FORT LAUDERDALE—A gay man associated with conning victims out of money for BearBeach Weekend last March has made a series of alarming threats to massacre gay men in Wilton Manors over the Labor Day weekend. Craig Jungwirth exchanged a series of Facebook posts with David Herbert, a Fort Lauderdale resident.

Jungwirth, whose Facebook page was using a photo of boxer Alex Ramos, wrote:

My events are selling out cause you faggots are total patsies. None of you deserve to live. If you losers thought the Pulse nightclub shooting was bad, wait till you see what I’m planning for Labor Day.

When Herbert threaten to call the police to report Jungwirth’s threat, he reposted:

You can’t never catch a genius from MIT and since you faggots aren’t dying from AIDS anymore, I have a better solution to exterminate you losers.

Herbert responded by telling Jungwirth to “get some help.”

I’m gonna be killing you fags faster than the cops kill n**gers. It’s time to clean up Wilton Manors from all you AIDS infested losers.
