The Orlando gunman Omar Mateen appeared in the documentary film, The Big Fix, directed by Josh Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell, that examined the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, reports the Daily Mail.
Mateen was working as a security guard for G4S when he was filmed undercover by the director of The Big Fix. A G4S spokesperson confirmed to CBS News that Mateen is indeed the man featured in the documentary.
Director Rebecca Tickell pretends she is an oblivious passer-by, and asks Mateen about the relief efforts.
Unprompted, he hit out at his colleagues and employers as he was filmed by a hidden camera.
‘No one gives a s***, no one gives a s*** here,’ Mateen says to Tickell.
‘Like, everybody’s just out to get paid. They’re, like, hoping for more oil to come out and more people to complain so they’ll have job.
‘Cause once people get laid off here, it’s gonna suck for them. They want more disaster to happen. That’s where they’re money-making is.’
Tickell, who had apparently just met Mateen, replies: ‘It’s all about the money, right?’
Mateen says: ‘All about the money. Exactly.’
The Big Fix premiered at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival as a coveted Official Selection.
