A mother-of-two who went to a Georgia massage parlor with her husband for a couple's treatment was among 8 people killed by a sex addict gunman on Tuesday.

Delaina Ashley Yaun, 33, was in Young's Asian Massage parlor in Acworth with her husband for a couple's massage when Robert Aaron Long pulled up outside around 4:45 p.m.

Surveillance video shows Long, 21, stalking some of the victims in the parking lot before he entered the building and opened fire.

Yaun was shot dead at the scene but her husband managed to escape unharmed, according to friends who created a GoFundMe account asking for donations.

Long killed four people, wounding one, at the massage parlor in Cherokee County, before driving 30 miles to Atlanta where he killed four people at two massage parlors.

He was captured around 8:30 p.m. when an alert state trooper spotted his SUV and performed a PIT maneuver on I-75 in Crisp County, Ga., about 150 miles south of Atlanta.

He was on his way to Florida to carry out more attacks when he was caught.

Long confessed to the killings, and he claimed the murders weren't racially motivated.

"[H]e has an issue that he considers a sex addiction and sees these locations as something that allows him to go to these places... it's a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate," Captain Jay Baker of the Cherokee Sheriff's Office said at a Wednesday press conference.

Baker added that it had been a "very bad day" for the suspect, and "He was at the end of his rope".

Buzzfeed News later uncovered a racist post shared to Baker's Facebook account.

The post shows images of t-shirts and a t-shirt shop. The black t-shirts are printed with biohazard signs and the words "Covid-19 IMPORTED VIRUS FROM CHY-NA."

A God-fearing Georgia man killed eight people at three Atlanta-area massage parlors because he believed Asian women caused his sex addiction.

Robert Aaron Long, 21, killed eight people - including six Asian women - at three massage parlors on Tuesday evening.

He then fled Georgia, heading south to Florida where he intended to kill more Asian women.

Long was taken into custody around 8:30 p.m. by a Georgia State Trooper who performed a PIT maneuver, causing Long's vehicle to spin out on I-75 in Crisp County, about 150 miles south of Atlanta.

Once in custody, he confessed to the murders and said he targeted the spas because he blamed his "sex addiction" on the massage parlors and he wanted to remove "temptation."

He told investigators he was not a racist and the murders were not hate crimes.

Celebrities took to social media on Tuesday and Wednesday to voice their support for the Asian community in Atlanta.

Lulu Wang, Daniel Dae Kim and Mindy Kaling were among those who expressed their concerns for the safety of the Asian American community in Atlanta.

Responding to a tweet that read: "I want to know their names, who and what they loved, the people they had waiting for them at home, everything they hoped for," Wang wrote:

"I know these women. The ones working themselves to the bone to send their kids to school, to send money back home. In too much pain to know what else to say so I’ll just leave this here."

Bernice King and Lebron James also expressed their condolences on Twitter.

Kanye West says social media entices men like him to stray from their marriages by hosting free photos of half naked women.

Kanye, 42, says he "suffers like Jesus" whenever he surfs social media, only to be confronted by images of women in various stages of undress.

The former rapper says social media tests a man's limits with all those sexy photos.

In an interview with Apple Music, Kanye compared social media to "modern day cigarettes" for their addictive qualities.

"I suffer - and I appreciate the suffering because we can just feel a little bit of what Jesus felt when we suffer, but social media makes me suffer," he said.

'I suffer from that and by me saying this out loud, I'm sure there's other married men that suffer in a similar way that are happy to hear me say, "Oh ya, I'm suffering."'

Wen asked why this is a specific problem for married men, he answered, "Because social media prompts women in particular to put out content that they wouldn't have put out...".

Kanye said the immediate availability of smut on social media only aggravates his sex addiction.

"When I was younger and I wanted to see something like that I had to pay someone that was older to go to 7/11 and buy it," he said, referring to p0rn magazines.

Kanye, who shares four children with his socialite wife Kim Kardashian-West, said his addiction to p0rn began when he discovered a Playboy magazine when he was 5. He said the discovery "affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life".

Kanye previously asked his wife, Kim, to tone down her sexy outfits. He also reportedly asked other rappers to avoid having premarital sex while working on his No. 1 album, Jesus Is King.

Kanye was admitted into a psychiatric hospital in 2016 after he experienced a psychological emergency (mental breakdown).
