The 'Incel' Movement: How It May Have Motivated Toronto Van Attack
It's hard to believe, but the man who mowed down 25 pedestrians in Toronto is being hailed in the dark corners of the internet as a hero. Alek Minassian, 25, called himself an “incel,” which means “involuntarily celibate.” He allegedly carried out the attack to exact revenge on women for rejecting him. Incredibly, there are an estimated 40,000 other “incel” men who communicate on forums found on Reddit and 4chan. “Alek Minassian gave his life for our future,” reads one sickening post on Reddit.
