Former tennis player Rennae Stubbs was unable to keep her cool when she heard the appalling statements made by the father of the Colorado Springs shooter, who targeted club-goers at a gay nightclub and killed five people.
When interviewed, the suspect’s father admitted to praising his child for violent behavior.
“I praised him for violent behavior really early. I told him it works. You’ll get immediate results,” he said.
He further revealed that he was more bothered by his child being at a gay club than by the heinous crime.
“They started telling me about the incident, a shooting… And then I go on to find out it’s a gay bar. I got scared, ‘Shit, is he gay?’ And he’s not gay, so I said, phew… I am a conservative Republican.”
Rennae Stubbs was horrified by the statements and declared that the parents should also be held responsible and charged for the crime.
“Wow!!! Apple didn’t fall far! As I said. This is why women need choices and why parents might need to also be charged when their kids go and shoot others!” Rennae Stubbs remarked.
