Buzzfeed News - A 39-year-old woman who alleged that YouTube “discriminated and filtered” her videos has been identified as the shooter who opened fire Tuesday at the company’s California headquarters, injuring three people before turning the gun on herself.

Police identified the shooter as ——– of San Diego.

Multiple YouTube channels that belonged to —–, where she frequently posted about animal rights and veganism, were terminated Tuesday night after she was named as the shooter.

—– posted numerous videos and pictures on social media platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, and a personal website.

—- posted frequently about animal rights and vegan recipes, and alleged that YouTube was discriminating against her.

Obviously a horrible situation at YouTube HQ yesterday.  And now with some of the details being reported it just sheds more light on another example of how sick and twisted the human mind can be. A woman bringing a gun to an office and trying to literally take people’s lives away because she believed she should be making as much ad revenue on the workout videos filmed on her Macbook in her living room as Nicki Minaj makes for her music videos. Thinking that grainy footage of her Cauliflower-Cashew Soup with Crispy Buckwheat recipe from the electric stove in her kitchen should be churning out big bucks just like Rachael Ray and Martha Stewart.

“Youtube filtered my channels to keep them from getting views!” she wrote on her website, claiming that she received 10 cents in revenue after 300,000 video views.

“There is no equal growth opportunity on YouTube,” she wrote on her website.

Aghdam said a video featuring her doing exercises had been “age restricted” by “close-minded YouTube employees.”

She said the video had “nothing bad in it — nothing sexual” and alleged YouTube restricted it because “it got famous and was getting many views, so they age-restricted that video to keep it from getting views.”

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.”

I mean this is one of the channels she complained about being “unfairly censored.”

The second video is called “Dog Skinned Alive.”

It’s lunacy.

Ts and Ps for a full recovery from the three who were wounded, one critically.
