“Drug dealing was delicious. I had a pistol, I had girls, I had funk. Everyone saw me as important. I helped defend the favela and maintain the rules.

😩😔Described as the worst shooting massacre ever in the USA. A man described to be homophobic and delusional, shoot and killed people in a gay night club reason being they were gay.

This is not humane in many of our eyes. But no one knows what led him to do it, not just yet we all have our theory’s. A fact is he was homophobic. Some say he was gay himself but just could not accept the fact that he was, some say he was sent no one actually knows maybe he was just phycotic. 🙏🏽🙏🏽
