Kyle Rittenhouse announces new video game to shoot ‘Fake News’

Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot dead two unarmed men during a racial justice rally in 2020, is releasing a video game that allows players to shoot turkeys that symbolize the media.

Rittenhouse has been acquitted of murder for the shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and has become a celebrated figure in right-wing media. His new game – which was announced on Thursday amid a call for gun laws in the wake of mass shootings – features “fake news turkeys” labeled “fake news” and “MSDNC”.

In a promotional video placed on Twitter, Rittenhouse claims that “The media is nothing but a bunch of turkeys with nothing better to do than push their false agenda and destroy the lives of innocent people.”

Rittenhouse is working on the game with Mint Studios, whose CEO, Mint Chip, told the Washington Examiner that the company “had to step in to help Kyle after we saw what was done to him.”

The game website says some funds will go to “legal defense against the fake news”.

“There will be media liability soon,” Rittenhouse told Fox News last December, although he did not say who he planned to sue.

Rittenhouse’s promotional video for his game included a rap about the bankruptcy of the news.

“It’s the fake news turkey shooting / Has a laser gun in progress pew pew pew / Follow my suit / We’re about to bankrupt the fake news.”

Rittenhouse announced the match the same day as the Supreme Court hit a New York state gun control law. Meanwhile, the Senate plans to vote on dual gun safety legislation set up in the aftermath of mass shootings at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, and a grocery store in a predominantly black neighborhood of Buffalo, New York.
