Avengers: Infinity War Actor Josh Brolin is trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons. The acclaimed movie star has been compared to Aaron Brick, the father of the alleged shooter at Club Q, Colorado Springs. Netizens endlessly compared the two because of their facial features.
The suspect, Anderson Lee Aldrich’s father, Brick, appeared in an interview outside of his San Diego residence with CBS 8. In the exclusive interview, the MMA fighter-turned-adult entertainer shockingly expressed relief that his son didn’t be gay Brick said in the interview:
“They started telling me about the incident, a shooting involving multiple people, and then I found out it was a gay bar and I was like, ‘Oh my god, is he gay? Shit, is he gay?’ And he’s not gay, so I said, ‘Phhhewww…’”
Aaron Brick also stated that his family is Mormon and that he is a “Conservative Republican and we are not gay.”
Discussing Aldrich’s upbringing, this father admitted to praising the former, bypassing the she/them pronouns, for showing violent behavior. Brick approved:
“I told him it was working. It’s instant and you get instant results.”
Discussing his views on firearms, Brick revealed that he believes “guns are good.” He added:
“For me, the weapons are the hands. I believe in the right to bear arms.”
Anderson Lee Aldrich’s court appearance is scheduled for December 6th. He is currently being held without bail and charged with murder and hate crimes.
