Hours after Kyle Rittenhouse broke down at the stand and cried in front of a crowded courtroom … James lebron trolled the 18-year-old, accusing the Kenosha shooter of putting on a show.
“What tears ?????” the LA Lakers superstar said in a social media post. “I haven’t seen any. Dude, let go!”
The NBA player then took the mockery a step further… by adding three laughing emojis and writing, “That boy ate lemon heads before he entered court.”
Rittenhouse was on the stand trying to convince a courtroom that he acted in self-defense when he shot people during a demonstration in August 2020 in Wisconsin.
The teenager – who has been the subject of several criminal charges, including two counts of homicide – said: “I did nothing wrong. I stood up for myself.”
Yet at one point during his testimony he became so moved as he tried to explain his actions…
Rittenhouse broke down in front of the microphone – forcing a short break in the proceedings – but James clearly believed it was a ruse to try and gain sympathy.
The rest of the Rittenhouse hearing, meanwhile, also featured some drama … with the judge in the courtroom berating prosecutors for how they questioned Rittenhouse.
Officials had questioned Rittenhouse about an incident the judge had previously ruled would not be allowed into evidence … and after objection from Rittenhouse’s lawyers, the judge Bruce schröder exploded.
“You know very well that a lawyer cannot get into these kinds of areas when the judge has already ruled without asking outside the presence of the jury to do so,” said the judge, accusing the prosecutor of “s ‘be cheeky’ with him. .
Rittenhouse’s attorneys have asked to quash the trial.
Legal proceedings are expected to resume on Thursday.
