Woman allegedly targeted YouTube HQ because she hated the company for blocking her videos

  • The woman who allegedly shot at least three people at YouTube’s campus on Tuesday afternoon has been identified as Nasim Najafi Aghdam
  • All this because Nasim Najafi Aghdam was upset over YouTube’s practices and policies

The person who allegedly shot at least 3 people at the YouTube headquarters Tuesday practiced shooting at a gun range hours before the attack, police said.

The gunwoman was identified as 39-year-old Nasim Najafi Aghdam of San Diego, California.

According to CNN, Aghdam took her 9 mm Smith & Wesson handgun to the Silicon Valley campus and shot three people she apparently didn’t know, San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said.

All this because Nasim Najafi Aghdam was upset with YouTube’s practices and policies.

Aghdam’s online activity shows that she believed YouTube was deliberately obstructing her videos from being viewed. Her channel was deleted Tuesday. Police said they were still investigating possible motives, CNBC reported.

“YouTube filtered my channels to keep them from getting views,” she wrote on YouTube according to a screenshot of her account.

“We know she was upset with YouTube, and now we’ve determined that was the motive,” Barberini said.

Aghdam shot and wounded three people before killing herself, according to senior law enforcement officials.

Two of her victims have been released from the hospital, and one remains in serious condition.
