Kyle Rittenhouse, who was acquitted last month on all charges in his homicide trial, said that he might be on the verge of filing lawsuits against media companies.

"Some accountability's coming," the 18-year-old Rittenhouse announced Monday afternoon at Turning Point USA's AmericaFest event in Arizona.

Rittenhouse was part of a panel alongside Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk. Rittenhouse spoke with Nicholas Sandmann, the Covington Catholic graduate that reached a settlement with NBC Universal in a suit over his confrontation with a Native American man in 2019.

"[Sandmann] would know a thing or two about suing a media company, that's for sure," Kirk announced.

Rittenhouse responded, "My turn may be next."

Rittenhouse testified throughout his trial that he acted in self-defense during the unrest in August. 25, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The teenager states he shot a rifle as rebels chased him.

On November 19, Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all five charges, including intentional homicide in the fatal shooting of two men and the injuring of a third.

After his acquittal, Rittenhouse put President Joe Biden on notice for defamation litigation.

Fox News asked Rittenhouse what he would tell people who felt like they needed to defend themselves or sought to protect their community from riots.

He said he would do things differently if there were another riot or protest like last summer's.

Fox News asked Rittenhouse to tell people who felt like they had to defend themselves or wanted to protect their community from protests.

He indicated that he would do things differently if there were another riot or protest like last summer's.

"[With] what I was dragged through and what I had to go through — to facing life in prison — I wouldn't say it was worth it," he stated, adding, "hindsight being 20/20."

Previously, Rittenhouse said going to Kenosha was "not the best idea."

Though he noted, "Of course, defend yourself."

Rittenhouse defended himself amid backlash at Arizona State University, where students demanded the administration "withdraw" him from the school.

"I deserve an education like anybody else, and I look forward to attending in the spring," he announced.

The teenager's mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, previously chastised Biden over the ad.

"He went to Kenosha to help people, and what Joe Biden did and showed my son's picture, his image, and labeled him as a white supremacist, I will take him down," the elder Rittenhouse announced in a Fox News interview last year.
