Inside the Bizarre Online World of Youtube Shooter Nasim Aghdam
Three people were shot when Nasim Najafi Aghdam opened fire at Youtube’s HQ in California. Her videos offer a startling insight into the vegan bodybuilder’s inner world.
The 39-year-old from San Diego also went by the name of Nasime Sabz, which means “Green Breeze” in Persian. She also harbored a grudge against the video-sharing platform. On her website, which has since gone offline, she accuses YouTube of “filtering my videos to reduce views & suppress & discaurage [sic] me from making videos.”
Aghdam, who was of Persian origin, had at least four YouTube channels in English, Farsi and Turkish. All of her channels on social networks have now been suspended. However this has not stopped social media users sharing her videos, which have raised more than a few eyebrows.
“Make the lie big, Make it simple, Keep saying it, And eventually they will believe it,” says one quote posted on Aghdam’s website, which she attributes to Adolf Hitler.
She was also a determined vegan activist, who once filmed a zany music video featuring her pet rabbit to promote veganism.
