Florida shooting: Student David Hogg denies 'actor' claim
February 21, 2018 4:27 pm
A survivor of last week’s school shooting in Florida has denied claims he is an actor with an anti-gun agenda.
Speaking on CNN, student David Hogg said he was a witness.
Conspiracy theorists online have accused the survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High of being paid actors who travel between the sites of mass shootings.
An aide to a Republican state representative has been fired for repeating the unsubstantiated claims.
David Hogg denounced the allegations on Tuesday night.
“I’m not a crisis actor,” David said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“I’m someone who had to witness this and live through this and I continue to be having to do that.”
“I’m not acting on anybody’s behalf.”
