"I'm being discriminated and filtered on YouTube and I'm not the only one", Aghdam says as she stands in front of a background of green and white stars.

"There is no equal growth opportunity on YOUTUBE or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!" she said on her personal website.

More than 1,100 people work at the YouTube campus in San Bruno. Telegram reportedly has some 40 million users in Iran.

One video was a tutorial about how to massage buttocks, and another featured a song praising Bahaism, a religion that originated in Iran but is heavily suppressed by the Islamic Republic. In an English language clip, she railed on the company for the way her account was handled.

There are hundreds of mass shootings every year in the United States.

"I Googled 'Mountain View, ' and it was close to YouTube headquarters".

Kimia Shobeiri, 18, suggested the shooting was a ploy to get attention.

"She was a nice person", her brother said. "With this act she damaged the reputation of Iranians".

San Diego sheriff's Lt. Karen Stubkjaer said Thursday the father never told deputies that she was a risk to herself or others when he reported her missing.

"It was a very normal conversation. How [could] she shoot the people?" her father reflected in an interview with ABC News.

Details are emerging about the woman behind the YouTube headquarters shooting Tuesday that injured three people in San Bruno, California.

After the attack, her father, Ismail Aghdam stated that she had told her family that she hated YouTube for censoring her videos and that she was angry about that.

Aghdam was "calm and cooperative" as she faced the officers that time, giving no indication of her reason for going there or mentioning YouTube at all.

"The woman confirmed her identity to us and answered subsequent questions", police said, adding that "her family was notified that she had been located".

According to a late-night San Bruno Police Department release, Aghdam was a 39-year-old resident of San Diego.

"Maybe she bought one" recently, he said.

Aghdam's family became anxious over the weekend after she stopped answering her phone. He said he called police, who found her and said she was fine, and that they would keep an eye on her. "If I had to pick neighbors, I'd have them all around".

She says Aghdam was entered into a national missing person's database. "It's not like she stood out", he told Mercury News.

"The reality is we have to deal with this all the time", Dr. Andre Campbell, a 23-year trauma surgeon at San Francisco General, told reporters during a press conference Tuesday, according to a WDSU report. He said his family began worrying about Nasim over the weekend.

"She was a weirdo", said one neighbor, who would only give her name as Lucy.

"Our family is in absolute shock and can't make sense of what has happened yesterday".

"Although no words can describe our deep pain for this tragedy, our family would like to express their utmost regret, sorrow for what has happened to innocent victims", the statement read.

The company did however issue a brief statement through a spokesman Wednesday afternoon, saying they would increase security at all offices worldwide for the long-term future. The bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tweeted that their San Francisco field office was also responding to the scene.
