But when she perceived the company had robbed her of her voice - cutting off many of her viewers by censoring her videos - the eccentric YouTuber turned from defiant to deadly.
Police questioned Nasim Aghdam in her auto just hours before she opened fire on YouTube headquarters on Tuesday, wounding three people and apparently killing herself, the Associated Press reported. "She was a nice person, until today". She was staying at her grandmother's home in 4-S Ranch, but she stopped answering her phone - and they reported her missing to police. Nasim was born in 1979 during the Iranian Revolution when women's rights were severely restricted, forbidding women to show any skin but their face and hands. "With this act she damaged the reputation of Iranians". She gave no reason but said she was its only member and the group had no assets. She had built a following for her vegan-centric videos, reaching more than 3.2 million viewers in 2016. In the Q-&-A, she explained that veganism "is a diet of peace for all caring citizens of this planet, humans and non-human animals".
YouTube said Wednesday it will increase security at its headquarters and offices around the world.
"We know that she was upset with YouTube, and we've determined that right now that's the motivation that we've identified", Barberini said.
"Life is handsome if we know what the word lovely really means!"
She also claimed to be a "vegan bodybuilder".
"First thought was quake", Sherman said in a series of tweets.
Police declined to name the firearm retailer or the local gun range where Aghdam practiced shooting before driving to YouTube Tuesday, citing the ongoing investigation.
"So I called that cop again and told him there's a reason she went all the way from San Diego to there, so she might do something".
She collected her gun the same day YouTube Chief Product Officer Neal Mohan and Chief Business Officer Robert Kyncl announced in a blog post that the company was further tightening its rules and raising requirements for creators trying to make ad revenue off their videos. Barberini also said the 39-year-old got into the building through a parking garage, and that investigators are in the process of executing search warrants at two properties.
Officials have said they believe the motive was a "domestic related-dispute".
Nasim Aghdam's family's house in Menifee, CA. "It was like she was staring me down". "And she had a problem with YouTube", Aghdam's brother told CNN affiliate KGTV. She got upset when the two teens rode their skateboards through the complex.
Aghdam purchased the 9mm Smith & Wesson pistol on January 2 and picked up the weapon after the mandatory 10-day waiting period had expired, according to a source.
Hossein Naderi, a 23-year-old art student in Tehran, questioned why Aghdam chose to "live in the US, though she didn't like it there", adding: "I wish I was there to use YouTube freely". "Your channel will grow if they want [it] to!"
During the 20-minute interview with officers early Tuesday, she did not mention being angry with YouTube or having accused the company of suppressing her video posts.
"Our officers made contact with the woman after the license plate of her vehicle matched that of a missing person out of Southern California", a spokesperson for Mountain View police told the LA Times.
Aghdam's family has been particularly critical of the Mountain View police, who they believe ignored warnings about their troubled relative and her hatred for YouTube.
California police have reported that the woman who shot up the YouTube headquarters on Wednesday, injuring three, visited a gun range on the morning before the attack, as reported by New York Post.
"I didn't know she had a gun".
