NNN: An American teenager acquitted in court after killing people amid riots over police mistreatment of African-Americans unveiled a video game focused on shooting targets representing journalists on Thursday.

Kyle Rittenhouse has said in online posts that money raised from game sales will be used to sue “left-wing media organizations” for defamation over their coverage of his 2020 case.

He did not specify which media outlets he intended to sue, nor was it clear when the game would be available.

“It’s time to fight back against the fake news machine,” Rittenhouse said in a video posted on Twitter.

“That’s why I’m launching the Kyle Rittenhouse turkey shooter video game with fake news.”

A trailer for the game, priced at $10, shows a cartoon version of Rittenhouse shooting, arcade-style, the turkey characters labeled “fake news” from behind cover.

Rittenhouse was acquitted late last year by a jury in the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Rittenhouse, 17 at the time, shot two white men to death and wounded another with his AR-15 semi-automatic rifle during riots that followed anti-police protests in Kenosha.

With Rittenhouse charged with manslaughter, the jury accepted his argument that he was defending himself against the three men’s attack.

Rittenhouse said he had traveled to Kenosha from neighboring Illinois to help protect private property from damage in riots that erupted after Kenosha police shot and paralyzed a black man, Jacob Blake.

Prior to the incident, on his Facebook page, Rittenhouse had endorsed a “Blue Lives Matter” campaign to support the police. This came in response to strong criticism of law enforcement over the murders of black suspects, particularly the May 2020 killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.
