Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen was once captured on hidden camera spewing disgruntled opinions while working as a security guard during the 2010 BP oil spill cleanup.

The footage showing Mateen was republished Wednesday in a video news story by the Wall Street Journal.

Mateen died early Sunday during a shootout with police after opening fire on a crowded gay nightclub near downtown Orlando. One hundred people were shot, 49 of them fatally .

The 2012 documentary, called “ The Big Fix ,” examines the April 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico after the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. In the video, Mateen is seen talking to an undercover producer seeking access to the cleanup site. Mateen informs the woman that there is no one available to speak with. Nor, he says, does anyone care about her concerns.

“No one gives a s*** here,” he says in the documentary. “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 jobs. They want more disaster to happen.”

G4S Secure Solutions confirmed that the man on the video is Mateen, the WSJ reports. Mateen had worked for the security company (formerly Wackenhut) since 2007.
