Omar Mateen, the radical Islamist who gunned down 49 people in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, is now revealed to have been "100 percent gay," according to a very reliable source. What this means for Mateen's terrorist shooting is less sure, but a recent interview by Hispanic television station Univision may have shed some important light on the subject.

Univision secured an exclusive interview with a man claiming to be Mateen's gay lover. During the interview, the man, who chose to only release his name as Miguel, says that Mateen attacked the Pulse nightclub out of rage and revenge, not radical Islam.

"I’ve cried like you have no idea," Miguel told Univision. He then went on to describe his relationship with Mateen as one of a "friends-with-benefits" style relationship. He used words like affectionate and cute to describe this evil man who murdered 49 people in cold blood.

Then Miguel went on to try and describe why he thinks Mateen's homosexual relationship was the impetus for his murders.

Mateen, according to this disguised source who only went by his first name, loved Hispanic people and had relationships with several Puerto Ricans. But he later found out that one of the men had AIDS and he was deathly frightened that he had also contracted AIDS.

"He felt used by them — there were moments in the Pulse nightclub that made him feel really bad. ... That really affected him," said Miguel.

Miguel then reported that Mateen allegedly said he would make the people who gave him AIDS pay. It should be noted that it hasn't been confirmed whether or not Mateen actually was afflicted with AIDS.

The idea that Mateen murdered people at the Pulse nightclub in a "crime of passion," makes for good television. But it doesn't jibe with Mateen's declarations of support for ISIS or his radical statements made to the 911 dispatcher. This is one situation that only gets murkier the deeper you get.
