DENVER (CBS4) – James Holmes — more accurately, someone pretending to be the jailed gunman online — has created a Facebook fan page for himself.
The description of the “public figure” page plays up the alleged Aurora shooter’s comment to police that he is The Joker. The page’s description parodies the Jay-Z song “99 Problems” – “If you like batman, I feel bad for you son. I’d kill 99 people and a baby is one.”
The posted profile photos are edited versions of the smirking University of Colorado photo that was released once it was uncovered that he is a medical school dropout. One photo has been edited to show him holding a Joker playing card and another has painted his face and hair white and green like that of the comic book villain.
Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 others. Naturally, there are a number of inflammatory comments on the public page that lists “Best aim” as one of his awards and has been “liked” by nearly 450 people and growing.
A series of morbid memes have been written over Holmes’ profile photo that make light (or dark) of the event that is being described as the worst mass shooting in American history. Read more here via CBS
