Watch: Fox news guest blames mass shooting on homosexual impulses
A Fox News guest has served up an outrageous theory that the mass murder of six people in Santa Barbara on Friday night by 22-year-old student Elliot Rodger may have been triggered by repressed homosexual impulses.
Reality TV psychotherapist Dr Robi Ludwig advanced the theories on Fox News after watching online videos where Rodgers confessed to never having had sex or kissed a girl.
Asked by Fox news what she thought may have triggered Rodger to turn his anger on innocent bystanders, Ludwig suggested to Fox News broadcasters Rodger's rage was due to "homosexual impulses" he was fighting.
"When I was first listening to him, I was like, ‘Oh, he’s angry with women for rejecting him,'" Ludwig said. "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?"
Ludwig later suggested Rodger's could also have been “angry at the men for not choosing him.”
“This was just a kid that was angry in general. He probably felt rejected, he couldn’t connect, he couldn’t feel loved, he couldn’t feel successful. Maybe he couldn’t even feel like a real man.”
Later Ludwig suggested the videos may also show Rodgers had signs of early schizophrenia.
