Last year, Jesse Ventura won a defamation lawsuit against the late legendary American sniper Chris Kyle. Kyle had apparently claimed that he knocked Ventura out for saying SEALs were doing the wrong thing, or some shit. The courts decided Ventura was right and awarded him $1.8 million. $500,000 of that was paid for by HarperCollins, the publisher of “American Sniper.” The remaining sum was put on the shoulders of Taya Kyle. Forged Clothing would then start a “Legend Campaign” selling Chris Kyle themed shirts, and raised $1,000,000 in 11 days to help Taya pay that sum back.
Should be end of story right? Wrong. Jesse Ventura just had to put the spotlight back on him by interrupting The Opie Show on Tuesday to gloat about his win over the Kyle estate.
Come on, dude. There is no need for that. Chris Kyle is a goddamn hero. So you won — who cares? Chris was twice the man you’ll ever be. Sit down, and shove it up your tailpipe..
