On Tuesday evening, an ad appeared in the "men-seeking-men" section of Craigslist that threatened an Orlando-like massacre in San Diego.

Titled "We Need More Orlando's", the terrifying post read:

"Orlando was long overdue. Cleanse your community of the filth that gives decent gay men and women a bad name. Those people were walking diseases, bug chasers, and thank god for AIDS and 9-11 and now Orlando. San Diego you are next …"

The horrifying text was accompanied by an image of a gun shooting a bullet.

Before the advertisement was flagged and removed, a reader sent it to ABC10 — the network's SD affiliate — who showed it to the FBI.

According to FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth, the threat is being investigated by the Joint Terrorism Task Force. He said:

Watch Anderson Cooper Destroy Florida Attorney General's 'Factually Incorrect' Claim That He Edited Their Interview!

Anderson isn't messing around.

Anderson Cooper has HAD it with Florida's Attorney General.

On Tuesday, the CNN anchor called out Pam Bondi live on the air, asking how she could consider herself a "champion of the gay community" when she's voted against same-sex marriage in the past.

The politician was clearly caught off-guard at the time, and is now claiming the AC360 host unfairly portrayed her, telling Florida's WOR radio station on Wednesday:

"When he posted the clip, he cut out the entire first portion that discussed people donating to legitimate funds."

The blonde also demanded the journalist either take down the interview, or post the entire thing online.

The news personality went on his show that same day to address Miz Bondi's claims, explaining that they're "factually incorrect."

The silver fox began by saying that he doesn't get into feuds, and wants the coverage of the senseless shooting at Orlando's Pulse to remain focused on the 49 people who were tragically killed at the gay nightclub.

However, he couldn't let Pam's allegations slide, saying:

"She's either mistaken, or she's not telling the truth."

And he proved this by whipping out the pre-interview notes a producer drafted based on things her own office had said!

Anderson revealed that those papers don't say a single thing about charity scams, which is the only reason the Republican says she was even doing the broadcast!

He also explained that their entire interview aired live, and the whole thing is online here!

Watch his clap back (below)!

Orlando Shooting: Survivor Reveals Why The Shooter Attacked & Says She Was Spared Because He Felt 'Black People Suffered Enough'

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadViolenceScary!Viral: NewsControversy

This survivor is sharing her story.

We applaud Jasmine Carter's bravery for speaking about surviving that terrible tragedy.

On Tuesday, the 20-year-old spoke during a press conference about surviving the senseless shooting at Orlando's Pulse nightclub on Sunday that killed 49 people and injured so many more.

The victim, who shared her story from a wheelchair, explained to the press that she, her friend Tiara Parker, and Tiara's cousin Akyra Murray — who were all on vacation in the Florida city — had a fun night at the gay club and called an Uber when the shots started, saying:

"We went from having the time of our lives to the worst night of our lives in a matter of minutes."

The injured girl explained that she and Akyra had managed to crawl outside, but went back when they realized Tiara was still inside.

When they found her, the three girls hid in the bathroom.

While they sought shelter in a stall, the gunman walked in and started shooting. Jasmine was shot in both legs, Tiara was shot in the side, and 18-year-old Akyra was hit in her arm and bleeding heavily.

The teen tragically died from her injuries.

When Jasmine scoped out the horrific scene, she saw bodies "piled on top of each other on the toilet seat" in other stalls.

She also revealed that the shooter called 911 from the bathroom, explaining why he was massacring all these people, recalling:

Orlando Shooter's Security Firm Didn't Take Away His Gun After He Claimed To Have Family Connections To Al Qaeda

But they did transfer him to an 'unarmed' position.

More disturbing details are surfacing about Omar Mateen's past.

We already knew that the gunman — who senselessly killed 49 people and injured dozens more when he opened fire inside Orlando nightclub Pulse early Sunday morning — worked for a security firm.

But apparently, his employer had been alerted to some serious statements he had made about terrorist organizations, and STILL allowed him to carry a gun.

The killer had been working for G4S Secure Solutions USA, Inc. since 2007, and was stationed at St. Lucie County Courthouse in 2013.

FBI Director James Comey had said earlier this week that colleagues claimed Omar boasted of family connections to al Qaeda and Hezbollah, and that he wanted the cops to raid his home "so he could martyr himself."

After those comments, county Sheriff Ken Mascara says officials from the courthouse immediately requested that the Florida resident would be removed from his station at the building.

So, the firm relocated Omar from the courthouse to PGA Village gated retirement community, but a spokesperson told NBC News that he was still allowed to carry a weapon for the job, even though he was now working an "unarmed" post.

How can they possibly call it an unarmed position if he was still armed?!

But that's not the only complaint about him.

All this comes after he offered his 'thoughts and prayers' to the victims.

What the f*ck.

Even in the wake of a senseless shooting targeting the LGBT community, we still have jerks like this guy blocking bills that work to eradicate discrimination.

On Tuesday, House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions prevented a vote on a proposal that would ban federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT employees.

This is the third time Republican leaders have shot down this bill, filed by New York Representative Sean Patrick Maloney.

And what's worse, before the vote, the congressman adamantly insisted that Pulse nightclub — the site of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history — was NOT a gay club, telling National Journal reporter Daniel Newhauser:

The Skin Wars star said this disgusting act has rocked everyone across the country, saying:

"Every American who believes in what this country stands for is shaken to the core. Shaken to the core, and it really does have to stop."

And in order for it to stop, the California native insists that we, as a nation, have to change our way of thinking:

"A collective shift in our consciousness has to happen. That's the solution."

But in the wake of an act fueled by such incomprehensible hate, the TV personality says acceptance and love is the only way we can start that shift, adding:
