Shootout at YouTube
Bizarre shootout at YouTube involving a member of the Bahai faith from Iranian. The suspect, Nasim Aghdam, wounded three people before fatally shooting herself at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, Calif. Aghdam was reportedly angry at YouTube for demonetizing her videos and causing her to lose viewers and money. The videos themselves are rather strange — some physical fitness workouts, others ranting, vegan diatribes with a leftwing orientation.
Some observers raised questions about Aghdam’s sexuality, saying her physical features indicated she might have been born as a man. These commentators pointed to videos showing her with an Adam’s apple. Hard to gauge the merits of the argument, though, because YouTube belatedly removed Aghdam’s channel and thus all of the video content. What remains are videos transcribed elsewhere before YouTube again pursued censorship.
