‘Incel’ Texas school shooter Salvador Ramos’ live streams reveal ‘disturbing threats to girls'
( Sun )
TEXAS school shooter Salvador Ramos was an incel who "threatened to kidnap and rape girls who rejected him" on a "daily basis" in chilling live streams, The Sun can reveal.
The 18-year-old Ramos, who massacred 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School, Uvalde, reportedly used Yubo to make his vile rants, a social network where users can create video live streams with up to 10 friends.
In messages shared with The Sun, he told one teen who had rejected him: "You're going to regret not doing what I say" then in another he said: "Go jump off a bridge".
Yubo told The Sun it was investigating an account that had been taken down from the platform - and was sharing information with cops.
The female Yubo user told The Sun: “He would tell people to lock their doors, don’t show up to school tomorrow, just classic s**t that creeps on the internet say. I never knew it would manifest into this.
“The threats were mostly toward women in response to them rejecting him.
“He would threaten to rape girls, he would always say he had the power to make us go missing, it was honestly just typical stuff you hear on apps like Yubo & Discord etc, just creeps you have to ignore."
His behavior mirrors that of men with incel beliefs - a warped online subculture that promotes the misogynistic idea that men are entitled to have sex with women.
He would always say he had the power to make us go missing" Yubo user
According to reports, since 2014 at least six mass murders, which resulted in 44 deaths, have been committed by incel men.
The teen Yubo user said Ramos, who killed his own grandmother before shooting everyone in his path at the school, was also anti-gay and racist and used the platform to make hate-filled live streams.
'RACIST AND HOMOPHOBIC'
“He was an extremely homophobic, transphobic and racist individual which of course resulted in him using slurs and he openly admitted his homophobia multiple times," she said.
“He had a video in his profile with the caption ‘When the teacher doesn’t let me use the bathroom’ and the man in the video goes on to use degrading language against Black people."
The teen, who asked to remain anonymous, shared some screenshots she had managed to make from Ramos’s profile on the app with The Sun - and also believes recordings may exist somewhere.
She said she was keen for people to know how much information people on the app had about him.
“The whole reason for me sharing this is because the community on Yubo saw how little information anyone had on him and we realized just how much we knew about him,” she said.
“I have messages from him from early this year, he was around us all for a long time.
“There’s sides to Yubo, different communities where everyone is familiar by name and everyone is mutual friends with each other. We all knew him.
“We just never thought to record the things he said as they were being said. As it’s a live-streaming app you cannot look up old lives or watch old lives everything is in the moment.
“The moment the shooting became news there was a live made with over 200 people pulling information from everyone to pass along to police.”
HE WANTED DON'T F*** WITH CATS FAME
It comes as it was revealed that Ramos had compared himself to the Netflix show, Don't F*** With Cats, a true-crime docuseries where a group of internet sleuths launched a manhunt for Canadian actor Luka Magnotta back in 2010.
In a statement, Yubo said: "We are deeply saddened by this unspeakable loss and are fully cooperating with law enforcement on their investigation.
"At this stage, we are not legally able to release any specific user information outside of direct requests from law enforcement, but can confirm that we are investigating an account that has since been banned from the platform."
According to officials, Ramos shot his grandmother before getting into a pickup truck that was registered to her, which he crashed outside the elementary school.
Ramos then entered the elementary school through a back door, went down two hallways, and walked into a classroom on the left-hand side where he opened fire.
The children killed in the rampage were between seven and 11 years old.
So far, 17 of the 19 children have been identified by loved ones.
They include students Amerie Jo Garza, Xavier Lopez, Uziyah Garcia, Makenna Lee Elrod, Ellie Garcia, Eliahana 'Elijah Cruz' Torres, Annabell Guadalupe Rodriguez, Tess Marie Mata, Lexi Rubio, Nevaeh Bravo, Rojelio Torres, Jayce Carmelo Luevanos, Jailah Nicole Silguero, Miranda Mathis, Jose Flores, Maite Yuleana, and Alithia Ramirez.
Two teachers who were killed have been identified as Eva Mireles and Irma Garcia, who both died while trying to protect their students.
