Kyle Rittenhouse’s new book is bombing hard on Kindle

Kyle Rittenhouse‘s new book, Acquitted, is doing extremely poorly with sales, according to reports.

According to figures from Amazon that were reported by Newsweek, the book is currently at #9,569 in the Kindle Store and ranks 510 in the Store’s Nonfiction section.

While the book greatly underperformed, people gave it mixed reviews.

“This was a great book that sheds some light on how the media and people in general can formulate an opinion before gathering information,” one reviewer wrote, adding that anyone who gives the book an unfavorable review likely hasn’t read it.

“Kyle is not a hero, by his own admission, but he did do the right thing. Everyone has the right to defend themselves from violent thugs. Hopefully the world can relearn this basic concept,” wrote another.

Another reviewer wrote: “Rittenhouse went to Kenosha to ‘help my community’ and ended up killing 2 people from that community and 1 from a neighboring state. Legal issues aside, it seems much more likely that no one would have been killed if Rittenhouse had stayed home that day. In the end, that would have helped the community a lot more. The media, legal, and political aspects of this incident are controversial and (to me) sickening. In the end, the victims were blamed for their own deaths.”

During riots in in Kenosha, Wisconsin, back in August 2020, Rittenhouse shot and killed two menJoseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26. Rittenhouse also wounded 26-year-old Gaige Grosskreutz. Rittenhouse said the three shootings were in self-defense and video shows Grosskreutz carrying a pistol at the time he was shot by Rittenhouse.

Rittenhouse went to trial and on November 19, 2021, he was acquitted on all charges.
