An unhinged internet personality who identifies as an involuntary celibate — or “incel” — was charged by federal authorities Wednesday for allegedly threatening to detonate a bomb while yelling “Allahu Akbar” at two women eating at a Manhattan restaurant.
Malik Sanchez, who goes by the pseudonym “Smooth Sanchez” online, was busted Wednesday for the bizarre threat he allegedly carried out while live-streaming on YouTube in February, feds charged in a criminal complaint filed in Manhattan federal court.
During the stream, Sanchez allegedly walked up to the outdoor-seating area of a Flatiron District restaurant where two women were eating and said he was going to, “enhance their meal.”
“Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Bomb detonation in two, in two minutes. I take you with me and I kill all you. I kill all you right now. And I kill all you for Allah,” Sanchez seethed at the women, according to court docs.
“I’m gonna f—king do it for Allah,” he added.
In a charging document, an FBI agent wrote that he reviewed a number of videos that showed Sanchez accosting other women on Manhattan streets, including one in which he praises Elliot Rodgers, a self-proclaimed incel who killed several people in California in 2014.
“F—k you, you b—ch. It’s cause of you, it’s cause of you that I’m a virgin — I have incel rage. You know what? Elliot Rodgers was good. Elliot Rodgers was a good guy,” he said in the video, according to the complaint.
“I swear to God … They deserved to be run over and hit by a truck. They deserved to be slaughtered,” he added, speaking about Rodgers’ victims.
In another video, he turned to a group of people on a stoop and said, “I pull out Glocks, baby,” while invoking Rodgers’ name.
The New York FBI praised his arrest Wednesday.
“Anyone who intends to carry out a similar hoax should know that the FBI’s JTTF is ready and willing to respond,” FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. said in a statement.
Rodgers is expected to make an initial court appearance in Manhattan federal court Wednesday afternoon.
