Alleged Ex-Lover Of Orlando Shooter Speaks Out, Says He Did It For Revenge

Alleged Ex-Lover Of Orlando Shooter Speaks Out, Says He Did It For Revenge

“I’ve cried like you have no idea.”

That’s the alleged ex-lover of Omar Mateen, the Orlando shooter who murdered 49 people at the gay nightclub Pulse a week and a half ago.

Going by the fake name “Miguel” and wearing a disguise, the man sat down with Univision for an exclusive interview, during which he claimed without presenting even a shred of evidence that Mateen didn’t do what he did for terrorism — despite Mateen’s own words on Facebook and in calls to 911 on the night of the shooting.

Instead, he claims he did it for revenge, and says Mateen felt taken advantage of by members of the gay community.

“He adored Latinos,” he said. “Gay Latinos, with brown skin, but he felt rejected. He felt used by them. There were moments in the Pulse nightclub that made him really mad. Guys used him. That really affected him.”

Miguel claims what sent Mateen over the edge was sleeping with two Puerto Rican men, one of whom confessed he was HIV-positive after the encounter.

According to ‘Miguel’:

“He was terrified that he was infected. I asked him, ‘Did you do a test?’ Yes. He went to the pharmacy and did the test … it came out negative, but it doesn’t come out right away. It takes four, five months. 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.”

‘Miguel’ strained credulity to the breaking point by insisting that Mateen was a “very sweet guy.” According to CBS, the two men met up about twenty times last year and first found one another on a hookup app. They soon became “friends with benefits.”

He claims Mateen never told him his name, but did reveal pertinent facts about his life: He was married, he had a son, and Mateen’s wife apparently knew he frequented gay bars.

In fact, he insists their whole twice married thing was a sham to conceal from Mateen’s father that his son was “100 percent” gay.

Apparently he never showed a violent side and loved to be cuddled.

“He was looking for love,” the source told Univsion.

Asked why he decided to come forward, he simply said, “It’s my responsibility as a citizen of the United states and a gay man.”

        Make una dey believe dey go sha.

        I see no better reason why the FBI would hide the fact that he was gay. I don’t see how someone can be this “gay” and not leave a trail. Abi una wan begin talk say the FBI is working with Trump to pass this off as a strictly radical Islam terrorist attack so as to push his “shut the borders” agenda well well.

        Anyhow I may be wrong (or not) but one thing I’ve come to know is that Americans can like to cash in on literally anything to make money and fame. They be shameless like that.

          Yes, you can indeed leave no trails if you want to especially as a person strongly as internally homophobic, it shouldn’t be hard. Simply keep all conversations online, do not exchange numbers or contact information. And if the claim that he used JACKD is true, that is even way more easy. It provides you with an option of locking your photos, it doesn’t save your chat history and when you block a person, all the online history you have with that person is gone. So yes, most of these apps make it easy not to leave a trail.

      Like the FBI has never been wrong before. And given the way the media had been trying to manipulate the public into seeing the tragedy as a terrorist attack instead of a hate crime, who’s to say the FBI isn’t investigating along the same line?

    When you have watched foreign movies to a certain level,you will know the govt and its security agencies can go to any lenght to protect the image of the country or discredit whatever info that is discovered if it doesnt suit their agenda for that moment…

    Possibly this guy is right cos I have thought about it too and this just looks like a case of self loath and extreme case of inferiority complex…

    Even before the wife admitted he frequents gay bars,the 1st moment I saw his pics my gaydar went off! That might not mean anything gaydars are faulty sometimes too but am just saying…

    This is a very rational explanation towards the whole thing. I’ve always suspected the Omar guy to be a closeted homosexual. Only someone with a personal grudge would do that.
    He would have visited a shrink or something. How does killing enmasse satiate your anger?
