I know this is somewhat strange, however I'm trying to properly cite a quotation from a comment on Reddit.

I'm quoting Edward Snowden from an AMA that he did about 9 months ago. The specific quote for those interested is “Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.”

In the references list (APA format), how would I cite this?

This is a direct link to the comment that the quote was taken from: https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/36ru89/just_days_left_to_kill_mass_surveillance_under/crglgh2

This is my best guess at how to cite this:

Reddit. (2015). Just days left to kill mass surveillance under Section 215 of the Patriot Act. We are Edward Snowden and the ACLU's Jameel Jafer. AUA. Retrieved February 20, 2016 from https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/36ru89/just_days_left_to_kill_mass_surveillance_under/crglgh2
