Internet Rips GOP’s Lauren Boebert For Mocking Parkland Shooting Survivor

Published

GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert, who gained prominence after pledging to carry a handgun in the Capitol, triggered an avalanche of negative comments after she mocked a 20-year-old gun-control activist who survived the 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Florida for condemning gun violence.

David Hogg, who became an outspoken supporter of gun control after a gunman killed 17 people at his high school in Parkland, Florida, had initially tweeted at Boebert and her fellow freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, saying they represented the “real threats” inside Congress.

“They can put up all the fencing around the capitol the real threats of @mtgreenee and @laurenboebert will still be inside until @GOPLeader takes a stand,” he said.

Boebert fired back, tweeting: “David, please. We all saw how tough you were when questioned face to face. Give your keyboard a rest, child.”

Both Boebert and Taylor Greene, who were tagged in the tweet, have promoted baseless claims challenging President Donald Trump’s reelection defeat and have associated themselves with the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Twitter users came in defense of Hogg, blasting the Colorado congresswoman for promoting violence.
