The Vegan Shooter

This seems like one of those negative consequences of the nexus of social media and mental illness.

The woman suspected of opening fire at YouTube’s HQ in California had reportedly criticised the platform for suppressing her videos and reducing her revenue.

Police have named Nasim Aghdam, 39, as the suspect in Tuesday’s gun attack that left three people injured.

She is reported to have started shooting at an outside dining area before killing herself.

Now a picture of her vast online presence is starting to build.

US media say Aghdam, who lived in San Diego, southern California, ran a website and multiple YouTube channels.

She posted videos on a variety of subjects including hand art, exercise and animal cruelty.

A screenshot from one of her channels, posted on her website, describes her as a “vegan bodybuilder and animal rights activist” promoting a “healthy and humane lifestyle”.

    Vegans, in my experience, seem a little high strung.

    I always say that a good burger can relieve some of the stress.
