Strange: Gabrielle Giffords Is Subscribed To Only 2 People On YouTube… And 1 is Jared Lee Loughner

A very strange fact has come to the attention of observant YouTubers today - It appears that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is subscribed to her own shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, on YouTube.

A very strange fact has come to the attention of observant YouTubers today – It appears that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is subscribed to her own shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, on YouTube.

As is seen in the image below, Giffords is subscribed to only two YouTube users. One is former Democratic Congressman Ike Skelton of Missouri and the other is Loughner, under the YouTube name of Classitup10.

It is unclear at this point as to how or why Representative Giffords became subscribed to Loughner’s channel. Odds are that Giffords was not the one in charge of actually managing her YouTube channel, uploading videos and subscribing to other YouTuber’s channels. That being said, it seems unlikely that whoever is in charge would have signed on to YouTube and subscribed to any channels, let alone Loughner’s, since the tragic events of last Saturday. If anyone had signed in to Loughner’s YouTube channel since Saturday you would think they would have at least added some kind of note about what happened, and none exists.

It just wouldn’t make sense for one of Giffords’ staff to subscribe to Loughner’s YouTube channel after the events of last weekend. But that only means one thing – Giffords’ YouTube account was subscribed to Loughner’s before the tragedy. But why? Could it be that Loughner was using YouTube to communicate with Giffords’ offices before the event? Didn’t anyone think it was a good idea to watch the videos before subscribing to this guy? I’ll be curious to see whether any intelligence regarding this strange phenomenon will emerge. Loughner, by the way, does not appear to be subscribed to Giffords. Any thoughts?

UPDATE (1-11-11): As pointed out by Taylen P. in the comments below, someone logged in to Giffords’ account and unsubscribed to Loughner’s account last night.
