The YouTube Shooting Was NOT a Domestic Dispute – It Was About Censorship and Demonetization

Yesterday, a woman opened fire on the offices of YouTube in San Bruno, California.

She shot 3 people before turning the gun on herself. Initial reports said this was a lover’s quarrel and that one of the victims was her boyfriend. But it turns out that this was incorrect. Other reports stated that the shooter was wearing a headscarf or hijab, sparking fears that this was an Islamic terror attack. Also wrong.

The shooter has been identified as Nasim Aghdam, a woman from San Diego, California. Aghdam was a YouTuber who had recently had her channels demonetized in the company’s crackdown. More on that in a minute.

Her father, Ismail Aghdam, reported her missing on Monday. Police found her sleeping in her car, 470 miles from home and notified her father that she was okay. Mr. Aghdam warned them that “she had spoken of her hatred of YouTube in recent weeks.” Despite that warning, in a story that is beginning to look all too familiar, the next thing that was heard of Ms. Aghdam was when she was found dead by authorities of a self-inflicted wound after opening fire at the YouTube headquarters.

The shooting was the result of what appears to be an unstable woman who was enraged at being censored.

The backstory

You’ve probably heard that YouTube has been cracking down lately on channels with which they disagree. Conservative channels, in particular, have noted that their channels have been demonetized – meaning they aren’t allowed to have ads – and more recently, YouTube instituted a ban on gun demo videos.

Nasim Aghdam used the name “Nasime Sabz” online and had more than 10,000 subscribers to her channels. According to

CBS reports:

She posted upbeat videos of herself dancing and singing in English, Farsi and Turkish in front of a green screen. She was an animal rights activist and exercise devotee, and talked about going vegan. (source)
