Rittenhouse ‘fueled’ by Depp verdict, tells supporters to ‘keep an eye’ out for defamation case updates

Teen Kyle Rittenhouse was watching the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial along with millions, and the verdict has inspired him to fight back harder against the media.

On June 1, Rittenhouse tweeted two quotes from Depp, indicating his support for the actor and congratulating him and his legal team for their win in his defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard.

Supporters of Rittenhouse claim that he had also been defamed by the media during his trial for shooting three men in Kenosha, Wisconsin, killing two. Terms such as “murderer” and “white supremacist” were thrown around with little to no pushback. When Rittenhouse was found innocent on all charges, those who were on his side urged him to begin filing defamation lawsuits with his legal team.

It would appear that watching Depp be vindicated in court lit a fire under Rittenhouse, who urged his Twitter followers to keep an eye on Fox News for pending updates.

On Friday, Rittenhouse announced that Todd McMurtry, the lawyer who worked with “Covington kid” Nick Sandmann, would be joining his legal team.

Social media reacted to the teen’s announcements with glee:
