Kenosha Big Iron Kyle Rittenhouse has stated that Johnny Depp’s court victory over Amber Heard is further pushing him to pursue defamation suits against high-profile individuals who defamed him despite his acquittal. 

Rittenhouse was acquitted of all five charges, including first-degree intentional homicide. Despite his acquittal, Rittenhouse has been called a murderer by Joe Biden, multiple media posts and articles, and celebrities.

The Media Matters Project seeks to raise funds to challenge and prosecute those who defamed Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse named “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg and “The Young Turks” founder Cenk Uygur as individuals to sue for blatant defamation.

Rittenhouse’s Twitter page pins a tweet stating, “It’s time to hold the media accountable in court for their malicious lies, defamation, and propaganda.”

Kyle’s Twitter also recently posted a tweet announcing that The Media Accountability Project will take on Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg for blatant defamation. 

Kyle posted a video of him and his legal team announcing legal action against media and Big Tech and that they will “think twice before defaming another kid.”

The legal action against the media and big tech bears similarities to similar defamation cases against Nick Sandmann. Sandmann and NBC reached a settlement, but the size of the settlement remained confidential.

With any luck, Rittenhouse will keep the trend of holding the big guys accountable and score large settlements against people like Whoopi Goldberg and Cenk Uygur so that they will be far more hesitant to push blatantly false narratives.
