[NEWS] : NYPD Investigating Tumblr Page for NYC Bombing
The morning after a bombing in New York City left 29 people injured, an unidentified individual is claiming responsibility for the attack in Chelsea. In two blog posts on Tumblr, the individual claims the bombing was meant to bring light to the suffering of people in the LGBTQ+ community. According to Pix11, police are investigating the validity of the posts, which has since been removed.
In the self-described manifesto, the person says they “cannot live in a world where homosexuals like myself as well as the rest of the LGBTQ+ community are looked down upon by society.” The manifesto warned that the attack on Saturday night was just a test, and that they “will not make the same mistake next time.”
Fox News is reporting that authorities believe that the same person may be responsible for both the bombing and New York City and the bombing in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
