Details about Aaron Franklin have been explored following revelations of him using meth and being convicted of many crimes
Much has been made of Colorado gay club shooter Anderson Lee Aldrich. However, after the shooter’s first court appearance on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, his father, Aaron Franklin, is being punished for using crystal meth. As mentioned above, she has also appeared in several adult shows and movies.
This all happened after an interview with CBS 8, where the father said that when he heard there was a shooting involving several people at a gay bar, he wondered if his son was gay. Franklin claimed to have been “scared” that his son was gay, but when he found out it wasn’t true, he allegedly said, “Phhheww.”
He also talked about being a conservative Republican. He said:
“My opinion about gay people is that it’s not right. I think we should fight against homosexuality.”
However, social media users are now highlighting the fact that Franklin was a crystal meth user who makes adult movies for a living. They are insulting her for claiming that she would have a problem if her son were gay.
As they continued to hit Franklin, one person pulled the family story and said the shooter was arrested for a bomb threat while his mother is an arsonist with a DUI. The user went on to list the family’s criminal history.
Some have even taken to calling the father “disgusting.”
Franklin also has a criminal record, including an assault conviction against Anderson’s mother, Laura Voepel. A 2002 battery conviction in California prevented Franklin from contacting Laura. However, she was later granted supervised visits with the child.
However, that’s not all, as Aaron Franklin was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for importing marijuana. He also tested positive for illegal steroids, which has been added to his criminal record.
Aldrich, the Colorado shooter, was reportedly bullied online because of his father’s criminal record and work in the adult film industry. This led them to change their name from Nicholas Franklin Brink to Anderson Lee Aldrich.
According to the petition at the time, the name change was intended to “protect” them and their future from any connection to their father, Aaron Franklin. Simply put, Anderson Aldrich changed his name to not be connected to his father, Aaron Franklin.
As mentioned above, the shooter identifies as non-binary and uses the pronouns they/them. El Paso County District Attorney Michael Allen said Aldrich’s identity will have no bearing on the prosecution, including whether the shooter will be charged with hate crimes, according to Reuters.
