The 22-year-old murdered five people including a three-year-old girl before turning his legally-held shotgun on himself during a six-minute shooting spree in Plymouth, Devon on Thursday. Much has since emerged about the oddball apprentice crane operator who filmed himself ranting about his miserable life in numerous YouTube videos.
It has since emerged that the mass murderer said he knew the psycho clown’s pain “too well” in a YouTube rant – the Daily Star reported.
Posting under the name Professor Waffle on his since-deleted account he said: “I know this feeling too well being in a government council estate without a car walking until my shoes had holes, no friends no social group and coming home to a vile horrible mother every night.
“I also know what it’s like to have no job at all for a long period with our only escape being a computer for years.”
Upon its release in 2019 the movie was slammed as “incel bait”.

He told a US teenager on a subreddit forum that he was “bitter and jealous” and that women “treat men with zero respect or even view them as human beings”, the Guardian reported.
It has since emerged that Davison’s shotgun licence and weapon were returned to him last month, having been revoked after an alleged assault last year.
This has led many to question why more thorough checks were not done on the unhinged individual.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said: “How on earth did he get a gun licence in the first place? What back-up checks were done?”
Former top prosecutor Nazir Afzal said Davison was “exactly the type of person the authorities should be keeping an eye on” with a police watchlist.
Davison’s first victim was his mother Maxine Davison, 51, who was shot and killed at her home on Biddick Drive, Plymouth, on Thursday evening.
Davison went on to kill three-year-old Sophie Martyn, her father Lee Martyn, 43, Stephen Washington and Kate Shepherd.
His attack lasted about six minutes before he turned the gun on himself.
In online videos Davison spoke of being “beaten down” and “defeated by life”.
Devon and Cornwall Police have confirmed that the Independent Police Complaints Commission are investigating how Davison was allowed to have and keep his shotgun licence.
