President Donald Trump’s eldest son took to Twitter to comment in the wake of reports that the “hateful” Instagram and YouTube channels of the shooter were pulled “immediately” after Tuesday’s shooting in San Bruno, Fox News reported.

San Diego resident Nasim Aghdam allegedly opened fire with a handgun at YouTube’s headquarters wounding three people before killing herself. Her connection to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) or how much of an activist she was were not clear as of Tuesday but the 39-year-old had been quoted in a news report about a PETA protest and posted videos on YouTube, mostly about animal rights, according to Fox News.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle:

Aghdam appears to have kept up an active presence online, including on YouTube, where she posted several videos, mostly about animal rights, some of which appear to be graphic, including one of a dog being boiled alive. Other videos extol the virtues of a vegan diet and feature Aghdam performing exercise routines.


With the nation embroiled in debating gun laws and attacking the National Rifle Association in the wake of  the Feb. 14 mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., which left 17 people dead, Trump Jr.’s tweet sparked another round of debate.

Many criticized what they saw as his politicizing of the incident.

Never mind that liberals took to the airwaves to spout about gun control immediately after the Florida school massacre, turning vigils for the victims into rallies and protests.

Many Twitter users called out the hypocrisy and defended the point Trump Jr. was making.
