He has parlayed his experience into celebrity.

    One of the Parkland school shooting survivors is calling on tourists to boycott the State of Florida for spring break as a way to get legislators’ attention focused on gun control. “Let's make a deal DO NOT come to Florida for spring break unless gun legislation is passed,” David Hogg, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student who is a leader in the #neveragain movement, posted on Twitter on Saturday. Hogg said he hoped his tweet would make state politicians listen if the “billion-dollar tourism industry in Florida” makes gun control measures a priority. “If the legislators aren’t going to...

    Is fame giving delusions of grandeur to David Hogg, the Parkland student who’s become a media celebrity as an advocate of more gun control? During a long interview with Joy Reid on her MSNBC show today, Hogg at one point looked directly into the camera and said that in contrast with several other companies that had offered discounts to NRA members: “FedEx still has not dropped their deal with the NRA. The CEO is one of the biggest donors to the NRA. And we have to take care of them. And as a result, if they aren’t going to, we’re...

    After appearing as the No. 1 trending video for hours, YouTube finally removed a video that suggested one of the high school students who survived the Parkland, Fl. shooting last week was an actor. In a statement to Fox News, a YouTube spokesperson said: "This video should never have appeared in Trending. Because the video contained footage from an authoritative news source, our system misclassified it. As soon as we became aware of the video, we removed it from Trending and from YouTube for violating our policies. We are working to improve our systems moving forward.” The title of the...

    Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg swats down Donald Trump Jr. as 'immature, rude, and inhumane' Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg, 18, blasted Donald Trump Jr. as "immature, rude, and inhumane" after the president's eldest son "liked" conspiracy theories on Twitter that allege Hogg had been fed talking points by his father, who is a former FBI agent.

A number of pro-Trump websites, including One America News and Gateway Pundit, pushed the...
