WATCH: Fox News Guest Blames Mass Shooting On 'Homosexual Impulses'

A Fox News psychotherapist offered a different theory on Saturday for what led 22-year-old Elliot Rodger to kill six people in Santa Barbara Friday night.

Prior to the shootings, during which he reportedly took his own life, Rodger had expressed his frustrations in online videos over being ignored by girls for other "stupid and obnoxious guys." He ranted about going through college without ever having sex or kissing a girl, constantly being rejected and treated "like scum."

But reality TV psychotherapist Dr. Robi Ludwig told Fox News Saturday night that she suspects Rodger's rage was due to "homosexual impulses" he was fighting.

"When I was first listening to him, I was like, ‘Oh, he’s angry with women for rejecting him,'" Ludwig said. "Then I started to have a different idea: 'Is this somebody who is trying to fight against his homosexual impulses?'"

"Was he angry with women because they were taking away men from him?"

Ludwig later said that Rodger's online videos may indicate signs of early schizophrenia-- although she admitted to not having officially diagnosed him.
