Wisconsin shooter Kyle Rittenhouse's mom tried to sell 'Free Kyle' bikinis and other merch to raise money for his upcoming trial

For goods sold in the Free Kyle store, mock-ups are used with clothes and text adorned with photoshops. It's not clear if they agreed to promote Kyle Rittenhouse clothing.
Kyle Rittenhouse's family opened a merch store to fund his legal defense after he was charged with murder after shooting two anti-racism protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August.
The store sold "Free Kyle" bikinis, crop tops and sports bras, The Daily Mail reported.
The Printful ecommerce platform cut it off, and the business has now moved to another platform apparently powered by Shopify. Shopify didn't immediately return Insider's request for comment.

Wisconsin prosecutors have accused Rittenhouse of shooting and killing two anti-racism protesters and injuring a third this summer in Kenosha. The next morning he was arrested in Illinois and extradited to Wisconsin, where he was released on bail of $ 2 million in November.
To raise money for his legal defense, which his mother estimates will cost between $ 2 million and $ 2.5 million, his family sells goods. His mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, wrote that she controls the Defense Fund.
"I alone control this website and Kyle's Defense Fund," she wrote. "With Kyle's acquittal and bail returned, Kyle would like to use the remaining funds to help others who are fighting for their God-given right to defend themselves, their families and their communities."
The Rittenhouse family and lawyers say Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself and pleaded not guilty in the case. Much of the goods contain the phrase "Self-defense is a right, not a privilege", a quote attributed to him.
Rittenhouse has become a right-wing icon. President Donald Trump declined to convict Rittenhouse of the murder of anti-racism protesters and his administration was ordered to make compassionate comments on him.
The Rittenhouse family started an e-commerce platform. You have moved on to a new one.
According to the Free Kyle Twitter account linked to the family's website, the store received more than 400 orders before its seller, Printful, cut them off for violating acceptable use guidelines (the best-selling item was a " Free Kyle "logo mug followed by a t-shirt).
"We have decided to end our relationship with this business in order to reduce business risk," said Printful in a statement. "Ultimately, we don't want to be associated with a business that is involved in such a complex, controversial and ongoing case."
For goods sold in the Free Kyle store, mock-ups are used with clothes and text adorned with photoshops. It's not clear if they agreed to promote Kyle Rittenhouse clothing.
Twitter account "Free Kyle" blamed "#CancelCulture" for de-platforming them and canceling existing orders, and has since moved to another e-commerce platform to run the site.
According to The Daily Mail, the Printful store contained a $ 43 Free Kyle bikini, $ 40 sports bra, and $ 25 crop top.
The new webshop offers a limited selection of hats, t-shirts, hoodies and mugs. It appears to show models with pro-Rittenhouse phrases digitally edited onto clothing. It is not clear whether the models have given their consent to the use of their images for the webstore. A message sent through the Free Kyle website was not returned immediately.
The source code of the new website shows that it is supported by the Shopify e-commerce platform. A Shopify representative did not immediately return Insider's request for comment.
The Defense Fund website reveals that it has raised $ 59,000 through sales of goods and direct donations to date.
