TV psychotherapist Dr. Robi Ludwig claims that mass murderer Elliot Rodger went on a shooting rampage because he was struggling with being gay.
Rodger, 22, posted a chilling video before killing six people in Santa Barbara on Friday night in which he attributed his actions to his sexual frustration.
“All you girls who rejected me and looked down upon me and treated me like scum, while you gave yourself to other men,” Rodger said hours before fatally shooting six people near UC Santa Barbara, injuring seven more and then turning the gun on himself.
“And all of you men for living a better life than me. All of you sexually active men. I hate you.”
But according to psychologist Robi Ludwig, Rodger was probably dealing with his stifled homosexuality.
“When I was first listening to him, I was like, ‘Oh, he’s angry with women for rejecting him,’” Ludwig told Fox News. “And then I started to have a different idea: Is this somebody who is trying to fight against his homosexual impulses?’”
“Was he angry with women because they were taking away men from him?” she postulated. “But this is a kid who couldn’t connect, and felt enraged, and wanted to obliterate anyone that made him feel like nothing.”
