YouTube employee Teddy Kartzman had to endure the chaos and fear of today’s mass shooting at the company’s international headquarters just outside of San Francisco, CA.
Kartzman avoided injury or worse from what police are calling a domestic violence incident Tuesday that sent four people to the hospital and ended when the shooter killed herself.
After surviving the shooting incident, Kartzman and his fellow YouTubers had to endure a callous tweet from President Donald Trump that displayed both his utter insensitivity in times of crisis, and his complete tone-deafness on the issue of gun control.

“Was just briefed on the shooting at YouTube’s HQ in San Bruno, California,” Trump tweeted shortly after news of the active shooter broke. “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.”
Kartzman wasn’t going to stand idly by and let the heartless tweet hang out there uncontested.
I work at #YouTube, in San Bruno. Your thoughts and prayers are not needed. Do something about the proliferation of guns. And don't suggest arming software engineers.

We were all thinking it, but God bless Teddy Kartzman for tweeting it.
Trump’s original tweet certainly wasn’t the worst he’s sent, especially when we measure it against his own deplorably low standards. But it demonstrates once again how out of touch he is with the American people, and how unwilling he is say anything that may upset the NRA.
