Animal Rights Activism

As an early adult, she became an animal rights advocate. [3] She had a personal website dedicated to animal rights issues and veganism. [9] She famously protested for against the US Marines' killing of pigs in military exercise. She stated to the San Diego Union Tribune , “For me, animal rights equal human rights.” [64]

At one point, while she was living in San Diego, Aghdam established an animal rights charity called Peace Thunder Inc. to educate people about animal cruelty, as well as environmental pollution. [67]

Website (Nasimesabz)

In 2010, Nasim started a website called Nasimesabz advocating for veganism. [9] She used different social media tools and methods to promote her causes, including YouTube and Instagram. [26] [52]

She had a video section on her website, as well, where she embedded videos from her YouTube channel, as well as videos from other channels that promoted her cause; most of the videos from other channels included recorded incidents of people torturing animals. There were also some inspirational videos uploaded to her 'Videos' section, including the music video of Michael Jackson's " Earth Song " and a video of Bill Clinton discussing why he went vegan. [9]

Doing some squats

In addition, she posted videos of her working out. [17]



Nasim created her primary YouTube channel on September 19, 2010. She gained over 1.5 million views on her channel, along with over 4,500 subscribers. [33] In her YouTube channel's About section, she claimed to produce the first Persian TV commercial and music video; the latter was entitled "Do You Dare." [33] Her videos' themes centralized around animal rights and veganism. [33]

In January 2017, she made a video venting about her content being "discriminated and filtered." She also posted photos on her website alluding to how YouTube had demonetized many of her videos. [47] [48] [49] [50] She also wrote a manifesto and ranted frequently about her content being censored by YouTube. [9] She posted the following on her website: [52]

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!!!!

In another passage she wrote:

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,

Shooting (YouTube HQ)

Posting about Anal sex on her website

On April 3, 2018, Aghdam was identified as the suspect who opened fire at YouTube's headquarters in San Bruno, California. [2]

She approached an outdoor patio and dining area and began to fire. Aghdam did not have an ID badge but was carrying a purse. Nobody in the facility knew who she was. They added that Aghdam got off 30 or 40 shots before turning the gun on herself. [6]

According to law enforcement authorities, she was wearing a dark top and head scarf at the time of the shooting. [44]

From her Instagram

Authorities stated that she was a user of the platform. Aghdam had a website with an alleged manifesto that targets YouTube for censorship and demonetization of her video content. [6]

A possible motivation for the shooting could have been tied to her many YouTube accounts, which she says have seen a decline in viewership over the past few months. [6]
