Conspiracy Theorists Claim Florida Shooting Student Is 'Crisis Actor'


After Hogg had mentioned in an interview that his father was a retired Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, some online conspiracy theorists drummed up the idea that he was in cahoots with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to criticize President Trump.

The No. 1 trending video on YouTube right now is accusing Hogg of being a crisis actor and even Donald Trump Jr. conspicuously "liked" a tweet attacking the teenager.

But online memes and videos have unfairly claimed that the students are "actors" employed by anti-gun groups who speak out at mass shootings. The headline read, "EXPOSED: School Shooting Survivor Turned Activist David Hogg's Father in FBI, Appears To Have Been Coached On Anti-Trump Lines". While the video simply re-posts an old video of Mr Hogg, its description says "DAVID HOGG THE ACTOR", making clear why it is being uploaded and shared.

"The fact that these people are being critical of me as a witness and personally as a victim to this incident and having to witness this and live through it again and again, it is unbelievable", David said.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students, David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez, are among those targeted by conspiracy theories about the February 14 shooting that killed 17 people.

THE Florida school massacre has sparked sick conspiracy theories that the shooting was staged as a ruse to limit Americans' access to firearms. However, the Internet, which has become a breeding ground for trolls and pessimism alike, has begun to spin conspiracy theories about the teen, claiming that he is a "crisis actor".

Media Matters notes that Hogg has been under fire by conspiracy theorists and right wing media outlets since the day after the shooting, when one far-right account noted in a since-deleted tweet that Hogg was suspicious for speaking so eloquently.

YouTube apologised for promoting a video that claimed to expose David in its Top Trending section.

"These people saying this is absolutely disturbing", he said. "I hate that people think I'm an actor, but I don't have time to care about that".

Tampa Bay Times journalist Alex Leary received an email from Benjamin Kelly, an aide for Florida State Representative Shawn Harrison, which accused Hogg and fellow survivor Emma Gonzales of being paid actors.
