FedEx Shooter Was Obsessed With “My Little Pony” Cartoon


Bizarre details have just been released about FedEx shooter Brandon Hole.

Reports are showing that before Brandon killed 8 people at the FedEx facility, his last Facebook post was “I hope that I can be with Ap­ple­jack in the af­ter­life, my life has no mean­ing with­out her,”.

Applejack is a blond pony who’s the main character of the My Little Pony cartoon show.

Further research on Brandon’s Facebook page which has since been scrubbed by authorities concludes that he was part of a Facebook group that consists of grown men who obsessed with the My Little Pony cartoon series.

The New York Post covered the bizarre new details of the shooter:

The teen who shot up an Indianapolis FedEx facility and killed eight people was reportedly part of a bizarre Internet subculture obsessed with “My Little Pony.”

Posts on Brandon Hole’s since-taken-down Facebook page appear to indicate he was a member of the “Bronies” community — a group of mostly adult men who are extreme fans of the kiddie toys and animated television show, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Some members are sexually attracted to the characters, while the group also has allegedly displayed far-right tendencies.

“I hope that I can be with Ap­ple­jack in the af­ter­life, my life has no mean­ing with­out her,” Hole wrote on his Facebook page at 10:19 p.m. Thursday, less than an hour before his rampage began, the outlet reported.

The post included a photo of Applejack, a blond pony that is a main character on the show.

I definitely wasn’t expecting to hear these details come out.

I’m sure the same goes for you.

The Post Millenial got the scoop too:

The man accused of orchestrating the mass shooting at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis was a “brony,” a term used to refer to adult male followers of the girls’ television show My Little Pony, Washington Examiner reports.

Brandon Scott Hole, allegedly murdered eight people before taking his own life.

While Hole’s Facebook page has since been taken down. While it offered no clues on what motivated Hole’s rampage, it did reveal that he was a fan of the Vancouver-produced television show.

“I hope that I can be with Applejack in the afterlife, my life has no meaning without her,” Hole posted shortly before the shooting. Applejack is one of the main ponies on the show.

The brony fandom first began in the early 2010s as a joke, but has since developed into a genuine subculture of adult fans.
