These kinds of active shootings are mostly carried out by men but in this case, a woman Nasim Aghdam who is also reported to be a youtube user is involved in the shooting. According to an FBI report out of 160 incidents from 2000-2013, only six shooters who opened fire were a woman.
As Youtubers can receive payments for the advertisements accompanied in their videos but Youtube itself “de-monetizes” selective channels for various reasons and the ads stop running with them.
Youtube’s new advertising policy was enacted on February 20 that demonetized channels with less than 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours watch time. However, Aghdam’s channel had over 5,000 subscribers and many of her videos were demonetized.

Aghdam was annoyed by the Youtube’s Policy and had ranted on her Website by quoting Adolf Hitler’s saying; Make the lie big make it simple and keep saying it and eventually they will believe it. Shooter Aghdam’s message on her website targets Youtube and censorship.
