A teenager with nearly a million followers on YouTube reportedly threatened the streaming platform’s headquarters with a mass shooting after being banned from the site for violating its hate speech policy.
Soph, a 14-year-old who goes by the handle @sewerrat, tweeted a photo of herself and what appears to be an assault rifle, Buzzfeed first reported. The accompanying caption read “YouTube headquarters here I come.” . . .

The high school freshman was banned from YouTube earlier this month after posting the latest in a string of anti-LGBT videos.
“If you want to be sexually promiscuous as an adult with other consenting adults, feel ,” she announced in a 12-minute clip, titled “Pride and Prejudice.” “Just don’t try to get kids roped in with your street orgies.” . . .
After her channel was taken down from YouTube, her Patreon and Bonfire pages were similarly removed and links she provided to a Bitcoin Cash site did not work. Her videos, including “Pride and Prejudice,” can still be viewed on the streaming site BitChute.
