The #PrayForOrlando tag is up and running on Twitter.

I'm not sure if it's appropriate to raise here what is being said but a name, photo and political tendency are already being linked with this crime.

Hmmm. Are you getting that from somehwere reliable?
Its posted on the @realjordanfash twitter account which seems to be a White nationalist site. However I dont know if its true or not. It just popped up on Twitter.

Edit it seems someone has been posting on twitter blaming him for lots of shootings. Could be fake. I'm deleting until we know more.

The alleged shooter is a member of the notorious Westboro Baptist Church.
The alleged shooter was allegedly shouting "Make America great Again".

Oh Trump.

Maybe it was one of the gays who had a lovers tiff and went a bit mental? A lot of gay men do seem highly emotional.
