Early Life and Education
Kyle has a half-Asian Son and was married to Haley Ly, an Asian Woman, but on 23 July 2017 at ComicCon, he said: "I'm single again ... We'll see what happens, Man. I'm new on the Market, so, we'll see what's crackin'. Definitely, uh, white Women, I think, are the most beautiful Women on Earth. So, that's most likely what's going to happen."
Participation in March 4 Trump Rally
Kyle became a Meme after he hit an Antifa Demonstrator on the Head with a Stick at a Rally in Berkeley called the March 4 Trump Rally. He was arrested and could be charged with up to six Felonies. A legal Defence Fund was set up for him on wesearchr.com, but it got changed to backtheright.com. On 7 March, Kyle announced that it had been decided that he was not to be charged at that Time, which meant that the Case would either be dropped or he would be charged at a later Date.
Fight with David Fadda on 8 July
On 8 July 2017, Kyle had an Argument with David Fadda of Liberty Revival Alliance that turned into a Fight. Kyle accused David of slandering his Name, to which David responded by accusing him of associating with white Nationalists. Kyle had met with Nathan Damigo and that is why David was accusing him of associating with white Nationalists. Kyle acknowledged having spoken with Nathan and accused David of trying to ruin a Rally. David accused him of "going after Rich Black", the Founder of Liberty Revival Alliance and Organiser of both the 8 March and the 15 April Berkeley Rallies. As Kyle got closer, saying: "Black's a f***ing C**t", David pushed him, which led to a Fight. Despite only being able to use one Arm due to an Injury in his other Arm, Kyle nearly knocked David to the Ground with a Punch.
