You probably love guns a little too much when you start sending death threats to the kids who survived last month’s school shooting in Florida…
David Hogg, who survived the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and who has since been publicly outspoken about the need for gun reform, is turning to the FBI for help after his family received several credible death threats online.
Hogg (pictured above, left alongside fellow shooting survivor Cameron Kasky) and his mother, Rebecca Boldrick, reported that they involved the FBI after one particular instance where a Facebook commenter wrote on one of her photos (below):
“You can change your settings, but you can never change your faces, your whole family is exposed because of your piece of shit kid.”
That’s disturbing enough, but the same commenter also went and called out Hogg’s upcoming birthday, cryptically claiming the date “will be an interesting event,” and voicing support for the NRA and the right to bear arms.
Interesting how??? Well, interesting enough that the FBI has taken it as credible enough to launch an investigation.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are also involved, considering the commenter’s Facebook profile apparently indicated he was from Canada.
(Side note: nothing quite like a non-American citizen making online death threats to an American teenager after an American school shooting while citing the American constitution, right?! Ugh…)
Anyways, it’s up to law enforcement now, as it should be. Scary!!
