Some stories write themselves.
Authorities have named Nasim Aghdam as the shooter who wounded at least three at YouTube’s San Bruno headquarters on Tuesday afternoon, coincidentally deemed “#LoveAMuslimDay” by social media companies.
Donning body armor and a headscarf, eyewitnesses claim that during lunchtime Aghdam calmly walked through YouTube’s office building firing indiscriminately at unarmed employees before taking her own life with the same handgun.
The three injured victims, two women, 32 and 27, and a 36 year old man were rushed to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.
Aghdam, who appears to also go by the name Nasime Sabz Yeşil on one of her many social media accounts, has 55,500 followers on one Instagram account and 16,100 followers on another.
Included on those accounts are videos of her wearing a black hijab, which appears similar to that which was described by victims at YouTube’s HQ.
In some of Aghdam’s videos, she claims to be showing her “ninja look” while criticizing the West over lack of freedom, and applauding Iran as an example to follow.
According to her website, she is a vegan Farsi speaking Persian, and has been pictured previously at PETA protests outside Camp Pendleton, California.
Her website features a collection of YouTube videos of users complaining about demonetization, as well as complaints against YouTube for shoddy payments over video views. She also posted screen grabs attempting to depict YouTube subtracting views from her own videos, which are unverifiable.
On that site, she wrote:
Dictatorship exists in all countries but with different tactics! They only care for
personal short term profits & do anything to reach their goals even by fooling simple-minded people,
hiding the truth, manipulating science & everything, putting public mental & physical health at risk,
abusing non-human animals, polluting environment, destroying family values, promoting materialism &
sexual degeneration in the name of freedom,….. & turning people into programmed robots!
“Make the lie big, Make it simple, Keep saying it, And eventually they will believe it” Adolf
Hitler… There is no free speech in real world & you will be suppressed for telling the truth that is not
supported by the system. Videos of targeted users are filtered & merely relegated, so that people can
hardly see their videos!
The #LoveAMuslimDay hashtag was throttled to the front lines of trending sections on social media after a rumor circulated that April 3 would be #PunishAMuslimDay as a response to global terrorism.
Tuesday evening local authorities reported this was being investigated as a domestic dispute and the woman had come to YouTube to shoot her boyfriend, who was employed there. Mainstream media reported the news which has since been revealed to be false. Aghdam appears to have no such personal connection with any employees of the company. Her social media accounts reveal she was angry about censorship.
YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook have deleted her account following the release of her name.
