Prior reports seemed to suggest it was domestic and she shot a boyfriend. This says that she may have had a grievance against Youtube. Her name is Iranian.
SAN BRUNO, Calif. (KGO) — ABC7 News sources confirm the YouTube shooter was a user of the platform. Nasim Aghdam has an alleged website with a manifesto that targets YouTube for censorship and demonetization of her video content.
Aghdam is said to have no relationship with anyone in the YouTube facility.
Sources say Aghdam did not have an ID badge but was carrying a purse. Nobody in the facility knew who she was. They added that Aghdam got off 30 or 40 shots before turning the gun on herself.
According to her website, a possible motivation for the shooting could have been tied to her many YouTube accounts, which she says have seen a decline in viewership over the past few months.
She appears to have had an address in San Diego. This appears to be her protesting for PETA.
“Nasim the Persian Azeri female vegan bodybuilder, also animal rights activist promoting healthy and humane living. Nasim produced and launched the first Persian TV commercial and music video (Do You Dare) regarding animal rights and veganism through international Iranian satellite Television in 2010,” read the “About” section on her YouTube channel.
Her YouTube channel has been deleted. She had more than 5,000 subscribers, and her videos had been viewed more than one million times.
Here’s a list of her Youtube videos. Mostly vegan recipes and workout videos.
