YouTube Shooter’s Family May Have Revealed the Motive Behind the Shooting

YouTube headquarters is the latest backdrop of yet another shooting in the United States, and while the shooter’s exact motive has not yet been identified, her father disclosed her anger toward the company in an interview with the Bay Area News Group Tuesday evening. 

Mercury News, a subsidiary of the news organization, detailed the interview, noting that Nasim Aghdam, 38, was a YouTuber who was disgruntled at the company’s recent policy changes, according to her father, Ismail Aghdam.
