The shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020, sparked protests across the country. Kyle Rittenhouse, a then-17-year-old teenager, traveled from Illinois to Kenosha to guard businesses from being looted or burned down. Unfortunately, the events that unfolded that night left two people dead and another person injured.
Amidst the controversy surrounding Kyle Rittenhouse's actions, his siblings, McKenzie Rittenhouse and Faith Rittenhouse, have largely stayed out of the public eye.
Kyle Rittenhouse Siblings: Meet McKenzie Rittenhouse and Faith Rittenhouse
McKenzie Rittenhouse is Kyle Rittenhouse‘s younger sister. She was born on September 8, 2004, and is currently 17 years old. Faith Rittenhouse is Kyle's younger brother. He was born on April 1, 2007, and is currently 14 years old.
Not much is known about McKenzie and Faith, as they have not been involved in the events surrounding their brother's case. However, they are known to be very close to their brother, with Kyle often posting pictures of the three of them together on social media.
After the events of August 2020, McKenzie and Faith Rittenhouse have largely stayed out of the public eye. It is not clear if they have been attending school or if they have been receiving any kind of counseling or support.
However, in January 2021, it was reported that Kyle Rittenhouse's mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, had moved to Florida with McKenzie and Faith. The move was reportedly made to get the family away from the media spotlight and to give the children a fresh start.
McKenzie and Faith Rittenhouse have not been involved in the case surrounding their brother's actions on the night of August 25, 2020. As such, there has been little to no reaction to their involvement in the case.
However, there has been some criticism of the media for publishing pictures of McKenzie and Faith Rittenhouse without their consent. In a statement to the media, the family's lawyer, John Pierce, said that the family had not authorized the use of any photographs of the children and that the media should respect their privacy.
