    Heard about this earlier, haven't looked in to it - linked PDS for more info.

    One dead (the suspect), four injured - sad times.

    I personally don't agree with the video she put on her Facebook.

    "Why did they restrict it? Because I was famous"
    "They age restricted it so i get less views".

    She also says how her newer videos aren't getting as many views. This isn't to just to do with YouTube, it could be her video quality is going downhill. I haven't watched her, so I can't really comment on that.

    However, I did see this picture:

    IIRC you don't get revenue if people use AdBlock on your videos. Views != Revenue in some cases.

    We're living in a time where somebody shot up a company's hq because she disagreed with them.

    After watching her video, she does seem a little bit psycho though.

    Also - is it more or has this really died off quick in the news in comparison to other shootings? I thought this would be around for a long time given the target.

    This is the reason why guns need to be banned, or at least have stricter rules. One person doesn't agree, people get injured. I also saw someone replying to the video she posted saying something along the lines of "Iranian woman tries to fight for free speech. Look what happens!"
    I don't think this was for free speech. I think this was her getting upset that people were not watching her videos. Has there been a statement from youtube on twitter or something about this whole event?

    Possibly, but remember nobody has died (at the time of writing this comment). There were only 3 injuries - so while this is bad, there have been worse shootings.
