Recastled CEO Kosha Gada says a lot of people are finally “learning facts” about Kyle Rittenhouse “for the first time” following his acquittal and interview on Fox News.
It comes after the 18-year-old was found not guilty of killing two people and wounding a third during a racial justice protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.
Ms Gada said, “half the country” who watched the judicial process play out were not surprised by the way Mr Rittenhouse conducted himself during his interview with Tucker Carlson.
However, she told Sky News host Andrew Bolt there were many others who had only listened to the “synopsis” provided by much of the media, celebrities and politicians, which sometimes even painted him as a white supremacist.
“So, for them, there was sort of a big disconnect, I think if they weren’t read up on the details of this,” she said.
“And I think with the verdict and now this interview, I think a lot of people are learning facts that have been known for a long time for the first time, and it’s casting him in a different light.”
