Kyle Rittenhouse has been revamping his perspective on life since a jury found him innocent of shooting charges last year over an August 2020 riot. During a sit-down interview, the acquitted teenager explained to Daily Wire host Candace Owens he's back at Arizona State University after a cancellation effort against him led Rittenhouse to clear things up with the directors there.

"Rittenhouse says he received a compassionate withdrawal but says he's back at the university," reported The Sun. When asked about what he is up to, he announced that he's been taking pilot classes and snowboarding. Rittenhouse, who hopes to become a private pilot, shared, "I've logged my first flying hours and I absolutely love it. Just doing stuff that's fun and living my life." He has posted photos on his Instagram account where he is seen snowboarding. The caption reads, "Finally hitting fresh powder." Rittenhouse has announced in the past that President Joe Biden incorrectly labeled him as a white supremacist throughout his presidential campaign. "There's going to be some accountability, Candace," Rittenhouse confirmed.

A turbulent night of unrest in August led to an altercation where Kyle was videotaped shooting two rioters dead and wounding a third in a case of what was eventually considered self-defense. Rittenhouse was exonerated of all charges against him in a highly publicized November 2021 murder trial over the shooting deaths. "I noticed all these false media narratives coming out calling me a white supremacist, a vigilante and those just aren't true. It's absolutely crazy because this case had nothing to do with race, it had to do with the right to self-defense," Rittenhouse is quoted as stating, according to the Daily Wire. During the interview, Rittenhouse reiterated to Owens that his life was normal before that fateful night in August 2020 throughout the consecutive protests where he was forced to take up arms to defend himself against a pursuing mob. "I was a lifeguard, I was a swim instructor, and I was a firefighter EMT cadet, and a police explorer, so I just wanted to help people before all this. And I still wanna help people," Rittenhouse told Owens according to the Daily Wire.

It was a dressing down that even questioned the defendant's video game habits and attempted to link that. Rittenhouse was recently maligned in a book by Kara Cooney, who openly acknowledged that it was wrong to say that he killed "two Black men." The now 19-year-old was a recent headliner at Turning Point USA's AmericaFest conference.
