“Soph,” a white 14-year-old Bay Area vlogger and high school freshman who has built her fame around Islamaphobic anti-LGBTQ videos, was recently booted from YouTube for posting a hateful anti-gay video. The vlogger threatened to kill YouTube’s CEO.
In their most recent video, entitled “Pride and Prejudice,” Soph — dressed in a short-haired wig and an ironic t-shirt — says, “Unfortunately, as you know, last month was Pride, which meant we all had to endure 30-days of AIDS-carrying pedophile victims patting themselves on their backs for their lifestyles. I had an especially hard time considering that I live in California where there was a puddle of diseased load waiting for me whenever I dared to step out of my house.”
Soph goes on to call Pride a “fudge-packing fest,” says that LGBTQ people accuse folks like her of homophobia to “detract attention away from the rates of STDs and pederasty involving homosexuals.” She then says that Islam is the real threat against queer people.
Slamming Islam is all part of her schtick. In a May 2019 video, she dressed in a chador, pretended to be Muslim and talked about being “raped by my 40-year-old husband” and going “to San Fran and stone the sh*t out of some gays.”
After YouTube kicked her off its platform, Soph tweeted an image of herself with an assault rifle, stating, “YouTube headquarters here I come.” She later deleted the tweet and wrote it was “obviously a joke.”
After YouTube disabled comments on her videos in April 2019, Soph made another video threatening to kill YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki.
In it, she said, “Susan, I’ve known your address since last summer. I’ve got a Luger and a mitochondrial disease. I don’t care if I live. Why should I care if you live or your children? I just called an Uber. You’ve got about seven minutes to draft up a will. … I’m coming for you, and it ain’t gonna be pretty.”
Naturally, Soph plays off all of this as a joke, though she acknowledges that words like hers can lead to real-world violence. In her “Pride and Prejudice” video, she says, “Make sure to blame me in your manifesto,” a reference to mass shooters who have posted their manifestos online shortly before gunning down innocent people.
