Man Who Says He was Omar Mateen’s Lover Claims Orlando Massacre was “Revenge” | Democracy Now! — A man who claims he was the lover of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen has told Univision he believes Mateen committed the shooting for revenge, not terrorism. The man, who wore a disguise and called himself “Miguel,” said Mateen bore a grudge against Puerto Rican gay men, including one who revealed he was HIV-positive following a sexual encounter with Mateen.
Miguel: “I believe and I really think all his anger, he hate Puerto Rican—gay Puerto Ricans for all the bad things they do to him. And this will sound bad, and I know a lot of people are going to get a lot of pain for what I’m going to say, but I believe this crazy, horrible thing he did, that was a revenge.”
