Who is Nasim Aghdam? Everything we know about the YouTube HQ shooter

The woman who opened fire at YouTube’s offices in California on Tuesday raged against the video-sharing service for what she saw as censorship of her clips on her niche channel covering vegan issues, animal rights, Persian culture and fitness.

Nasim Aghdam, 39, of Southern California, was identified by police officials as the woman who approached the campus around lunchtime and began to fire before entering the building of the Google-owned video sharing service.

One man and two women were shot in the incident before the female shooter apparently committed suicide.

Ms Aghdam’s family say she was “angry” with the company and had complained about YouTube supposedly censoring her videos and cutting her ad revenue.


So, nothing to do with domestic violence, nor religion but a passionate hatred of YouTube’s arbitrary and discriminatory demonetization and censorship policies. This may result in Nasim being turned into a hero.

“Be aware! Dictatorship exists in all countries but with different tactics! They only care for personal and short-term profits and do anything to reach their goals even by fooling simple-minded people, hiding the truth, manipulating science and everything, putting public mental and physical health at risk, abusing non-human animals, polluting the environment, destroying family values, promoting materialism and sexual degeneration in the name of freedom and turning people into programmed robots!”

Shooter hated YouTube: Iranian animal rights protester, 39, who shot three staff at video giant’s HQ before killing herself, had a vendetta against ‘dictatorial’ site for censoring her videos and not paying her

Hard to argue this point… Aghdam compared her “workout video” to videos by “Nicki Minaj, Miley [Cyrus] and many others that have sexual things so inappropriate for children to watch,” but they “don’t get age-restricted.”

On Twitter many are revising their views of Nasim, they deplore her actions but understand her motivation. I can appreciate that perspective. YouTube is run by SJW’s of the Googly kind and they in turn will make themselves martyr’s, they shouldn’t.
