In Wake Of Orlando, Authorities Investigate Craigslist Ad With Message

Only days after the massacre at the Orlando nightclub Pulse, a direct threat to the LGBT community of San Diego appeared on Craigslist, reported the Los Angeles Times.

The posting, which briefly appeared in the site's men seeking men section on Tuesday, announced, "San Diego you are next."

It also read, "Orlando was long overdue. Cleanse your community of the filth that gives decent gay men and women a bad name. Those people were walking diseases, bug chasers, and thank god for AIDS and 9-11 and now Orlando."
