case.

“From the very beginning, I did nothing wrong. But that didn’t stop the media from smearing my name.”

He continues: “It’s time to fight back against the fake news machine. This is why I’m launching the Kyle Rittenhouse Fake News Turkey Shoot video game.”

Queue cringe backing music, and a highlight reel of video-game Kyle shooting at some turkeys.

Honestly, considering the pain that the shooting victims’ families have gone through, how tone-deaf can one be?

He added his speech: “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.”

If this wasn’t enough to make you cringe, somehow it gets worse, as a rap song plays out which appears to be sung by Rittenhouse himself.

“It’s the fake news turkey suit. Got a laser gun going pew pew pew. Follow my suits. We about to bankrupt the fake news,” the song says.

I think that’s enough of the internet for today.

The game is being developed by Mint Studios, and the company's CEO, Mint Chip, told the Washington Examiner: “We had to step in to help Kyle after we saw what was done to him.

"Before the trial, you couldn’t even mention his name in a positive manner on social media without getting banned.

"The truth literally got you suspended. We fight for the truth.”

If you want to purchase this dumpster fire of a game it’s going for $9.99.
