Parkland shooting survivor, 17-year-old David Hogg, has been one of the prominent faces in media since the rampage occurred. He’s been very vocal about the need for gun control reform in the United States. All that attention has put his family in the crosshairs of the pro-gun people.
Family members have turned to the FBI after receiving multiple death threats online.
Hogg’s mother, Rebecca Boldrick, went to the FBI after someone wrote a disturbing message on her Facebook photo.
“You can change your settings, but you can never change your faces, your whole family is exposed because of your piece of (s…) kid, btw his whole plan has backfired on him, im sure his birthday celebration will be an interesting evet. (F***) you and him God Belss the NRA and the right to bear arms, wrong crowd to (f****) with idiotsticks.”
Another message was:
“You should have had an abortion. Your son is a psychopathic douche bag. Drive the whole family over a cliff… just admit failure.”
Aside from the FBI, Rebecca has also called Facebook and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police because the person sending the threatening message is from Canada.
Rebecca released a statement saying that while some people don’t agree with the family’s anti-fun message, it doesn’t give them the right to threaten her family.
Coincidentally, Hogg’s father is an ex-FBI agent.
