Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who was acquitted of murder charges last year, announced a new video game on Thursday in which a player can shoot fake news turkeys.
Players can purchase the game for $9.99 on Rittenhouse’s website. The proceeds will go towards funding his efforts to sue media outlets for defamation.
“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,” he said in a promotional video for the game before shooting down ‘fake news’ turkeys with a Nerf gun.
If that wasn’t traumatic enough, the video also features a rap song that appears to be performed by Rittenhouse himself: “Fake news turkey shoot, got a laser gun going pew, pew, pew. Follow my suits. We about to bankrupt the Fake News.”
According to the New York Post, the game was created in collaboration with video game developer Mint Studios, whose CEO said they decided to help Rittenhouse “after we saw what was done to him.”
Rittenhouse was charged with first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide for fatally shooting two men, Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injuring a third during protests in Kenosha, Wis. in August 2020, following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
Rittenhouse claimed he acted in self-defense and was acquitted of all charges by a jury last year.
