Toronto van attack suspect Alek Minassian made a Facebook post that referenced a southern California man who killed several people in 2014.
Minassian, who’s charged with 10 counts of murder for Monday’s rampage, referenced “Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger” on a Facebook account, which the company confirmed to the CBC belonged to the suspect.
Rodger, 22, killed six people in southern California and then himself nearly four years ago after posting a chilling video about how women rebuffed his advances.
The crazed attacker called himself an “incel,” slang for "involuntarily celibate.”
Minassian declared in his recent Facebook post that the “incel rebellion has already begun.”
“We will overthrow all the Chads and the Stacys,” Minassian claimed in the post.

Those were Rodger’s terms “Chad,” for men who found luck with women, and “Stacys,” for women who rejected advances.
Facebook told CBC it pulled the account once the company confirmed it belonged to Minassian.
The 25-year-old suburban Toronto resident drove a rented Ryder van roughly a mile down a crowded sidewalk.
His carnage killed 10 people, injuring another 15, and was finally arrested after a short but tense standoff with cops.
These are the victims of the attack:
