The 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse revealed he spent 87 days in jail during an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

“I had a desk, I had a shower, I had a toilet, I had a TV, I had a tablet but I didn’t have running water,” Rittenhouse told the Fox News host.

“I had a phone also, but I did not have running water until November 20th. From October 31st to November 20th, I did not take a shower.

“I smelled terrible, I felt sick, I lost weight, my health was degrading. If I was in there for a month longer, I probably would’ve ended up in a hospital.

“When I showered, I took like a three-hour shower. My skin was bleeding because my skin was coming off my body, it was just the nastiest thing ever.”

Rittenhouse also told Carlson that he was stunned that his arrest was portrayed as a racial story, news.com.au reported.

“It had to do with the right to self-defence. I’m not a racist person. I support the BLM movement, I support peacefully demonstrating. I believe there needs to be change,” Rittenhouse said.

On Aug. 25, 2020, Rittenhouse, 17 years old at the time, shot in self-defense against three men, two fatally, after being attacked by these people during Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin last year.

On Friday, Nov. 19, Rittenhouse was found not guilty on five counts, including first-degree reckless homicide, two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, and two counts of first-degree reckless endangerment.
