‘Lone Survivor’ Luttrell vents over Ventura suing ‘American Sniper’ widow; others follow

Based on a photo posted on his Facebook page Tuesday, former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell did not think very highly of Jesse Ventura prevailing in his defamation lawsuit against the estate of “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle.

A federal jury Tuesday awarded Ventura more than $1.8 million for damage to his reputation and unjust enrichment over a passage in Kyle’s book involving a bar fight that Ventura said never happened.


Ventura has faced fierce criticism since continuing his lawsuit against Kyle’s estate, now in the care of his widow Taya Kyle — Kyle was shot to death at a Texas gun range while helping a fellow veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and Taya is raising their two young children on her own.

Luttrell, author of the book “Lone Survivor” and a hero in his own right, has his share of supporters, and some were quick to follow suit on his Facebook page, sharing their own creative sentiments about Ventura’s “windfall.”
