Police say the videos posted by the woman who wounded three people in a shooting at YouTube headquarters are central to the motive.
Police and relatives say Nasim Aghdam (na-SEEM AG-dahm) was angry with YouTube’s policies.
Aghdam used the name “Nasime Sabz” online, and a website in that name decried YouTube’s policies and said the company was trying to “suppress” content creators.
YouTube had no comment about any actions related to Aghdam’s videos.
Aghdam was prolific at producing videos and posting them online.
Many of them were bizarre such as a clip in which she removes a revealing purple dress to expose fake breasts with the message, “Don’t Trust Your Eyes.”
In others, she exercises, promotes animal rights and explains the vegan diet, often in elaborate costumes or carrying a rabbit.
The Father of #Youtubeshooter Nasim Aghdam called the police and told them his daughter was missing for two days and not answering her phone, he also warned them that she might be heading for youtube because of a vendetta. They found her asleep in her car…. and let her go. pic.twitter.com/cLoAwpLAvv

When I watch this video of the YouTube HQ San Bruno shooter Nasim Aghdam, it seems explicitly clear that a mental health crisis is the problem we’re facing. Another mentally ill killer who ended up an extremist. Very sad. pic.twitter.com/xWwnyUEdrW

No, Nasim Aghdam is NOT Muslim because she “has a Muslim sounding name.”
Cut all of that Orientalism out.

As I look into it, I’m not seeing a connection between #NasimAghdam and radical Islam.
She seems to be your standard unhinged entitled liberal who went homicidally nuts when she didn’t get her way. #YouTube

I don’t think we are getting the full story. And for the record, Nasim is not traditionally a woman’s name. It’s a boy’s name.

That moment you realize that more PETA members (Nasim Aghdam) have been involved with a mass shooting than NRA members.
I guess that means that PETA is a terrorist organization!
