Why an avid YouTuber ended up with handgun at the company headquarters

NEW DELHI: The woman who opened fire at’s headquarters near San Francisco in the US on Tuesday, wounding three people and shooting herself dead, had a grievance against the internet company that may resonate with many YouTubers., an avid videomaker with many causes to espouse, perceived herself as a victim of what she thought were the policies of YouTube.

Aghdam’sis a collage of videos and photos through which she championed various causes such as veganism and animal rights. That’s where she had voiced her grievance against YouTube. She claimed Youtube filtered her channels to keep them from getting views.

Above a video, she wrote: ‘This video got age restricted after new close-minded youtube employees, got control of my farsi youtube channel last year 2016 & began filtering my videos to reduce views & suppress & discaurage me from making videos!’ A screenshot of her YouTube page is headlined: ‘My Revenue For 300,000 Views Is $0.10?????’

All this is prefaced by a rant against YouTube that sounds like the usual internet conspiracy theories: ‘BE AWARE! 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! There is no equal growth opportunity on YOUTUBE or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!!!!!’

She has also posted a screenshot of her Instagram profile which is headlined: ‘.My Instagram followers, views, likes are real. On instagram, you can buy pages, buy likes, buy followers,…. But mine are real, without advertising or using programs designed to promote instagram pages.’
