YouTube refused to answer whether it would lift its policy against employees speaking to the press after several employees cited the ban as the reason they couldn’t speak about Tuesday’s shooting at the company’s headquarters.
As soon as the gunfire started in San Bruno, California, several employees began live-tweeting. Vadim Lavrusik, a YouTube product manager, wrote “Active shooter at YouTube HQ. Heard shots and saw people running while at my desk. Now barricaded inside a room with coworkers.”
Hahaha! CNN Criticized for “Sexist” Coverage of YouTube Shooting
