In a disturbing, now-removed YouTube video, the suspect in the murder spree near Santa Barbara, Calif. promised his revenge against the women who he says forced him to live “an existence of loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires.”
“You girls have never been attracted to me,” Elliot Rodger, who killed six people before taking his own life, said in the video. “I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it. It’s an injustice, a crime, because… I don’t know what you don’t see in me. I’m the perfect guy and yet you throw yourselves at these obnoxious men instead of me, the supreme gentleman.”
Rodger’s comments inspired an online conversation Saturday around the #YesAllWomen hashtag to criticize the way society teaches men to feel entitled to women at the expense of their health, safety and, in Rodger’s case, lives. Here is a sampling of some of the tweets happening on Twitter now:
