Yesterday a humiliating attack was launched yesterday at YouTube’s US headquarters in San Bruno, California.
The center was evacuated after four people were wounded and the attacker died. The top names of technology giants also share messages from social media to condemn this attack. Google CEO Sundar Pinchai sent a message to employees all over the world.
The attack on YouTube’s headquarters was also on the agenda of social media. While comforting that death did not happen except for the aggressor, the workers of the technology giant were experiencing great panic. It was announced that the attacker had no connection with any terrorist organization. The wounded were also referred to the nearest hospital.
CEOs and founders of companies like Twitter, Apple, Uber, and Amazon share their messages over social media after the event. The most important of these was undoubtedly the messages from Apple CEO Tim Cook and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
From everyone at Apple, we send our sympathy and support to the team at YouTube and Google, especially the victims and their families.

Another person who reacted was US President Donald Trump:
Was just briefed on the shooting at YouTube’s HQ in San Bruno, California. Our thoughts and prayers are with everybody involved. Thank you to our phenomenal Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders that are currently on the scene.

Apparently, until the security forces were attacked during the attack, many people had to defend themselves. It is also a great advantage that the attacker is the only person here. Otherwise, more and more people caught in the beginning could be hurt if they were totally vulnerable.
