We are so shocked that Elliot Rodger called out his childhood crush, Monette Moio, in his 141-page manifesto, blaming her for the anger he felt that led to his mass killing on May 25.
Elliot Rodger explained in detail the anger he had felt over the years, writing a long manifesto and then sending it off to dozens of people, including his parents, before taking the lives of six innocent students in Isla Vista, Cali. In that manifesto, he blamed his anger and hatred toward women on his grade school crush, Monette Moio, who was 12 at the time. Now, Monette’s father is defending his daughter — and revealing how she feels about the horrifying trauma.
Elliot Rodger Blamed Monette Moio For Killing Spree
Before posting an extremely disturbing “Retribution” YouTube video, Elliot wrote the 141-page manifesto titled, My Twisted Life. One piece of the horrifying journal is written below:
She must have thought I was the ultimate loser. I hated her so much, and I will never forget her. I started to hate all girls because of this. I saw them as mean, cruel, and heartless creatures that took pleasure from my suffering. The way I was treated by girls at this time, especially by that evil b–ch sparked an intense fear of girls. The funny part of this is that I had a secret crush on [her]. She was the first girl I ever had a crush on, and I never admitted it to anyone. To be teased and ridiculed by the girl I had a crush on wounded me deeply. The world that I grew up thinking was bright and blissful was all over. I was living in a depraved world, and I didn’t want to accept it. I didn’t want to give any thought to it.
Monette’s Father Heartbroken By Daughter Being Blamed
“She was ten years old for God’s sake — she can barely remember the guy,” Monette’s father John Moio told MailOnline in an interview. “He’s a sociopath. She hasn’t seen him since school. She’s devastated over the whole thing. It’s like she’s being implicated in this terrible tragedy for something she hasn’t done and can’t remember.”
“How is a ten-year-old girl going to bully a 12-year-old boy? Maybe the girls she hung around with did poke fun at him, but they were kids,” the father added, explaining that his daughter isn’t at all a bully.
“She probably rejected his aggressive advances. If you want to call that bullying then fine. He was weird then and he’s weird now. He had a secret crush on her, but she was completely unaware of him. She had no idea… If you think about it, he could have killed her, he could have come after her,” he continued.
He also told the site that his daughter just remembered he was a “strange kid,” but at that age, many are. “I also feel sorry for him because he obviously wasn’t getting the proper help. From what I understand he was receiving psychological help two years before he met my daughter. I am not here to judge anyone. My heart goes out to the victims’ families. God bless them.”
Our thoughts go out to all the families involved in the UCSB tragedy.
