Aghdam's family told NBC News that the 38-year-old San Diego resident believed that YouTube was discriminating against the videos she uploaded onto the site, restricting their viewership and cutting into her income.
On her website, she claimed that YouTube was discriminating against her videos, which included bizarre musical parodies and workout videos.
"Youtube filtered my channels to keep them from getting views!" Aghdam wrote on her website.
"There is no free speech in real world & you will be suppressed for telling the truth that is not supported by the system. Videos of targeted users are filtered & merely relegated, so that people can hardly see their videos!"
Earlier, Aghdam's father told NBC News that she believed that she had been cheated out of money from video views. Widely viewed videos earn money when YouTube puts ads on them, giving the video creator a cut of the advertiser's payment.
YouTube "stopped everything and now she has no income," Ismail Aghdam said in a brief phone interview Tuesday night.
