An event billed as a “private reception” that was to be held at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas with Kyle Rittenhouse has been cancelled, FOX5 reports.
The event was set to be held held Wednesday night at The Oak Room inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian. In a post, Rittenhouse told followers, “You guys are not going to wanna miss out on this one!”
The “first come, first serve” event, which was reportedly to feature an open bar and food, was advertised as a “private reception” with Rittenhouse while the Shot Show convention is taking place in Las Vegas.
However, a spokesperson for the Grand Canal Shoppes informed FOX5 in a statement Monday night that the event will not be taking place.
The statement said that the tenant informed the Grand Canal Shoppes that “they have canceled the event.” The statement went on to say that while the mall does not speak on behalf of tenants, the shopping area wanted to emphasize that the “event did not align with our property’s core event guidelines.”
Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges last November after testifying he acted in self-defense when he shot three people, killing two of them, during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020.
