Omar Mateen, the Pulse gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub Sunday, appeared in a 2012 documentary about the BP oil spill.
Mateen’s comments were included in the documentary “The Big Fix” filmed while he was a security guard with G4S, one of the world’s largest security companies. Mateen was employed by G4S for nine years and was working for the company at the time of the massacre.
In the documentary, a uniformed Mateen tells someone inquiring about the oil spill “No one gives a s___ here,” he said on film. “Everybody is just out to get paid. They’re like hoping for more oil to come out and more people to complain so they’ll have jobs. They want more disaster to happen.”
Mateen was among those working after the 2010 explosion of a BP oil well dumped millions of gallons of oil into the ocean and along the Gulf Coasts of Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana and Texas. The oil spill had long-term economic consequences for the area, with states only reaching a financial settlement with the company last year.
