Man Claiming To Be Orlando Shooter's Gay Ex-Lover Says Pulse Attack Was Sparked By Revenge Against LGBT Latinos!

Let's see how the NRA tries to spin this one…

When news first broke that 49 individuals were killed in a mass shooting during Latino Night at a gay club in Orlando two weekends ago, our initial reaction was that this was most likely a hate crime and not a terrorist act.

However, once the media found out more about shooter Omar Mateen's supposed ties to ISIS, the tragic story immediately became a tale of modern, home-grown terrorism in America.

Well, a new report out of Univision is once again painting the picture that the attack on Pulse Nightclub was provoked solely based on the people inside… because one of Omar's alleged gay ex-lovers just came forward with new information!

Apparently, a Puerto Rican man — who wished to keep his identity a secret by wearing a mask — spoke to Maria Elena Salinas on Tuesday about his affair, where he claimed that the shooting was inspired by revenge against LGBT Latinos, not terrorism, saying:

"I've cried like you have no idea. But the thing that makes me want to tell the truth is that he didn't do it for terrorism. In my opinion he did it for revenge. He adored Latinos, gay Latinos, with brown skin — but he felt rejected. He felt used by them. There were moments in the Pulse Nightclub that made him feel really bad. Guys used him. That really affected him."

Woah.

According to Miguel (an alias), he first met Omar on Grindr back in October of 2015 and quickly became friends with benefits over the course of about 15 to 20 hotel sex sessions.

However, that all changed in December when Omar found out that a man with whom he once had a threesome had become HIV+, terrifying the 29-year-old.

Omar allegedly did not undergo testing to check his status, but Miguel says the fear of AIDS was enough to make him go crazy, adding:

"When I asked him what he was going to do now, his answer was 'I'm going to make them pay for what they did to me.'"

Again… if you knew he was planning something evil, why didn't you say anything?!

Regardless of Omar's true motivations, 49 innocent people lost their lives… but at least now we have more information about what could have really happened that night.

Do you believe "Miguel"?

And do U still think the Pulse Nightclub massacre was really an act of terror??
