Non Violent Iranian Feminist Vegan Animal Activist Attacks Youtube

Lets let Heavy.com do the heavy lifting for us, I mean why not?

38-year-old woman who was angry at YouTube and believed the company was discriminating against her videos, causing her to lose money and views, opened fire with a handgun at the video-sharing website’s California headquarters Tuesday, wounding three people before fatally shooting herself.

Nasim Aghdam, who was born in Iran and lived in southern California, was active on YouTube and often ranted about the company in videos on her channels, on Instagram, and on her own website. It is unknown if this was a potential motive in Tuesday’s shooting, but police have not confirmed that. Police confirmed her identity Tuesday night.

Aghdam identified as Persian and often posted videos and other posts in English, Turkish and Farsi, the official language of Iran. She had various online aliases including Nasim(e) Sabz and Nasim VeganBreeze. Original reports listed Aghdam as being 39, but public records indicate that she was 38 and would have turned 39 on April 5, two days after the shooting.

.....“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.

Um, ..... anyway as they say read the rest.

Also shooting at Youtube is a "severe violation" of their TOS.
