KYLE Rittenhouse told Tucker Carlson that he supports Black Lives Matter and the Kenosha shooting had “nothing to do with race.”
Rittenhouse made the comments in a new interview with Carlson, which will partially air on Monday night on the Fox News host’s show.
“This case has nothing to do with race,” the teen said.
“It never had anything to do with race. It had to do with the right to self-defense.”
Rittenhouse went on to say that he supports “peacefully demonstrating.”
The teen broke down in tears on Friday as he was cleared of five criminal charges after a dramatic trial.
Rittenhouse was seen smiling in exclusive pictures published by The Sun as he left in a car minutes after the verdict was announced.
The teenager pleaded not guilty on all charges and claimed self-defense.
